Anthropomorphised Peonies

This peony looks like it's peeping out from a white bonnet, and giving me a come hither wink at the same time.

There was a fantastic short shower and I snapped this one with the drops still glistening. Does it look like it's weeping?

Sadly for the peony, but happily for me, one branch had been knocked down by the rain. I bought it inside and artistically arranged it in a bud vase. It looks like it's trying to attract my attention by jumping on one leg and waving. Possibly it would like to be shoved in a glass jar by someone who knows what they are doing.

I couldn't bear the way it looked so I chopped its head off and lovingly floated it in a bowl. Drastic, but I think its happier this way.
