picture perfect peonies

I bought a few potted peony bushes a little while ago, planted them in the backyard & this past weekend I walked outside to find the most beautiful blooms! I couldn't help but snap a few pictures to share with everyone.

Speaking of snapping a few pictures... I bought a new camera a week ago & I'm so in love with it already. I traded in my Canon T1i, that I bought used, for a brand new Canon 60D. The new camera came with the new lens I've also been wanting, so it was too good of a deal for me to pass up. In a perfect world I would've purchased the 5D, but it doesn't exactly fit in my real word budget. Oh well :) I can already tell I'm going to be more than happy with the 60D!

And although it doesn't really feel like it in Portland right now, summer is right around the corner. I'm working on putting together a summer bucket list to share with you all. I made one last year & had so much fun with it - I decided it needed to make an appearance again this year! :)

Hope you're all having a fantastic Tuesday!

  1. You had me at new camera ;) So glad you're loving it! Love those flower shots!!

  2. Gorgeous! Can't wait to see what fun you get up to with your new toy!

    And seriously, why is Portland hell bent against summer? I mean, I love October weather but not in June!

  3. Congratulations on your new camera! That's so exciting :o) The photos you took with it are beautiful. You're going to have to give me some tips on planting peonies. I would love to plant some in our back yard once we get it all put together.

  4. New cameras are like the gift for yourself that keeps on giving. Snapping photos and looking through all your beautiful shots are kind of like presents in themselves. Enjoy!
