Henry Clay's Ashland estate
We made a short trip to visit the peony garden at the Henry Clay estate, I think this makes the 3rd year in a row that I tried to photograph it. I need to look through the shots a bit better but nothing stands out. It did start raining some and I had the chance to shoot in the formal garden for as long as I wanted with no interruptions and had a great amount of fun, so the trip wasn't a total loss. Peonies are some of my favorite flowers and the garden there has very unique ones, they don't last long and as you know tend to look ragged very quickly. Here is an unidentified white flower found in the English formal garden there.
In other news, the mother fox has returned to my backyard to another summer of giving me the evil eye for minutes at a time. Here's the shot from last year, my Iphone shot from the other day looked much the same.
