I love peonies. I grow them but mine are white and red. I found this one in the gardens at Como Park.
I am not sure what kind of a flower this is. it looks like a dahlia. It also looks like summer. Bright and colorful.
The only reason this got photographed is because it is the closest shared bike rack to the building that the raccoon climbed last week.
The greenline adds a bit of color to St. Paul. . . oh and transportation too.
For a time there was a sign in the window that said “The Irish are coming” and the grey trim was painted red. The suite was vacant for some time before the Parlour moved in and restored the trim to its original color. Thanks. The red was pretty but it felt like vandalism.
I don’t take a lot of selfies but could not resist the glass and I like the background too.
