Peacock Extravagance






I was enjoying a meandering stroll the other day through thee lovely Beacon Hill Park, when I came across a gorgeous peacock in full glory. He was a spectacular sight, and stunningly beautiful... needless to say, I was quite flattered! What magnificent birds-de-plume...

i love Peacock. Just yesterday I was searching for pictures of Peacock. I am stating to believe that there is something in the air that makes people to think about the same thing, even when we are far from each other. Visit My marrakesh and you'll know what I mean.

What a wonderful Peacock Post. That must have taken so much research! Peacocks are such amazing creatures. Reflection such beautiful creation. Inspring. Now I'm going to be dwelling on Peacocks for awhile.

I love that peacock printed canvas.

I have been debating getting a peacock feather tattoo, and might take the plunge now. I think the mixing of blues, golds, and greens are fantastic.

Thank you for the beauty of your blog. The peacocks are inspiring in the study of color and textures, as is all of your site.

I love all your peacock finds! I've always sort-of secretly wished I had a peacock of my very own. They're so beautiful. Makes me want to go to Victoria to check them out wandering around Beacon Hill Park. :)
