Still manages to look so attractive even at this stage, though doubtless down to your skills as much as anything! Really like this a lot.

Good to see a grotty flower upload like this Jenn.
I do feel it is a neglected subject on here.
They do not need to be in colourful full bloom for a good shot !!

It is the contrast between life and death that is appealing to me as well.
Magnificent work Jenn.
