'Meorheim Beauty'

It has taken me ages to locate some of these fabulous flowers,none of my local garden centres stock them Sad,despite them being 'easy to grow' ,so I had to resort to on-line buying.
Taken today bathed in lovely sunshine in situ in my garden..I used a small diffuser to cut down the harsher rays but I wanted the bright colours to shine through too.
A slightly shallower dof than I am used to but I needed the speed as there was a slight breeze blowing.
2 images combined as the lower flower was in shade & I haven't enough hands to hold the diffuser,camera ( yep,handheld ) & a reflector..that'll teach me to get the tripod out Blush
The bg is my garden path.
There will be more of these,I apologize in advance Wink

Thanks for taking the time to call in.
Janet xx
