The evening light was reflecting from our conservatory window and catching the penstemons.

Thank you all for recent c&c's on Choc Ice.SmileSmile

Remarkable light which really enhances the beauty of the rather stunningly vibrant flowers, a real pleasure to view.

Beautiful lighting Carole and a cracking good exposure. GrinGrin
Does anyone agree with me that the lowest of the flower heads looks exactly like a Womble?? Do people still remember them or is it just old goats like me!!
Great fun.

The light is so magical here, Carole, I expected a little fairy to be sitting inside one of the openings.
Ron is very observant, and I agree about the flower looking like a Womble, yes I do remember them.

Penstemons are another new one on me Carole.
They look like pink bluebells to me !!
Are you sure your colour calibration is not a wee bit off ?
And I have often thought about getting a conservatory,
but the problem is, it has too many windows.
I will just stick to my garden hut so the wife cannot see inside as to what I am up too !!
