Unfortunately there will be no holiday pictures from the Rhine and the Koblenze Flower Festival as sudden illness meant we had to cancel our holiday.

So back to the old stuff - sweet pea taken outdoors in situ, a few days ago and one handed, black card held behind with other.

Details: see EXIF

Many thanks to all who CandC'd on "Wall Flowers'.
