I took this photograph just as it started to rain, if you look closely you are able to make out a few minute rainspots. Luckily the blooms survived the rainstorm well, and I was able to gather a nice bouquet so that I can enjoy their fragrance indoors, whilst watching the rain outside.
Thankyou all for your previous interest, and I hope that you enjoy this picture.
Brian.

Have never seen sweet peas looking better, this is a fantastic close-up Brian and, once again, you have achieved a great 3D effect, excellent!

Nice clear colourful shot Brian. One of my late mother-in-law's favourite flowers. She would have loved this shot.

Lovely blooms Brian. I was given a bunch by a young man when I was 15 so have always had a soft spot for them. Glad you were able to cut them as I'm sure you know the more you cut the more they grow xxx
