Very nicely captured, Graham: a delight every year in the garden.
Torn between V 1 and 4 this time with V 4 possibly ahead by a nose.

V1 for me Graham, the beauty of these flowers is amazing, do not think the crawlies have got to them yet as unmarked.

Looks in pristine condition, Graham, possibly favouring v2, but really they're all pretty good angles.

All beautiful Grahm. many thanks foryour comment on the Sculpture Park images on Caol Ruadh. This is their first exhibition and will continue until october. They plan to set up another one next June.
Some of the sculptures have already been sold and taken away by the buyers, a bit disappointing as I had been looking forward to seeing a particular one as well as the Tidal Flow. If you goofle 2 For Argyll" website you will find a really good feature on it photographed and written by a close friend who operates the website, a great way with words and will make the park even more alive for you. Hope you mange to get there.
Regards Mary

what a pleasant rose, I can imagine how much you like it... all the pleasant shades and certainly the scent to complement it.
Like Ronnie it was v4 that attracts me first, but then v1 is a very close second.
