Many thanks for the c and c on my last upload which was very much appreciated especially to Taggart (Jenn) for her UA.
A zonal pelargonium taken earlier in the year.

As I am making an enforced migration upwards from Windows XP (to possibly Win 8) later in the week which involves lots of backing up and the searching for long lost software and serial numbers, it could be some time before I am uploading again, so may I take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support, clicks and comments and to wish you all a Happy Christmas/Holiday and a Prosperous New Year.

Not an easy plant to photograph but you have succeeded so well, David: there's a lovely light on both blooms and leaves and the image could only be your's.
Hope the upgrade goes OK for you.
And may a wish you and your's a merry Christmas and everything that you would wish for yourselves in the New Year.
Ronnie.

I just noticed the stem of the leaf on the left hand side seems to have been edited out, and the leaf is floating in mid air.

Thanks Alda. I did notice this, but on checking with the original the stem was not visible. I could have moved the leaf closer, but I think it would have spoiled the symmetry of the shot Smile
