Yesterday was a day of glorious sunshine, and the temperature reached a high of 20C. The ornamental cherry is in flower now, so today's image is the cherry, and V.2 one of the many wild anemones that are carpeting the meadows now.

Good morning Carol, two beautifully detailed images from you this morning, each with its own merits, that really warrant two individual uploads. having to choose is difficult, but i think v2 just nips it for me.
