Lynne, thank you so much for your User Award on old Kilroy there. Well chuffed GrinGrin

Alrighty, people, here’s something from the garden from a few days ago. As luck would have it, some morning light had found its way through the foliage and landed smack dab on this. I meant to look up its ID but got sidetracked. Bah. I want to find out what this is for my own record and it should be easy enough...once I actually get round to it and not get sidetracked again! Note to self...

Fabulous - inky dark green shadows, golden light and curves that undulate across the frame.
