Wonderful close up work, I love the contrast between the sharpness of the centre and the soft out of focus petals. I think you should take Allie's advice more often!

Just a Clematis... of course it is. but what a clematis. I see your standards have not dropped since last I saw your work. Unfortunatley ran out of superlatives and couldt think of anything else to say about your work. I cannot just go on saying fantastic,splendid, bla di bla...keep it up.
