Beautiful image Colleen. Whilst I was in Bulgaria last week I took some shots of the blossom on the trees, and whilst I was doing it I thought of you and your fabulous flower images. I'm probably not going to post any of those shots as they just aren't up to your standards, but at least you give me inspiration and something to think about!
