Good afternoon, a late upload for me today, was surprised by my husband and taken out for a romantic Champagne breakfast. After terrible thunder storms last night we are back to some sunshine.
This is the blue flower fully opened, I uploaded the "Inner beauty" version last week....see V2 as a reminder.
