Alliums, supplying a little "light relief" on one of many grey and difficult days, difficult thanks to the poor light, high winds and seemingly non-stop rain at present. Gardening as well as photography are activities which have to be fitted into whatever brief occasion the weather allows!

Thanks to all who looked in on my previous image, shared with me their thoughts and votes, and especially to Graham (digital_boy) for his much valued UA.

A very apt title for this image, Ann Smile. A good presentation on the diagonal, love it. Carol

Indeed, a very good title for this floral explosion, Ann: we seem to be on the same wavelength today, both posting floral shots with fill-in flash in poor light.
And it has worked a treat with these Alliums.

These Alliums still stay standing and look interesting despite having lost most of the petals. Excellent detail and very well composed.
