This was taken two winters ago - last winter I was brain dead and forgot to plant bulbs Smile This year the flower beds are primed and waiting !
Thanx for all the votes and comments on yesterday's Serval upload - I know there is to much light but I had just a small camera then and it was 12 noon Smile
Have a wonderful and colourful day Smile

I saw this and just knew it was yours, Herman. What outstanding color juxtaposition. That purple blue almost looks too intense to be real. I would love to see a "forest" photo of your garden. This is lovely.

Don't know about too much light; what I see is a beautiful flower capturing the suns rays and showing all her colour. There is nothing basic about this shot, in fact there is never anything basic about your pictures Herman. As previously stated, you have a distinctive style.

I like this Herman, very vivid colours and the subject is fully in focus. I'm not usually a fan of this but I think on this image it would work - considered selective colour here, leaving everything B/W except for the flower? This would address my only gripe on this one - the red in the background is a bit distracting. Otherwise I like this a lot! Smile
