I saw this in one of the greenhouses in Kings Heath Park a couple of weeks ago. It is not yet open but I thought it spoke of things to come.
Thanks for looking

Love your colour processing, particularly the background. It has the look of a Japanese screen-painting.

I love the positioning of the buds, the muted colours and the fact that you have managed to pick up the exact shade for the frame. Lovely image. This is the sort of thing I would put on my wall.
