These grape hyacinth are planted in a tub, which I placed on a table to photograph. So I was able to get a good pov without half killing myself BlushBlushBlush
Thanks for looking and have a good week everyone SmileSmileSmile

Helen, this is the first image I have looked at this morning and it just jumped out at me as being a real winner, I absolutely love it! But now I'm going to ask you to share your secrets, how did you get the effect? Is it through glass or have you merged the grape hyacinths with a spires web??:

Thank you Anne for your comment and your User Award - much appreciated.
