Great color Herman. Your photos are always identifiable, aside from the observation that you almost load around 11 PM my time. You have lovely poppies.

Herman, have you seen a Dr about those green fingers of yours? I am going to 'Google Earth' Swellendam and I bet I will be able to identify your house from the array of colour, it will be like The Great Wall of China, visible from space.

Again, you have captured the colour so perfectly and of course the clarity of your photography is second to non.
