This morning was very sunny and crisp so I took some photos of the few flowers left in the garden. Penstemons vary in shapes and colours but are always attractive.

f16 1/60thsec flash at 1/16th + natural morning light. Photofiltre but just a touch.

Thank you for your recent comments a you left on my photos.

Hoping you like this new upload.

Have a good evening,
