Played around indoors yesterday for a couple of hours until I managed to get the colours of these roses recorded as accurately as possible.
The omission of a border is deliberate.

My thanks as always to everyone who CandC'd Another Orchid, and with special thanks to Dave{WhiteRose1} for his GEA, and to Ray {Billyray} for his UA, both of which really made my day.

Ronnie.

Your "playing around" paid off, Ronnie, you've produced a cracker. The colour is stunning, and the black background with no border is exactly what it needed to set the trio off. Time for another award, I think.
