Calendulas are amazing - they keep on flowering, and flowering and flowering.

I took the first photos of these in June this year, and this was taken just now, despite mildew, no rain and last night's first frost.

I've never grown flowers that "glow" before, they give so much colour it hurts!

Embarrassingly, I realised that the title I gave this photo is the name of a Donna Summer albumn... oh well Grin

A lovely bright image to view on another dreich day where I am, Katie.
Your wide aperture and focal length of 100 has allowed selective focussing on the near part of the bloom and captured it in very fine detail.
Ronnie.

Thanks very much Ronnie! The sun may be glorious, but I really wish we had some rain - there's been hardly any through the summer and early autumn and everything is bone dry.
