Forth in my series of 'Out of my Comfort Zone' experiments. This time flowers, I have no idea what it is called but I thought it was so pretty and worthy of a photograph. It was residing in the grounds of a park in dorset. If you do know what it is, let me know please.
Many thanks for the kind C&C's on my uploads. I have been pleasantly surprised by the response to my 'out of the comfort zone' series. All votes and comments are much appreciated.
Steve.

ps. I'm sorry for just clicking lately but I have had so little time to get on here and there are so many worthy photos that just need recognising with a vote.
Take care everyone.
