Out SO early!! Well in front of ours Val. A lovely intense colour, with that pink halo around it too. I like the water drops, _too_ many deluges though this yearSad

Thank you for your nice comments everyone, I'm so pleased you all like it. This bush flowers early every year Leo but it's not always a bonus. I think some of the blooms will get washed away if it carries on like this!

This literally jumped out at me, how did you get the glow? This is a prize winning specimen, perfect petals and lovely colour. Well done.
All the best from a fellow Torbay resident.

Thanks Fran. I used the eraser tool set to pink to match the petals, traced round the edge of the flower with a soft brush, and then Gaussian blur having selected the flower and inverted.
Good wishes from Dartmouth, only a ferry ride away!
