Thanks to everyone for clicking and commenting on my last upload "Dicentra Drops"....it's much appreciated Grin

Got home a little earlier from work today and caught sight of the sun backlighting the Dicentra in my garden.

I couldn't let that opportunity go without getting a shot so before I even got changed there I was out in the garden, in high heels and sharp suit, down on my knees Blush

Anyhow, I'm quite pleased with the result and think it was worth getting muddy stilletoes.

Thanks for looking guys.

Wow Elaine, a great result from grabbing the moment. I'm sure the stilettos will wipe clean!

Take care

Hi Peter,

Judging by your PF you don't need to don a pair of heels to get good shots....your images of Lesley's roses are beautiful Smile
