Thought I would upload this lovely Cistus for you, until I can sort through all the pics I took while in Cornwall at the Eden project.
I really like this Cistus as it looks so much like crumpled tissue paper.
Such a pretty flower, but only lasts about a day, when others bloom to take their place.
I hope you like it.
The weather has just, in the last hour, turned from yukky cold mist to lovely sunshine, so am looking forward to getting out into the garden.
Hope you are all enjoying the holiday weekend....I had a lovely time in Cornwall.

Thank you so much for your comments on my Black Star, really appreciated.

Take care, & enjoy the rest of the weekend break.
Hilary Smile

Quote:looks just like crumpled tissue paper

That was my immediate thought Hilary. The papery look produces a wonderful image. Very well captured.

It just needs a good iron, Hilary.
I found the white ones more difficult to photograph, so admire your image very much. The centres remind me of turtles!
