Imperfect Beauties

By EAS
So often I fail to see imperfections in flowers until I view them on the monitor and discover what the lens has revealed. These two images prove to be the case as to the naked eye the Lily flowers appeared purest white. They are, however to my mind still beautiful, as I hope you'll agree.

Finding the site extremely slow and though I have taken some time to click on many images, realise I haven't managed to view them all as I'd have wished.

This may well be time for me to take another break from the site. Thanks to one and all who have been so generous in their support.

If you decide to take a break from EPZ (and we all need one from time to time) enjoy yourself whilst away.

Thank you, Barbara! Trying hard to get on top of so much in the garden but we are also into the final 2 months of selling up the farming business, so life is ultra tough at present. The Lilies are indeed from the garden here. Will try and look in from time to time, especially for you! Grin

Barbs always knows the best way to put things.

Love these longiflorums, Ann. To me they have one of the nicest lily scents and you have so done their beauty justice with this duo. Especially in V1!

And I so know what you mean about discovering things on the computer. So many orchid pics I took at a garden show a few years ago revealed fine squiggly fibres from the packing material on the orchids Sad I didn't see them on the LCD. Although if I had, nothing could've been done 'cos I couldn't exactly fiddle with the orchids at the show!

Two cracking shots Ann. V1 is superb with excellent detail and the black background suits them so well.

I hope all goes well with the farm sale.
