A lovely flavour of the garden, Patty.

Weather bluddy awful again here - raining heavily.
Forecast to be sun.
Need to get MiL out of the house so it can be steam cleaned (joke).

Three wonderful captures of these industrious little fellas with pin sharp clarity and perfectly capture and processed colouring. Image one for me please, I love the intensity and warmth of the colour.

Thanks for sharing Patty

a really good set
loving the colours in V1 especially

V1 is one of your best PattySmile

These are all beautiful Patty. I love the cone flowers, ours are just coming out and struggling in the wind. I also love the sea holly which grows everywhere on the beaches nearby but it will not grow in our garden for some reason!! V1 is a winner for me today.

The colours of the cone flowers are gorgeous Patty and the sharpness of the sea holly leaves
is so marked with V3.
