Seed of delight

By Mavis
I am so pleased that just ONE seed can give me so much pleasure. Seems it doesn't take much to keep me happy.I made a fish pie yesterday, potatoes, parsley & runner beans out of the garden . Two of my best friends to eat it & mmmm over the taste . Then they looked at my Sunflower and were amazed to see such loveliness .

I have cropped this but even the back of the flower and the symetry gave me pleasure . Hope u enjoy xx

Superb detail and colour, Mavis. I find V1 just that lieel bit more unusual as a composition, so it takes the majority of my vote Smile

I love the angle/composition in V2 but for once I find the hints of background plants a bit distracting, so it's V1 for me. Really strong, vibrant image.

Two nice images I do like V2 with its little drops of rain, but I think for detail V1 gets my vote. Carole
