Many thanks for all your comments on my 'Reworked Montage' shot. With special thanks to Brian 65, RonnieAG and Eas (Ann) for their user awards. Three awards for one shot. Extremely delighted at this response.

Yes, a real beauty but a Dutch Iris. Funnily enough my hubby keeps calling them Lilies too!
