Good morning....
Thank you for your continued support much appreciated
Another flower I found but this time outside our Lodge door so not sure if it is wild...the whole tree is covered in these bunches of flowers. V2 a different flower, different settings hence the darker background
I am Guest editor this week so my time will be divided between yourselves and the galleries, apologies if I only click and not comment on your images.
Have a nice MondayGrinGrin
