Good morning
Thank you for all your votes and comments and especially to Netta for her UA.
Another image from the weekend at Kirstenbosch gardens. The gardens were a profusion of colour with bushes of these pincushions in various colours. V2 is the bigger picture and v3 another closeup.
Have a nice dayGrinGrin

Both V1 & 2 cut the mustard for me. Can't call it as they are both so different. I'd vote for either so my vote is for both V1 & 2. Lovely colours.

V1 is so beautiful with b/g diffused flowers.
V2 with the mountains as a backdrop for those amzing flowers is stunning.
I prefer V1 to V3 but nevertheless a lovelu image.
