Pincushion

By ColleenA
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

Morning Colleen. What a wonderful set. Love them all but think V2 my favourite, the sky and mountains behind look stunning Grin Grin

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.

Glorious!
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.
