**Sunlit 2 **

By dianah
A dahlia that I bought this weekend and just managed to plant it in the few minutes it stopped raining! It really is this beautiful colour..I just tweaked the contrast slightly. The background is the grass.
Another baby grandson born on Thursday within 4 hours ! He is just beautiful and why I am into sunlit things I think ! Thank you everybody for all your comments and smiles ! Smile
