My Queen of Diamonds

The much loved "Queen of the Night" Tulip wearing her royal jewels thanks to some heavy rain! I had this image made very large, printed off and framed. It's now the main feature on one of my kitchen walls.

To Ray (Billyray) and Robin (graceland) for their much appreciated UAs for my Pink Dahlia series "2010" and to Rob (rpba18205) for his UA for "Love in a Mist", Thank You so much.

I see the details re my image aren't appearing for some reason but it's my usual Panasonic Lumix!
