Sweet Williams

By helenlinda
So I lasted two days before withdrawal symptoms crept under my skin and here I am with some Sweet Williams that I bought at Aldi for 1.50 SmileSmileSmile
I'm off to Locking for the weekend with a group of International Students who come to our home on Sundays for Bible Study. We have been there for about 8 years now at the invitation of the Church and all of us are hosted by a group of families who very lovingly invite the students to stay for the weekend. I know it is forecast rain for the next few days, so we will be taking Laigretto, Uno and a few other games that are easy even with very little English.
Hoping to get some good photos - Thanks for clicks and comments on Forget me not 2
See you all soon
Helen

You've made a great job of what I'd consider a humble flower.
The colour and detail are stunning.
Beautifully composed.

The composition, subtle colours and the treatment work together. This has a sense of heavy flowers draping, weighed down by rain.

Crikey !!!!....for one very brief moment, I thought I was looking at a beautiful straight shot !!!

But a 'Large' view revealed a slightly 'caressed' beautiful shot.....almost had me fooled with this corker !!!!

This is exquisite - the tones remind me of rich woven tapestry - can also see this as a greeting card - boxed in a set of 12. Gorgeous.
