A lovely image Herman - do you know their colour can change dependent on the soil - acidic or alkaline?
Sad day for the world - an iconic figure who was a true inspiration - '...I have a dream...'.

The first I heard was here and I join with Peter and others in mourning the death of one of the truly great men that ever walked this earth.

Your Hydrangea images are superb, Herman. Well up to your normal standards.

There is a lovely freshness to these two images. I love the soft tones of v1 all working together, but equally v2's vibrant contrasting colours are really striking. Smile
Very sad news about Nelson Mandela.

Passing away of Nelson Mandela, although inevitable, is a great loss. He will always be remembered with great respect not only by his own nation but also by all the nations of the world.
