I would call it the blushing rose but it doses not matter what you call it it's a beauty. Well done Peter.
Looking forward to your next 6 months.

Good clear close up shot Peter. Much better without the border too. The glow you have achieved dead centre of the subject is also nice to see.

A splendid frame filler Peter.
And it could have been worse for poor Eleanor.
It could have said it needs to be tied up against the wall !!
