Oh very eye catching.
Lovely work, I like that very much.
Well taken and worked.

Single cornflowers are super to take I think.
I did everso well with mine a long time ago.

It's very effective, Keith, and it's worth trying something different, quite refreshing.
The effect is spectacular and the blues are really nice. You did good work Keith, well done.
