Good shot Keith,but I am a bit disappointed after reading your title.
I thought you were on a reunion with your old Scouting buddies sitting
round a campfire singing about your Ging Gang Goolies !!

A pieris japonica, Keith. I like your overhead pov with the layers of star shaped leaves. The texture works well, too.

Can you imagine a 6ft-4in 'Scout' shorts ?????, & I definitely can't sing, & you really don't want
to know about my Ging-gang-goolies..........what a terrifying thought, even for me !!!!!.Grin

It's quite an exotic looking shrub which must bring a bright splash of colour to the garden, Keith: obviously other smaller critters appear to find it appealing too.
Very nice crisp and colourful shot.

Thanks Keith
My scouting days came to an end when I was dismissed for turning up in my high heels !!
(And for once a true story here.My troup was disbanded after the scout master ran of too New Zealand with the brownie mistress and with the money from the scout and brownie funds !!)

Great work Keith!
Great contrasting colours Keith.. With the added texturing for flavour.. Crowd pleaser
A fantastic generic name for this wonderful burst of colour Keith, who cares about the Latin name.
