The sun was lighting up the rich plum colours of one of the hellebores in our garden this afternoon. I rather like the two colour effect on the petals - the colour produced by light shining through the petals and that when it shines on the petals.

I hope you had a great weekend (and as I type it's not over yet)!


EDIT - I have corrected the dreadful typos - apologies! M
