Flowers for thought...

By NDODS    
An upload filled with uncertainty.

Thank you for all your wonderful comments and messages following yesterdays Silly Sunday upload. A special mention goes to lonely_oryx (John), Rolepics (Carole), TrevBattWCC (Trevor), Netta1234 (Netta) and last but not least Lillian for presenting me with their much appreciated User Awards.

The snow is beginning to fall quite softly, maybe an opportunity to get out and about with James and my cameras. But before that I can feel a sausage sandwich coming on.

I hope that you all have a wonderful day ahead≥

Highest regards to you all as always

Sausage sandwich sounds the more attractive alternative if it's snowingWinkWink.
And a lovely floral shot, Nathan, and not an easy one to achieve with such a large bunch of gladioli.
Very well done.
Love the soft subdued lighting.
