I noticed mine in bud again today and was just thinking about whether to cut one to bring in or attempt an outdoors shot!

The straight leaves and curved flower work well together, and it's very nicely presented.

Lovely shapes Allie, but if those three spiky leaves had a bit stronger colour, as in yesterdays, it would work better for me against that background.

G'Mornin' Allie,
A Stunner of a shot, Luv the softness of the greens, Beautifully portrayed!

Cheers and hope you're having a wonderful Sunday so far,

Thanks all for your comments. Yes, Eric, I agree about the colour - the light was a little stronger on this shot, but perhaps I could have helped the greens along a little in PS Smile

How incredibly graceful and simple. I think this is first class!
Thanks for pointing out that little blue patch on the fox glove...didn't even notice it until you mentioned it, and you are absolutely right.
