Looking forward to summer

By Term
Taken last year during a long weekend in the Peak District with my girlfriend. This lovely flower was part of Chatsworth gardens, which was a lovely day out.

It was interesting whilst looking through old images seeing the stark contrast of the snow outside, when compared to the warm colours of the images taken during summer. Therefore I thought I'd upload what I considered to be the best example. Its a bit different to my usual upload so all comments greatly appreciated.

Like the details and colours in this - as you say it certainly contrast with the weather outside at the moment.
