Bright and cheerful - I really like nasturtiums and always make sure I have a little patch of them in my garden. Lovely shot.

A lovely image Val, especially at this time of year. I like the detail and the wonderful colours you have achieved.

Thanks Hawk. There's not much colour in the garden at the moment so I thought I would upload one from last summer.

Lovely to look at anytime, but moreso in mid winter Val, excellent camera work and presentation. Agree with Mike!
