• I love this new flower bud sticking out its head in the centre!

Cape leadwort - Blousyselbos

Newer Older

They grow in my garden and they flower right through the year. I was somewhat surprised at the outcome of this photo and with my limited knowledge of photography, I liked this one ... and still do!! To be honest, I think this is one of the best flower photos I have ever taken. If I am the only one to think so ... I enjoyed the pleasure of it!
I dedicate this photo to my dear friend Corneliq who takes much more artistic flower photos but who I am sure, will like this shot.
Please see the note!
