You must be doing the right thing food-wise for this pretty bloom. Never could get that blue in mine. The color and comp really are nice, and cool on a hot day. Evil drought.

Very pretty! I like how just the center petals are sharp, and of course that blue is fabulous! HTD, Nikki!

It is a nice one, Nikki, and of a flower subject I think is extremely difficult to photograph well. Congratulations.
