~ A flower with pop~
This flower is in my rock garden. I took it looking up and was going to crop the house out, but decided to leave it after working on it. I took it in the afternoon, with my digital. I used adobe to give it alittle pop...hence the pretty colors in the building. The flower remained the same color as it was...Just alittle color for everyone today! Have a great day!
