Thanks Roby, I spent about 3 hours with 5 women taking photos of flowers. I told them I was comfortable enough with my masculinty to spend the day with them...I still have some more to go through and hopefully will be able to post some more. Thanks for the visit and the nice comments.

Thanks Terry for the visit and the comments, I appreciate this very much. White's had a whole greenhouse full of these huge Begonias of different varieties and colors. Very cool...

Aha! This is the first of any of us I've seen from that day. Love the individual petal layers and their two toned color! Beautiful!!

Thanks Claudia, I thought 1 or more of you would have posted some shots so I'm waiting anxiously to see what you did. I really liked the color of this one, I have 1 more in my gallery from this day.

Thanks Roger, Bill, and the Judges for stopping by to comment.

Bill, I'm sure you read my response in the forum thread...After Stuart took all those bike photos with the models or was it models with the bikes and then posted the flower pictures, I just had to laugh....So here's my flower....

Hmmmmm, trains and flowers?
