For PG101 Purple Theme. Still sickly in our house, but went to the doctor - so hopefully on the mend! In the meantime, a cheery flower to lift the spirits! Happy Theme Day and Happy Wednesday everyone!

This goes beyond your usual floral image. Michelle, I love how the flower fills most but not all the frame with it's beautiful purples bathed in a clean light and the sharpness of the main pedals and then those streaks of fire accented in white as if the flower was leaving a launch pad. Certified Art!
