I didn't know what was making that criss-cross pattern behind this delightful bloom, Monnie. I thought maybe it was other stems. But whatever it turned out to be, your dof and framing made it a lovely background addition here. #10274235

Lovely flower capture, Monnie! Beautiful soft lighting and delicate color - and what a good idea about the mesh - I bet it saves a lot of flowers! Anyway, makes for a very interesting background! #10276243

Many of the dahlias in the Mill Creek Park garden this year are supported by white mesh - they're quite tall, and the heavy rains can knock them down in a flash. It's Monday again (boo hiss) - hope it's a good day for everyone!
