These are one of my VERY favourite flowers, too!! I was actually fortunate enough to have them feature in my bridal bouquet (nearly 37 years ago now!)!! :o)

BP's resident Mr Flowers, Stan Contrades, will have to watch his back now that you have started photographing AND producing such BEAUTIFUL images as this one, Robyn!! ;o) Keep up the GREAT work, and have a LOVELY evening!! :o) #2279281
