How cool is that Mary to get the color of grass to be a backup to your flowers. I always call these kind of flower trumpet flowers as that is the shape they take. The color contrast works really well and the lighting and especially the details are a standout. Gorgeous looking floral my dear friend. You take care, be safe. #11412592
