    • The flowers on my plants are much paler when they first open but take on a peachy tinge by the evening in strong sunlight. I have looked at some photos on the net today and they seem to vary between almost white and pale apricot!

    • Glad you like them. Do you think the dark ring round each raindrop makes the photos look more like paintings? I looked at them again after I read your comment and they do have a completely different feel to the photos taken when the flowers were dry. I think Georgia O’Keefe produced some fascinating paintings of flower centres; I was always rather disturbed by her picture of the horse’s skull adorned by white roses though.

    • I’ve only been blogging for just over 4 months and I’m still learning how to get the best out of wordpress. I may add more widgets and put a personal photo in the blog header but the great bonus to running your own blog is that you can take as long as you like to perfect the layout.
