Extremely worthy of photo of the week accolade. Sun on flowers with the shadows in different shades of orange. Wonderful.
That's a beautiful shot of all stages from bud to full bloom.
Thanks folks! I have always loved that photo I took. Sadly, I have to use some of the photos I took in the past few years until I have some time to get out there and take some current pictures! :-) But, I hope to get out there soon and get some fall foliage photos and such!
