You are blending two worlds: Nature, through the nursing of plants in your garden; technology, through photographing flowers. I guess that will give you a sense of well-being.

WOW! My first thought was how beautifully ORANGE this is...and I remembered the orange popsicles that I used to slurp on as a child. Funny how things can bring back memories.
This is a BEAUTIFUL shot!!

Thanks for sharing the time of day -- I saw in the flower the setting sun. But, my mind (stomach?) also followed that of Observing from Local -- please pass the chocolates! Both reactions are evoked by your ability to capture the richness of the bloom.
