@Maramy: Thank you!
Several things just rush through my mind as I view this image -- I'll start with "WOW." Somehow you have made this image nearly glow. The lighting perhaps? And, even though the image is very clear and sharp it maintains a lovely softness with vibrant but subtle color. Do you STILL have such perfect blossoms in your garden?
