A beautiful plant that makes a fine subject. Love the rich colors. The processing addition adds to the charm of the shot. Well done.

This is very nice, Anita! Yes, it is that gray season - as I look out my window that is all I see. Maybe I can get my sweetie to go up on the roof today and cut some of that holly that is hanging over the rooftop. For some reason, there are no berries within reach of the ground this year!

This has a wonderful warmth about it . . although the colors remain true, they have a homely honesty about them which sits so easy on the mind.

This has a nice old feel to it, like an Old Masters' still life painting. Wonderful work, Anita!
