Perfect choice and blend of textures here and, if there are any imperfections in Miss Gentian , I cannot see them !

Somehow your flowers always look so exotic. Such gorgeous color in this one...so simple and so sweet!

Beautifully framed and textured. Blue flowers are more scarce and this is a treat!

It looks perfect to me. These rounded shapes of the blossoms are charming.
Beautiful fresh color as usual, Anita.

Very beautiful detailed colors, love the texture too!
Thanks for your comment, yes, we did fine through Irene -- too much rain though and a 6 hour power outage, how about you?

I think this is very well balanced. Asymmetry can be just as interesting. Love the blue!
