Isn't this Lathyrus? My grandfather used to grow them in his garden in all sorts of colors ...........
Great composition and intense colors!

@Ellebelle: Oh, Sweet Pea! Yes. I don't know why I didn't recognize them. My mother grew them, but I'm unable to do so. Thanks!

Beautifully diagonal composition. I love how the background glow seems to envelop the flowers, highlighting further their delicate beauty. Wonderfully textured.

The intense blending really adds to the punch and character of these flower images - I prefer it to the forensic catalog view that others go for - but I suppose there is room for both.

@Ronnie 2¢: Thanks, Ronnie. I find myself pushing the processing more and more--making the colors and effects more intense. I always appreciate your thoughtful comments.

Another wonderful piece of work. I like the little tendril curling around the stem.

It looks like a 'pea' of some sort! Very pretty and love that green, slightly moody background which lends extra oomph. Nice work, anita!
