@Ludovic Roudet: Thank you so much! I appreciate your visit and comment.

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

I cannot better Ludovic's words here - although the ghost companion may provoke a debate about the background twin again. Have a safe trip.

Brenda from Canton, United States

There is a real feeling of yearning as the blossom reaches upward and out of the frame, creating a beautiful tension. As always, spot on focus and amazing background full of soft color.
