A Single Flower…… Cees Fun Foto Challenge


The first of our Day Lilies flowered today….. a rather dull day, so they helped add some brightness to a dark corner of the garden.

So as Cee has nominated a Single Flower as the subject for this weeks Fun Foto Challenge I thought why not recognise what I hope will be the first of many more Lilies.

New life in the garden, a little hope in a strange world…so

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

Cees Fun Foto Challenge…Soft and Pastel Colours


Rhododendrons are usually big and blousy oozing with bold colours….

But when they are more restrained their soft pastel colours just seem to have that added sparkle… a touch of class!


Just my suggestions for this weeks Cees Fun Foto Challenge – Soft & Pastel Colours…
