    1. Thanks Judy :-)) I really liked the play of shadow and light on this flower. It's position makes me think it prefers not to be in constant direct sunlight.

  8. That's some perfect clematis you've got there. I wish there had been a bit of light on the center frilly part as well as the petals, as the eye is drawn to the lighter areas. But it's so beautifully sharp.

    1. Thanks Sara :-)) Unfortunately none of the half dozen or so blooms had the sunlight falling on the central part of the flower.
