Pink Enough?

Cee’s theme for her CMMC challenge this week is ‘pink’. Will this do?

Wild Purple

These unusual purple flowers were in a seed mix we sowed in a raised bed a couple of years ago.

White Orchids

There is something serene about these white orchids, especially when set against a black background.

A Single Flower

Cee’s Fun Challenge for this week wants images of a single flower. This was one that emerged from a scattering of mixed wild flowers that we sowed in our garden last year.

52 Week Smartphone Challenge: 11 – Fill The Frame

For week 11 of the Smartphone Challenge hosted by Khürt, we’re invited to fill the frame with a single colour.
