starry story

thank you for all your kind comments on my recent flowers and cotswold scenes - i really do get a kick out of every message you leave :)

it's my oldest son's 30th birthday today - he's on honeymoon but we're seeing him at the weekend as they touch base in london for one night between scandinavia and sri lanka - as these young people do

i was out in the garden watering in the mid-evening and liked the light, so i grabbed the velvet 56 which i haven't used for a while. opened it a little wider than usual to get the glow and then added a texture in photoshop for a bit of a whimsical look. this is verbena bampton which has rather dainty flowers which start deep pink and open into pale pink stars
it is a pretty 'canvas' with the popping pink and the criss-cross patterns. Sounds like a full and extended honey moon the newly married couple are having.

I do wonder what a velvet56 is - not a pudding, I'm sure. A lovely result!

Very light and airy- seems appropriate for this flower too. Good shot!
