Lavender blue dilly dilly -- gorgeous still life colours all in harmony with the pale lavender against the blue/grey background , and a great choice of glass container with the diamond cut reflecting the colours ! My lavender is still on the plants and too wet to gather ! fav

Beautiful still life. Great lavender; I tried them here once but , probably due to our warm weather, the plants remained small and I finally had to uproot them and discard them.

@sangwann thanks Dione, they grow at a vaery fast rate in our climate, they tend to go a bit leggy / wooden after a few years !

@casablanca Ha, Ha, Casa' , glad to know you are impressed by a bunch of lavender :) ... a bit of a different genre for me !

@phil_howcroft ha ha, I am easily pleased!! Flowers and chocolates and I'm sorted LOL! I actually had to look twice when I first saw it to check I was on your page because I don't think I have ever seen you photograph anything quite in this style before!

@phil_howcroft I FAV shots I feel an emotional connection with. To me, they are the best - simply because of what I feel when I look at them. =)

Instant fav - very unlike your usual style Phil
