My birthday yesterday was a very orange affair. It often is… Matty, my two-and-three-quarter year old grandson presented me with a mass of orange flowers. A friend popped in with a succulant she had grown especially for me and some interesting orange – tipped dried leaves. I have no idea where she found them or what it plant they belong to – perhaps someone will be able to tell me. It is very likely because, last week I wondered if anyone would be able to identify the architectural ruins I had photographed many years ago. BluebellWoods from the UK not only could tell me that it was Cowdrey House but she had visited it only a few months ago!
I chose this close-up to play with and orange-ify. I wanted to give it a more delicate lacy sort of feel.
