Found it difficult this time, but finally found what I wanted: a delicate rose. Too delicate to hang on to its petals.



I originally planned to enter this:



But as there is already a pet in the thread, decided against it.

If it had been a real pup, I would have done it, but it was more a desperate attempt to get something, anything. A last resort thing, if you like.

The weather has put paid to going outside today, it’s wet and cold (currently 9.2 C) on June 3rd.  Even the heating has come on, the heating never came on in March!!!
So it was a quick nip into the garden, pick a flower and come back inside.

Wimp!  :P

I've just got in from being out since 10:00 and it didn't stop raining once. In fact I've put the heating on to dry out my coat, camera, lenses and camera bag.  :tup:

We had our summer in March this year Mike; no one had their heating on.

Very flowery competition this week. At least mine was shot in situ.
I think we've been lucky here, weatherwise; overcast with occasional sun, and dry. Yesterday, when I took my shot, it was even warm and sunny!

I nearly went for a shot of a single rose petal and then decided upon a bit of feather down caught up in a thistle.
