A lovely world to get lost in...
Bill Phillips: It would be a sorry world without flowers

You need a sex-worker in the middle of this bloom, Bill...then it would be better than just "Very Good"!

[Hint...I carry a pocket full of assorted plastic sex-workers whenever I walk around with my camera and a macro lens...just bury one nose-first into the business part of the bloom and no-one will ever know its not real, maaaaate.]

Bill Phillips: But...but...that would be cheating grin
How pretty- with the edges of the petals being a darker shade of purple!
Bill Phillips: It is rather splendid

Ray's has been obsessed with one theme again today - I like the bud looking like a peony almost more than the opened flower in the centre that looks, sorry, a bit plastic -but you are an honest person and would never fool us like Ray confessed to do - you seem to be obsessed with flowers now, too, and I think we have to change your name into flowerpower or so... In any case such a colourful flower- picture does well to eyes and soul on this very grey- rainy- windy sundaymorning!
Bill Phillips: Ray is very close to nature Philine. Plastic!! Never!! I take lots of flower pictures so i thought I would run them at the weekends. It is a lovely day here for a change!
I love the dark toning a lot, makes it somehow warmer
Bill Phillips: Makes the flower stand out too

That would be the day after my birthday

This series is becoming tedious
Bill Phillips: And wild parsnip is exciting?
I can't wait for the next 943!
Bill Phillips: At a rough calculation doing them at the weekends should take about nine years
That's a nice flower Bill.
Bill Phillips: Isn't it just smile

Looks like a cosmos - one of my favourite flowers, and purple - my favourite colour.
Bill Phillips: I am hopeless at remembering flower names but I agree it is a lovely flower
Is this a type of cosmo? Pretty whatever it is?
Bill Phillips: Debb said it is so i guess it must be. I haven't a clue but it is a lovely colour
Excellent photo!
Bill Phillips: Thank you very much for your kind comment
nice detail and colour--nicely isolated.
Bill Phillips: Thanks, it does stand out quite well smile
