Who Knew? Without a macro lens, I've only ever noticed Alyssum in drifts of white or purple ground cover.

So beautiful! The tones are perfect and I like how the white flowers are making a circle with the as-yet-unopened flower in the middle. Exquisite, Dulcie!

@Sarah: Oh, thankyou, thankyou! One day soon I will take a break from flowers, but probably not for a while...just got a macro lens. Whoopee. Now I can be a Big-Girl photographer! ;-)

I've had a chance to view your series of flower images now that I've returned from my trip. They're really nice and I love the rich colors you've captured. Excellent!
