Definitely Happy Birthday wishes to Lea!!
And Dulcie, this is just about the most beautiful set-up and portrait of flowers I can remember ever seeing! Your colors and color contrasts are stupendous - including that beautiful tablecloth against these other colors - the lighting with the dark upper background against the beautiful focus job you did, and that wonderful light...all of it is just magical. The water and the blossoms and stems all in repose like that... and that angle is very unique really...most folks do the standiong up and this view here is so much mre romantic, heartfelt and just screaming to be loved...and I love this image very much. This is by far the beast I have seen in a long time if ever!

What is the angle about? I love it...they are the softest necks and go way out when they bloom and then dangle precariously. You have let them rest...what a giving photographer. Color again, what can I say and the contrast to the gorgeous lick of color behind them...you amaze me still, and I know how great you are.
