Anyway, with the advent of the warmer weather I have been inspired to get out into the garden and take a few walks to exercise my new knee-joint. This particular shot of a bunch of blue lillies, was a gift to my wife from our sons step daughter.
It is not a colour we had seen before, and were really taken with them. I just had to capture them for posterity. A later search on Google produced lots of plants called "blue lilies" but none looked quite the same as this bunch until I found this site.
They were all in bud when they arrived but are now opening and hopefully I might get an even better shot in a couple of days time. I shall watch them carefully.
Lovely colour in these blooms, the red marks on the leaves are of course pollen deposited on the petals prior to being fully open.
A different bloom showing a better positioning of the stamens.
Anyway, I have found my camera again and hopefully will be posting more shots in the near future.
