Say ... I still seem to be on the list -- now I'll have to do something ... ;-)

Since this is sort-of the "preview" or warm-up/headstart on August shots and since I saw this thread "after dark," here's one I took a few days ago ...

What a great start, and I hope many more flowers are going to come our way.....

Remember if one gets some comments to help improve the image, take some time out, and give it a try. If you are having any problems with any of your images, I know that most or all of the people in this side challenge are here for you, and would be ready to help and any time. All you have to do is ask.....

Thanks you for sharing this floral image with us.
Our journey has just begun.....

Mandevilla (sp?) that hangs out on the back porch. Usually we have pink, but this year I found this beautiful red shade, this one seems to be a bit more tame and not quite as wild and windy as the pink ones.
