Monochrome Madness 50

I’m a bit late in the day for posting this beautiful rhodo bloom which is a rework from another spring day, and my submission to Monochrome Madness!  I thought the petals were very sensuous and looked like rumpled satin sheets!!

Please visit Leanne Cole and Laura’ Macky’s Monochrome Madness for a wonderful visual treat

The midnight garden

and I wanted a touch of colour as spring is on the way and by my old fence some crocuses have emerged!!

    Beautiful!
    And i’m so jealous of the crocuses, any plant that might be in our garden is still covered by a foot of snow 😦

    Two beautiful shots, Cybele. Sensuous is the perfect adjective for the rhodo, and I love the crocuses emerging into the light!
