Thanks, Johanna! And everyone for the thumbs. Smiling
That was in July, and bloomed several times over at least a month.
I couldn't find the original, but here it is in a slideshow I hope
you will enjoy.

Thank you, my friends! Smiling
My camera isn't razor sharp, so that lends to the pastel effect.
Sorry I couldn't find the original used for the banner, but
here is the same lily, before & after adding an artistic effect in Paint.net.
(though I don't use it for banners ;)

It's just moving pixels around, and subjective.

Beautiful banner Cal!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
