"Three's A Lovely Crowd" (3-28-16 013v2) is from the newest batch of pix I've taken in our exploding rose garden. This color combo is simply delicious and may be my sole reason for posting it. Then again, I also like how little clean up I had to do of the background. Any pix I take in that garden usually require a lot of patient/boring clean up. Largely due to the distracting, vari-colored mulch that invariably peeks through foliage and between flowers in the background in some way. But also since the garden tends not to be, shall I say, overly manicured. I hasten to add I like it's tendency to a certain wildness. It just makes for messy pix, I'm afraid. And even when I use my walking stick to hold obstructions away or move a particularly gorgeous blossom into a better position, I'm almost always left painting stuff out. Or, sadly, scrapping pix I'd had high hopes for. (Though I don't delete readily, as I have learned over the years that later on my taste and skills will have changed. And I'm then sometimes able to "reclaim" a pic I might have been tempted to scrap on first sight.)
