Hope you like it. I was able to pick a perfect flower but I like this one since it has those natural scratches...

Good luck to all...

Oh dear, I think I am getting rather forgetful in my old age. Please forgive me! I read it as being spring for some odd reason. I did wonder why everyone was submitting flowers and thought I would do something different :lol:

I have resubmitted another pic from the same collection I took around the grounds of the spring flowers :D

Hello to all, sorry I forgot the part of the nickname on the image file, I have changed the filename to elektric.jpg at the same path, please let me know if I have to resubmit it, since I am not able to edit my previous entry.

I hope SB can sleep well now, he looks kind of upset because of this. Relax dude! I am not stupid, I'm just not as perfect as you are. :)

Regards to all.

Thanks guys. I've fixed up your entries so it reflects your nickname. Try to always keep your image name as your nickname. The reason we ask you guys to do this is so when we're hosting your images, we don't lose track of which image belongs to who.
