Hola Josep I
Me encanta el lila de los moros,(en francés) que las flores en un manojo y el tono de días soleados.
el color y la forma son muy trabajadas, y la imagen muestra claramente
Muchas gracias y bravo.

Hallo Josep
Thanks for sharing this beautiful flower with its delicate features and colours. It surely is a beauty! I very much like the centralized composition and the angle in which you have captured it. I also like the blurred leaf in the background. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
