    Brilliant image – love the colours in this – gorgeous!

  • Lol, the orchid is as white as fresh snow (so I’m told, I’ve never seen snow!), hence the name. It’s a beautiful one and has a very lgiht, barely discernable perfume – a rae thing in orchids from that time! Thank you for your gorgeous comment, Margot, As always, I appreciate it.

    Beautiful depth to this Jan.

  • When I saw this effect used on John’s work, I asked him if he would explain it to me. He very kindly did so. This is one of the best results I’ve had from it, so I’m pleased it appeals to you. I appreciate your lovely comment, Rosie.
