Cool! Thanks for the votes :)
Went back today and they were all spent :(

After the first day, I held steady until the end; the last day I went from a 6.3731 to a 6.4265 and then dropped back slowly to my final 6.4085. No wild ride for this one.

I shot it at the local botanical gardens in the new conservatory - had lots of orchid shots after my visit, but when I saw how many there were in the challenge, I was glad to have opted for this. For processing it's a hand held 7 shot focus stack though with the aperture I could just as well have used the best of the images and called it quits LOL The processing was very standard with a touch of Nik glamour at the end.

Used to have a hedge of 50m of plumbago. They grow in the wild here.

You made it extremely pretty.
