I have to confess that Chrissy did not grow these but she did buy them. I got home late from a conference last night and was able to just have enough light to get some shots. The first is a straight shot while the second is another of my artistic presentation efforts. All comments welcome. >=))>

Wonderful photos put together Bill. I am really enjoying your “artistic” interpretations. Very nice and thanks for the thoughts.

Bill, I think I like the first one best. I could see this on a Christmas Card for sure.

Bill I too like the first version best. You might push the red and reduce the blue in the leaves a bit to get the leaf color more like in the artistic version. Love how the yellows and greens in the center stand out.
