Small narrow garden behind a family house with an even smaller fish pond in a village in the middle of Europe. It's a great place to relax.

Thank you very much Natalia. This photo is made directly by my iPhone 6S without any corrections📱. It makes good photos if you have enough light and good luck for good focus. This is the main disadvantage of phone camera that you don’t have full control of focusing. I made usually more shots and then check which one is good. On the other hand big advantage is that it is almost always in my pocket if I see something interesting😉. @grynnat

That's awesome that it's just a phone shot! You have a very good eye then ☺️ For more manual controls when shooting on iPhone, you might want to try Camera+, you can set the focal distance manually, as well as the exposure and ISO equivalence. I use it when my iPhone's default camera isn't doing what I want it to :)

Thanks Javier! I like oleander and its flowers but I’ve never seen as nice flowers as this one in my country plus it’s so big for my small garden. @jasabe
