When I go to your profile I know I’m going to see some beauties. I believe you could take your portfolio to a gardening magazine or send a few of them some of your best pics and you just might get one published!!! I truly believe that would happen. Great work!!!

Is this quite a large red robin Ian? I have one but don't think it will get flowers as I keep it cut back🤔
