Ooh I got a stripy one! Last of the Crocuses, and they’ve all been a nice surprise...as I’d completely forgotten I’d planted a mixed bag 🙈 Have a mellow Monday flowers 🌸 #crocus

I will,but it is on my computer. I take most photos with 📷 not phone. I can't get close to flowers from scooter have to use long lens. Anyway I have to go to my desk top to transfer photos to phone. Right now not up much. I have so many photos to download to phone. Some to share gtags some to share family and other friends.🤗 If I don't share photos that are not as good as other people's photos of same subject, I would not post most of my photos. Gtags has many great photographers.🤗
