    Laurel

    This is a tiny little flower on a variegated laurel bush in my front garden. I didn't realise it had flowers until I went bug hunting.

    Re: Laurel

    Another great one, it looks like the petals are edged with frost.

    It's so small I'd never noticed it until I was searching for bugs. I think the middle looks like candy.

    Re: Laurel

    That's a really pretty image. I wonder if you can brighten it a little to really make it pop?

    Re: Laurel

    Popping sounds good. I might try to get another photo first as the bottom petal going oof is a bit distracting.

    I've just been outside, but this is what I found.

    So I have tried brightening the red of the original photo.

    I like the brightened image Bob. I too didn't know that laurels have flowers, they are really pretty, the hair on them does make it look frosty.

    Re: Laurel

    The last image edit is better - these laurels will attract hoverflys too, so keep an eye out as the weather warms up Bob.

    Paul.
