That's a wonderful composition, Marilyn! Both the flower and the shingles are very beautiful! Greetings, Anne

Thank you, Anne and Jacques, and Jacques, for the star.

I love this old-fashioned flower, and it seemed so appropriate growing beside this old-fashioned wood shingle roof!

Very pleasant and comfortable is the composition!

Greetings, Vyacheslav

Very nice,Marilyn,the flower seems growing from the roof.Cheers,Daniela

I was posting in the NPC with the number 23 when I saw your post.I changed to 24.We made it at the same time!

Marilyn Whiteley on August 2, 2008

Thanks for adjusting the number, Daniela. Funny--I particularly like the number 24 so I was thinking about waiting a bit before doing the entry! (No, I'm not superstitious; I just happen to like some numbers better than others! Weird, I know.) So enjoy being #24!

I'm glad you like the photo. The roof has a very gentle slope and comes down low. I think it's over an old "lean-to" addition to the original 19th century store. Cheers, Marilyn

I'm sorry I ignored you, Vyacheslav, when I replied to Daniela. I appreciate your comment.

Greetings, Marilyn

Marilyn Whiteley,la tazza già ha il bel flôres e fino a che il suolo dovrebbe essere bello...

Thank you, Hank and Isi.

I thought I had taken enough hollyhock photos last summer. It was the textures that drew me to take yet another.

Very fine! Composition & Colours!!!

I'm glad you like it. Today I bought some seeds from this set of flowers to give to a friend, but I don't think she has a nice shingled roof like that.
