    Default BLC. Golden Tang

    My first blooms on this little Blc. Golden Tang. Found her in a bag at a big box store last year. The blooms are only 3" across and no fragrance as of yet.
    Enjoy!

    Don't know why the pic turned out so grainy. All I can figure out is that I must of applied some sort of filter when I was messing with the controls on the back of the camera to turn off the flash. Also the background is really black and here it looks blue. Any ideas from you fotog buffs out there? Goiing to try again tomorrow in daylight to see if I can do a better job.

    It was the light exposure. More light will give you a better contrast in color - as long as you don't over expose it. The bloom is very nice. I look forward to your updated photo.

    Here is the updated foto, taken outdoors, big difference in color and texture. You can just about see the pink blush on the lateral petals on the new bud starting to open. Daylight makes all the difference.

    Beautiful bloom. That pink blush looks so pretty on the pale green.
