Thanks Mandy - it's a shame as Newfievnurse says that the photo doesn't show exactly how much they can shimmer. When the sunlight catches these petals it's a gorgeous sight.

You have a nice shimmer on the forward-facing flower...I am impressed you got that in the picture.

Thanks Mamagem - I got a little bit of it but it's far better in reality.
