20 October (Part 2) - A big Occasion. Fame at last

Occasions OccasionsThis is a day I didn’t think I would see, the long awaited addition of a flower motif to the Wilton Road florist’s shop facia.

And why is that so important to me? Because it is my small contribution to the Wilton Road regeneration scheme. I took the picture.

It was a real flower, a Gerbera I was told, and we took some care in selecting a near perfect specimen that would stand the scrutiny of the macro lens. We found that at that magnification there is no perfect specimen, not that it really matters, the plastic replica shows none of the detail (Photo 2), but it is the real thing right down to the petal which had a blackened tip left in to make it look more authentic - possibly.

The sticking out sign was reflecting sunlight over the adjacent three flowers but I am being picky.

No charge but discounted birthday cards for life perhaps?

A good job Bexley Council didn’t know about my involvement, they may have withheld payment for its manufacture and installation.
