I took a break from the challenges for a while but I have restructured myself a bit and I hope to do the odd challenge now and then. This one is for LENSDAY and the theme is GROWTH. I photographed this fennel bud this afternoon and thought it would make a good candidate for the theme. I needed no excuses to photograph it! I  love the beautiful structure of fennel and these nest-like balls that some how open up into the white flowers that seem to be bobbing in sections and on roadsides everywhere at the moment. One of the better spring/ summer time flowers in my mind even if its technically a weed!
