The theme for this weeks WordPress Photo Challenge is Details: ‘try to look past the big picture and take a more intimate approach. Zoom in on details in unexpected places …’

Easily overlooked details are already one of the mainstays of Beyond the Window Box so it was tempting to return to some of my past favourites.  Instead I chose the dingiest plant in our small garden, looked closer and found it was worth a second glance.

I’ve also added the Details tag to some recent and older posts on this theme.  Click on the tag below or here to explore.
