Very nice image. I had no idea you could scan flowers and not have them look squashed. Could Sheila share with us how she did this?

I asked Sheila Burrow to put her image of bulbs from her garden that she 
laid on her scanner in an amazingly artistic fashion on the wiki. I have 
always loved this image.…
