    What a spectacular macro floral, Debbie! The POV really changes everything - nice work! The colors, tones, and ligthing are superb. Congratulations.

Thank you, Michelle and Merna. I can hardly wait for it to be time for the lupines to bloom. I see "small beginnings" of them in my almost barren backyard. This was from a year or so ago. I'm at the point where I'm "re-visiting" older files for editing purposes.

Thanks for stopping by to comment, Liz! I just had a quick tour of your gallery and loved it! The pumpkin headed goddesses really did it for me though. I needed a laugh today at work!

Thank you, Leslie and Louise - I appreciate your stopping by to comment. These are such great flowers and I think they have finally taken hold in my garden so I am anxious for them to show up in another month or so.

Thank you, guys! I love my lupines. They are beginning to come up in the yard and will soon become material for goodness knows how many image files!!

Haven't heard from you in a while, Melissa. What have you been up to. Will go check out your gallery tomorrow.

Laura, again, thank you for your comments and anytime I hear from you it makes me happy! I miss joking in threads and such with you and making up stories to go along with our images. I am RETIRING in 19 working days - at the end of January and then Martin and I are going to Egypt for two weeks of cruising on the Nile and such. I am so excited! When I get back I may have time for another Club. What ones are you currently in??

And to all the rest of you who have commented on this image since I last visited this thread...I apologize for not thanking you for your lovely comments. I get notification for some things but not others so I was not ignoring you all. I appreciate your thoughtful input ~ always.

P.S. 25 years ago Dale and I had wanted to get married on the Nile River. Then changed the dream to the Black Forest in Germany (Rhine River Boat) ten buckled and REALLY just got married at home so all the family could be there. Please have a safe and wonderful trip! :)
