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.
