    You owe yes to visit Hawaii. Everything there is beautiful, touching!
And get ready... With the quality with you made this picture you will have a lot of work in Hawaii...
That beautiful picture, photographer. Beautiful and very well composite.
Perfection in the detail, in the focus, in the light, in the framing.
Receive my congratulations and my desire of "good trip to Hawaii"...
(And we would like to see the pictures that you will do there).

You all are SO extremely kind, your comments have made me feel a lot better on a day of turmoil and craziness! Probably going car shopping today; my sixteen year old Honda may be finally biting the dust :) Please keep me in your thoughts as I go up against the car dealers....

Dianna, thanks so much for your truly insightful and extremely touching comment! I DO consider my floral subjects as gifts, they are very precious to me. I try to allow them to emerge in an inviting way to the viewer so that everyone can enjoy them as I do! Thanks for being such a treasured friend...have a fantastic weekend!
