Oh,yes, this is cool! Where did you find this layered field of flowers, Cora? #2963402

Cora Miller level-classic June 28, 2006

Thank you for the encouragement, Ken. We'll have to wait and see. So far not one that another member has predicted has even made it to the finals. Perhaps this will be the one to break the cycle. :)

Thanks, Brenda. This field of tulips was at the city park in Holland, MI and the little girl showed up dressed in her Dutch outfit and paraded through the field pausing just long enough for me to grab this shot. :) Glad you enjoyed it. #2963697
