Happy birthday, Judy! I know you like flowers, and I also know you were at Linda's house awhile back and shooting some flowers. I was fortunate to shoot this one from her deck, just a few weeks later!. I hope you have a fantastic day!

Linda, thanks for letting me come over for a couple of hours when I visited family in Atlanta. And thanks for lessons in flower photography. One day, I'll be like Dennis!

And Cathy, thanks for stopping by Linda's house to say "hello!" It was fun just relaxing and swapping stories!
