  15. Hi Denise! I somehow lost track of you :( I know, I should have kept a closer eye on my reading list!!

  18. I didn't know the cone flower was called double delight too? I have some, but known it as Double-Decker. I have a double delight rose, it is known for this name because of the fabulous fragrance. Good to know. :-)

  20. I like the vivid colors in your photos. I especially like how the petal in your top picture is slightly folded back in one spot. That is great that your lens picks up such details. :)

  26. Hi again, Denise. Thanks for both your comments. I know about not getting around as much as we would like, I certainly don't either, but I'm pleased you enjoy what you find on my blog. :-) Unfortunately, on this job I am in Romania without my honey; it's been our longest period of separation in 26 years, so while being here and the work I do are wonderful, I will be happy to go home in a few weeks. Thanks again.
