Steven is back to work full time today - though we had a session this morning at the cardio rehab clinic - what an eye opener that was! Very informative and helpful.

Willow pup has been as good as gold today - all is quiet - so I had a little play. Hadn't actually taken a photograph apart from the pup for weeks as not been able to really - then noticed these wilting tulips in the kitchen window (I bet you don't keep such tatty flowers on your window sills!) --- anyway - here is a little offering to let you know I am still alive and kicking - though possibly as wilted as the tulipsWink Sorry I have missed so many images - but it has been impossible to even look on site most days - and I still haven't bought a Christmas present yet - it is gonna be a mad rush - eventually................

I hope all is well with you all xxxxxxxxx

They may be wilting, Sue, but you have turned them into a work of art, a very beautiful manipulation. Carol

Although well past their sell by date you have managed to present them as a real work of art and added your own brand of freshness to this image, Sue.
Good news on the home front too.......just sets you up for Christmas.

Wonderful treatment of these 'queens' of the flower world. They deserve a good send off, and you have given them the best. Can I come round when it suits and have the same treatment ? Wink Glad to hear the news. Smile

Barry, if you mean can you come round, be shoved in a jug of cold water on the kitchen window sill and then have your petals ripped off so I can photograph you, any time......you are very welcome indeed! Wink

Just gorgeous. Perhaps I shall now be encouraged to hang onto cut flowers a bit longer, having seen these, though I fear I lack the knowledge and talent to make such a beautiful image from them. So very pleased to read that Steven has made such a fine recovery. Seems you have all the ingredients for a joyous Christmas and New Year, once you get those pressies sorted!

I'll be glad when all the hassle is over and I'm on my way up to Scotland for the Christmas period! Wink

Awards are a tricky thing...because we all have people we visit more than others......and to be honest I have not had the time...and when I checked backed....you have had a few of late so I was not going to give this one an award....but that is wrong because it judges the past and not what I see...


For me this is a romeo/juliet moment..or a aftermath in 91/2 weeks...it just rocks my boat so it got the award and it ranks in your best in my mind....would grace any cosy little hotel room wall !
