"Wow what can I possibly say?" I was somewhat gobsmacked as to the response my Lilies received yesterday. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that a bunch of flowers would attract so much attention. Thank you to you all, I real mean that. A further mention goes to Moiral (Moira), Caziwinkles (Carol), Dickspics (Richard), EileenH (Eileen), Tolepics (Carole), Nickonuser (Cliff), Williamsloan (Willie), dmnuynh (Yung), Lillian (Lillian), Myrab (Myra), Brian65 (Brian), GeirgePlatis (George) and last but not least JohnStarkey(John) for presenting me with their User Awards.

Keeping on the theme of flowers and plants here is another piece which I have kept hidden away. It was origibally a piece of work which I was asked to do whilst studying Photoshop at University. In coomprises of seven different layers built up from both graphic and photographic images. I was rather pleased with the outcome I hope you will be also.

I hope that you all have a great day whatever that may bring.

Regards as always and a huge thank you to you all again.
