Good morning...
Thank you so much for the great response to my Prince Charming, much appreciated. Also a big thanks to Fred (Fred263), Lynette (Lynniesefforts), Isabel (Chinga) and Peter (Handlerstudio) for awarding me their User awards so chuffed.
I went back to the park yesterday morning to photograph the water lilies...they are so pretty, a soft mauve/blue.
Have a great day
Colleen
