A moment of utter pleasure and that shines through. Sunlight glinting off the sea, lying back in the grass, silence except for the song of birds. It's good to see you on the site. But be warned, we seem to be busier in retirement than we ever were when working full-time!

Great to see you back here, Di, and I promise that you will love every minute of retirement as we do. Joline's words are so perfect for the occasion.
This is a photograph taken with warmth and understanding as well as great technique. I'm no commentator on pics of flowers, so hope that will do!

A Poem about your picture for you!

Is it alright
If I write
That the colors are bright
As the lips of my bride
In the night...?
That the compo is light
Which I loved at first sight
At first sight...?
Praising words magnified
Comments-clicks multiplied
Our envy-your pride!
