Today we drive to Essex to Margarite's Thanksgiving.
Having found cancer in her bowel, liver and lungs 15 months ago, she has had major operations to remove them and is now in respite. It was wonderful to see how well she was at Christmas.
We are all aware that the cancers are going to come back, but she has chosen this time to invite her friends and family to give thanks for these successful operations and for a period of feeling well.
The first of these images was of cool light and now we come to the warmth of the middle of the day.
I made three and I hope not to use the third for some time.
Helen

Many thanks to Bill for his User Award yesterday which I was thrilled to receive
Keep safe over the weekend with the expected deterioration in the weather

Wow...Margarite's come through the wars well, Helen, and I too hope your third image doesn't appear anytime soon. This is a beautiful thing you've done. Not just the remarkable beauty of this image but what it represents.

Rock on, Margarite Wink

Thanks everyone for your votes and comments - we are just back from Essex - no snow or ice but warnings that there will be snow tomorrow - I think they are trying to discourage people from coming out on the M1/M6 tomorrow unless they have to.
Wonderful service and time with the family, friends and our grandchildren.
