Happy birthday Carol. I thought I would give you this unusual gift - a flower from our Delicious Monster plant. The first time it flowers this year and it has been standing in our garden for 12 years !!
A huge thank you to Myra and David for their UA on my Daisy burst image as well as to everyone who voted and commented. I am still very busy but will look in every once in a while Smile
Have a super day !
