I was playing around in a free online editing program, discovering what can be done to make this daisy more palatable Smile I have been busy helping out at my son's school and will still be doing so during the exams. This afternoon we have to go to Worcester for a cricket match.
Thank you to all who took the time to vote or comment on my Amaryllis images - much appreciated . Have a super day !!!!
