Thankyou for your interest in the Spanish modernist museum, but I thought I'd have a break from it and upload something completely different. This was taken at the St. Albans Butterfly World in Hertfordshire. I have changed the background.
Pamela.

I would like to say a big BIG thankyou to Jules for the Guest Editor Award, the first I have ever received, and I am thrilled to bits.
Also, thankyou to Helen for favouring me with her User Award, such a lovely surprise.
