Good day to you all at ePz

Thank you for taking the time out to view, comment and vote on my upload yesterday.

Todays image showing the dead and dying Poppy seed heads was captured in the garden a little while ago. I was particularly attracted to the varying tones and textures.

I hope that you have a great day whatever you get up to. For me I am undertaking an interview with Julie for South East News prior to her jump on Friday.

Regards Nathan GrinGrinGrin
