**Carnation skies**

By dianah
A single, yellow carnation manipulated in the early hours of the morning, one sleepless night ! Smile
This is for my dear mum who passed away on the 18th February . She loved golden skies so I really hope she is somewhere warm and out of pain now.
I cannot thank you all enough for the comments and mails that I have received, they have all helped enormously. I am on my way back here but there are still so many sad jobs that have to be done so forgive me if it takes a few days to get to you.
The sun is shining here, I do hope that it reaches you too. Smile

First thought - one of those worm holes that the star ship Enterprize used to travel through...............which is probably quite appropriate when you consider golden skies and a journey. I can imagine travelling through the golden light. Beautiful manipulation Di. So very sorry about the death of your Mum. I know how many things have to be sorted too. So take care of yourself as well as her things- I'm sure she would want that.
