Award Shortlist   


By Hermanus
Swallows are gracing our skies and breeding before the return to the Northern hemisphere Smile
V2 - sitting pretty on her nest
Thanx so much to Simon, Dave, Chrissie, Trev, Pam, Billy and Jenn for awarding my Agapanthus with their User Awards - I really do appreciate it a lot !! A big thanx also to all who took the time to comment and vote Smile
This is just a quick upload while I am waiting for the 'crowd ' to wake up! We have a friend visiting from France so there is a lot of catching up and showing around taking place here.
Thanx to all who wished me for Christmas - I trust all my EPZ friends will enjoy a meaningful festive season with family and friends.
