Godetia Zoom

By mandarinkay
a very quick upload , as my little grandson Karl was rushed into hospital yesterday, and ended up with having surgery last night for appendicitis! My son and myself have spent most of the time in the hospital with him tho I did come home very late last night and had a few hrs break, while my son stayed with him all night. not long got back, and am soooo tired! So no time to spend on here ... but wanted to do just a quick upload having taken on board what Kaybee and Janet said about feathering more. I hope that I have done better this time.... always open to constructive crit ... I welcome it, and love to have advice, so please feel free. Please forgive me not getting round to you all at the moment, more important things going on at present but will catch up soon. Many MANY thanks for the fantastic response on my tranquility, I was overwhelmed! Take care all,
