It's now been two years and thirty days since I started my blog. It was a Mother's Day present from my daughter, and one of the nicest gifts I have ever received, and one that continues to give me pleasure. She helped me set it up, and even chose the header photograph, one she already had in her possession. I have kept the same header all this time for sentimental reasons, but now think it's about time I changed it every so often,:)) especially since I feel my photography has improved a little. You still won't always see sharp images, but I hope you will see beauty.
