Nature has such wonders to explore if we just take time to stop and smell the roses. Nice read, Christine. Green Grin! Thumbs up

They are, Vic ... the last of them. They were mostly green when I pulled them. I was trying to find when the shot was taken but can't at the moment. I think around the first of November.

Christine --- my sentiments exactly! Thank you. Especially since I didn't have to do the typing. Whistling Hilarious!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
