That is a beautiful banner Fleur!

NICE! Lovey dubby
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Breathtaking! How did you find that spot, I'm assuming, your garden? That angle. The light! Can you have this framed and send it to me? Hilarious! Thumbs up Lovely. Just cleared my head as to what is important in life.
Its easy for me to believe in miracles when science can't explain why a blade of grass has its shape and that is just one plant and one attribute.
