Love the lighting reflected in your pretty photo. So nice to see while we are in the throes of winter here. Thank You!

Really liking this banner, Carole. Given my current snow-climate perspective, they are like happy pink snow angels bursting forth. And with pod, I applaud the fine touch of the light. Fine job. I tip my hat to you.

@Fleur569, @pod, @Whitebeard; thanks for your messages; nice to read. I enjoyed making the banner. The Pink Wax Flower is super to find flowering in September in this particular coastal reserve; on very white sandy soil.

This is the location; let's go find the Pink Wax Flowers

Also for the added link you've included which I'll go read after this. Have been meaning to get back to database to add information there to round it all off. Smitten by the Pink Wax Flower; can't you tell?

Beautiful banner Carole!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
