  4. Hey … there you are … nice to see ‘you’ in my reader. Nice shots … both are especially sharp at point-of-focus. Pretty. D

      • ‘ENJOYING’ the hot weather! I hope you were being sarcastic! I totally hate this humid stuff! Looking forward to January … OMG, did I really say that? I must be tired! D

        • Ha ha! Yes, I was being sarcastic. I figured you weren’t a big fan of the heat and humidity. I seem to be the only one who ever likes it around here. 🙂

  10. That’s such a glorious colour (and it makes me think it would taste like a sweet we had when I was little called a fizzbomb). Lovely shots.
