I am hoping this is an April Fools joke Joe!If not...come on over and have a look at my photos on Country Garden Dreaming from last year's Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. Scroll to the bottom of the post and click on the pink 'here'. I think you will enjoy the features on that post :)http://collageoflife-henrqs.blogspot.com/2011/04/country-garden-dreaming.htmlBest wishesJeanne
Oh, Jeanne. It's a joke alright! But I wish it was an April Fool's joke. Not sure how long it will keep this up today but, so far, the force is still with us; electrical, that is.I made that virtual leap to Hampton Court, via country-garden-dreaming, and spent the last several minutes enjoying all that flower power and those luscious images that are your trademark. My favorite had to be the couple stretched out on the lawn in their bare feet. Oh, to see green grass again!--Joe
This was the poem on Garrison Keillor's page this morning. It fits Joe's photo all too well. Sigh...
