Thanks so much kckeiko - so glad you like it!! The most wonderful thing is that this beautiful spot by the river is just a few short steps away from my door!! I took it during that 3 hour excursion to the bird sanctuary a couple of weekends ago. One sad thing I noted was that my beautiful old friend I called Sanctuary (a huge willow) had been cut down. I used to park myself under there on particularly warm days with nothing but a book for company. I could not see any signs of disease on the bark of the stump and when it was in full bloom, it always looked perfectly healthy so I am not sure the purpose of cutting it down. I tried to count the rings to see if I could tell how old it was but I kept on losing track… it’s harder than one thinks to put a number on those things!!
