Hi EG and thanks for your visit. I've been a lazy blogger lately due to feeling still sad about my loss. Still I'm slowly getting back to it and have now been skimming through your lovely photos and then had to have another look too. They are all great but this one is a masterpiece above all others. It really is amazing, my friend.
