Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much Ayush! I was trying to make it a little different from the usual!
There's something about the bluebells of England, Elizabeth. I'll never forget them!

Wonderful flowers and I love the quotation of Georgia O'Keefe!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Philine! Georgia lives on... Frank and I have just visited the Georgia O'Keefe museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Part of the museum was dedicated to her paintings from Hawaii- and they featured Ansel Adams Hawaiian images as well. It was a remarkable exhibit! smile
very pleasant light
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Chantal!

So perfect - were they playing a tune?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'm sure they were... some love song as Frank and I strolled by, no doubt! smile
Dappled light, all is well with the world.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile So true!
Georgia knew what she was talking about!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: She did - on a number of subjects!
Going by Ginnie's comment would I be right in assuming you don't get Bluebells in the USA.?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: We do - but they are different than these. Quite lovely no matter where they are!
Spring seems so long ago, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It does... but the summer has been lovely- and Autumn is creeping in... smile
