    How pretty. I’ve never seen a pink and yellow one (ours are purple and white). Nor one that hangs down. I love it.

      There is a widow up the street that lives in a stone house. Her property spans the entire block on one side. The back side of her land is a small nature preserve. She has all kinds of stuff, most of which is fenced in. The house sits up on a small hill and the front yard always has things to photograph. She plants the purple ones, too.

      We have the same house number. We frequently get her packages.

          Most likely. Her husband was a pilot before he passed. They were well-to-do.

    He looks like he is drooping or bowing.

      I think the flower head is a tad heavy.

              Do you see the others in the background? I guess it is part of the design.

                No…I just paid attention to that one. People tell me all of the time…Max I waved at you while you were in your car…you didn’t wave back! Max did you see that Trooper? I pay no attention to other things.

                  LOL! Actually, I’ve been guilty of the same. We have that “focus.” I think that is what makes us good a being computer geeks. My ex-Marine used to call me “nuts & bolts” or “wrapped around the axle.” LOL! Attention to detail can drown out the background stuff. I only pay attention to my pictures because I took them.
