Patterns, geometry, contrasting textures and colours delight me, Marilyn. Another special.

Warmest regards,

Many thanks, Mike, Magdalena, Ibolya, and Ian, for your words which lift up my spirits much as this yucca did!

I'm sorry to be spending so little time looking at your photos, but I'm now more than 2/3rds of the way through the first draft of the book I'm writing, and I need to keep going. Also two weeks ago today (while on this trip to Arizona and New Mexico) I had eye surgery for a detached retina. That makes it a bit harder to do careful photo editing! But I will return!

Again thanks, Marilyn

Nicely done, Marilyn.

Thanks, Hank. Of course the more natural parts of the botanical garden were the real attraction, but I just had to see what I could do with this!
