Why is it labeled a delicacy Ian?

Dear Pam, this is a macro shot of a tiny flower. I don't know its name, but it's such a delicate flower that I just played with a word. Hope I haven't enticed you to think it was edible!

It happens to be my very first macro shot as Margaret bought me an extension tube for my camera for Christmas. I think all our Panoramio friends are giving me permission to add images other than landscapes, so there may be a trickle of macros coming from me, and so there could be more "delacies" to come.

Ian, your creativity of which your photos give evidence are amazing! I love all your pictures, they all tell a story of life, of existences, of dreams or just of beauty.

That kind belong to my favourites! A photo of such beauty, which most people wouldn't bother about nor take the care to tell about it in such a way of love for the little things around us. I look forward to more such delicate beauties of yours. It's a joy to have it in my favourites, thank you!

My dearest greetings, May

Dear May,

I knew I am behind with all the uploads of my friends and favourites, but I didn't realise I was this far behind with my replies to comments. O shame. But thank you very much for your affirmation and your own special sensitivity to others, to beauty, and to the delicate elements of our world.

I have just learnt that the locals call this "Honey Flower".

I guess you may have picked up by now that Margaret and I will be moving to Brisbane in about a month's time, as I have decided to retire from my Principal's role.

So I am pleased that over the last 14 years I have had many opportunities to know the Sydney region in quite some detail, including its history, its natural environment and its flora.

Both of us will be teaching post-graduate and undergraduate programs in Tonga, a semester per year, otherwise living in Brisbane or travelling!

Warmest regards dear friend,

Dear Ian, what a pretty name for this lovely flower!

I wish you and Margaret all the best for your retirement. It's great that you will both take part in a teaching program.

Hopefully we'll see many beautiful photos of your travels. And who knows, maybe you will even visit Switzerland! Don't forget to inform me. :)

My warmest regards to you both,
