  3. Beautiful image with such lovely golden tones! I enjoyed the story also!

  4. Brenda, I love this image for its own sake: It’s beautiful and makes me wish I could sit there in the peace and warmth of that dappled sunlight. Lisa’s story provides the frosting on the cake!

I greatly appreciate your comments!
