I've been away for an extra long weekend with family. Although I love the company I do miss my access to blog land and my journal 'stuff''. I did take my sketch book and a fat pencil case, but it is my camera that comes into it's own when I am away from home. I need to down load them and do some editing. I will have plenty of material to keep my flickr pages active. But I am looking forward to getting down to some 'concrete' picture making. Meanwhile here are some echinacea which have had a bit of 'virtual' treatment. Thanks to all those who have commented on my blog so far, it's much appreciated.
