  14. The most beautiful little flower Anthony, lucky you who have had flowers around you for so long, but spring has come here too, so now is I'm ready with my camera also. Wonderful springtime.

    I was hoping that you had received packet in the mail now. Is actually over 14 days since I sent it, and so many days/ weeks it may not possibly take?? I understand nothing :(( I wrote the the address on which you sent me mail. You will see there is someone else who enjoys Norwegian chocolate somewhere in between. A little shame if it should come out on the road, had a little thing to your wife there too. Let's hope a little longer!!!

    Here we have lovely Easter day, beautiful walks we have had both the mountains and the sea, but tomorrow it is unfortunately work again.

    Have a nice days you too. Hug from Anne.

  24. What an absolutely stunning capture. I like the broken up background, I think it might be called bokah but I'm not sure!

    I would love to see this blown up hugely, framed with a wide white mat in a shiny black frame.

    Really stunning.

    Thanks for sharing your talents with us.

  28. Ååå now I am so happy so happy, think that the small package arrived in the end. It has been on a trip so long so long, almost half the globe. Jippi :-)
    Hope at least the chocolate fell slightly in taste.

    But you may not think of sending something back, it was not intended and expected. I do not want you to feel like you need to do something in return, this is just nonsense my friend!!

    A lot of hugs from Anne.
