Having been away for quite a while, I decided to take some time to post in hopes a few images might make your dog days of summer a little cheerier.
This sudden decision was brought on by one of the Hall of Fame members who reminded me earlier this evening, that just a few words, a smile, a wondering glance can change one`s outlook on a present situation.
This post is dedicated to Pudsy, but please note that the content of the post & affiliated slide shows do not reflect on her, but solely on myself.
The purpose of the dedication is to recognize her as the gentle heart she is, barely concealed under an exterior of truth.
The header, shot with the black background of my hat, also includes some texture shots that I know Andif likes.
On Planet Earth, a few shots of the opened blossom of the "Pinwheel Treasure" from the last post, directly below.
Also on the Planet, a few shots I didn`t know I captured while setting up to shoot through a dual glazed window. The test shots showed the hummingbird, that I had no clue had made an appearance, regardless of my activity barely feet away.
In the main post, a frilly diaphanous blossom showing herself shamelessly, as innocents are wont to do, (with my full support).
The flower is growing in the middle of a garden in the age of innocence.

I`ll try & make time to post more often, but my efforts at that have proven to be fruitless in the past, so I`ll endeavor to use some of the time already allotted to us all, to post again regularly.
Pudsy, you`re a dear.

Welcome back! I'm sure Pudsy will feel very, very honored -- there are so many wonderful shots, I haven't been able to pick a favorite, though the hummingbird shot sure did put a big grin on my face.

Hi Head, hi Andi.

Thanks for popping up these photos for us all ... it's great to see you back Head!

Love the orchid shot -- wow, the detail -- and the header image is so fun! I can imagine someone blowing the dandelion fuzz like birthday candles ... :-)

{{Hugs}} to Pudsy!

I'm tellin' ya, if we could bottle the unintimidating charisma and shameless humanness that is you, then the world who be a much more loving and accepting place. Thank you for warming up my little fear-filled corner. Tonight I bask in the thought of you.

Keep basking, as long as they create those kind of hugs. I used to feel self conscious about revealing my thoughts, but then I turned eight, & said "to hell with it, this is how I feel, so live with it". It really has served me well.
That, & knowing how to play my "One Stringed Instrument". The one in the key of "F".
Thanks Pudsy.
