Seven years old today!

May is the month when the poppy brings a vibrant splash of colour to the garden.  Often, overnight, the furry green protective shell of the bud explodes, exposing the tissue-like petals of the new flower.  Backlit by the afternoon sun, the petals produce a palette of shades ranging from yellow to deep red.

Regardless of the inauspicious beginning the site has blossomed and has given me  much pleasure.  WordPress statistics tell me that today’s post is No. 1378.  Every post has included at least one (unrepeated)  photo/image and sometimes more.  There have also been more than 97,000 ‘views’ recorded.  (I have yet to become involved with the social media in any of its guises!)

I would like to thank all of the visitors to this site and hope that my enjoyment in the creative process has been shared.

  1. Congratulations, Louis, so much work over those years, and pleasure. Pleasure for you, obviously, and for us. Your vision is unique, and appreciated. And that first post is lovely! 😉 Here’s to many more – I would toast you with champagne if I were in the neighborhood.

  2. Many thanks Lynn. U greatly appreciate your constant support and observations. I wouldn’t like to think that distance could deprive you of a champagne moment! Good health!
