It's always such a pleasure to visit you Debi. Your photgraphy never fails to inspire me...and leave me a little envious:)

Lovely shots everywhere here Debi!

Who would think to photograph a dried and faded bird of paradise? But it makes a wonderful view, doesn't it?

This is fantastic, Debi! I love it. Would this be a photo you'd allow me to use?

Why would you do this to me? I made a special DVD for you of your artwork and this is the thanks that I get? Do you know how many man hours went into that DVD? I'm crushed. How thoughtless. How rude. How crude. Painful. Shame on you!

The Bird of Paradise is one of my favorite flowers and you dare to show it in its death throes! I was under the impression that B of P never die and now this. It's like hearing the truth about Santa Claus all over again.

It's 4:22am and I am an admitted insomniac but, with this newfound knowledge, I may never sleep again. Why do you torture me so?
