  1. The pictures are gorgeous as usual. I sent my friends your ecards and they thought they were so special.

  2. I can never get over how beautiful and crisp your pictures turn out… what camera did you use for these?

  3. For the first one, it’s not easy to tell, but could that be a lunaria? In french, we call those “Monnaie du Pape” (that could be translated into “Pope’s pocket change”) and it makes wonderful dried flowers :)

    Anyway, you have a good eye and take very very very nice photographs…

  4. Martine: Thank you! It’s not lunaria but does have similarities. I know I can find it if I just take the time to go through my wildflowers book. But I don’t know what the flowers look like. Only the seed pod.
