  14. So sorry to hear about your health woes! You are in the medical field and know more than most people about these special situations. Special diets are the pits.

    Hope you get back to your normal self soon.

    Happy Thanksgiving.

  15. Beautiful flowers, Carmen. Perfect for autumn.

  16. Kind of makes me long for spring.

  17. Is that a red and yellow Dahlia? How special, I love the two tone. I have a beautiful purple and white that didn't do so well this year, but hopefully next

  18. such pretty captures!

  19. Consider my poetry book when you're Christmas shopping - Life's Journey by Carmen Henesy – it’s out on Amazon ( Poems about the things that have been important to me in my journey through life, some humorous, some sad, some that may have meaning to you as well ) I finally did it at the age of 65!
    ( Check out the reviews! )

    I just took my last dose of the two antibiotics I've been on for ten days - except for the four days I was on them IV in the hospital. I am definitely better every day!

    I am amassing quite a collection of flower photograps but nothing compared to my friend, Joanne Olivieri, Poetic Shutterbug! She must have thousands by now.

    Kim, USA -
    I'm so glad you liked my photographs.

    Geeta -
    I'm not giving up on India. Wouldn't it be fun if we both got there the same year! In the meantime, if you get to San Francisco, you must let me know.

    I am happy you liked my flowers. I am rarely without my camera these days...there is always something I want to photograph.

    I have really learned to keep my eyes open more these days, in terms of photography and subject matter!

    I think a grandbaby is still off in the future but, at least, I do have the granddogs! -
    Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope to see you here again!

    Eden -
    Flowers are so nice to photograph. At least, they usually hold still for you!!!

    Icy BC -
    When I can take pictures as well as you do, I'll REALLY be happy!

    Mia Love -
    Many thanks for your visit here!

    I had never seen a dahlia like this yellow orange one before. It is really very beautiful and so cheerful.

    Nature is quite the artist with such exotic color palettes!e

    I, too, think that header photo is special...and I discovered the spot just by chance, about three miles from my house - right next to the local dump! I have been back several times. Of course, with winter coming, the daisies have died back but I hope they'll be blooming in the spring, having self seeded in that area.

    I just love flower. I don't really have any planted at the house I rent but I take pictures of everyone elses!!

    I know there will be a wonderful feast at your house for Thanksgiving. I am really trying to be good and follow doctor's orders so that my test the end of the month will be accurate...but, oh, I can't wait to get it all over with and start a normal diet again.

    Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti -
    We have so little fall foliage changes out here, Pat, I envy you in your area. At least, I drove my son to work today since his car is in the shop and I actually saw some non evergreen trees near his office, all brilliant reds and bright yellow...really nice.

    I think spring is a long way off! Though here in the San Francisco area, winter stays pretty mild and it is normally not bad all winter.

    Self Sagacity -
    I hadn't really seen a multi colored dahlia before and that orange-red one just took my breath away.

    Flowers are so easy to photograph, aren't they?

  20. You would love The Philippines, Carmen! There are just so many orchids and stargazers, and all these exotic flowers! You can buy orchids anywhere and see them in the park and stuff.. :)
