Hi Barbara, thanks very much. I really like coming to your site as it helps improve (my very poor) German.
And it's a lovely site too of course!!
Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I'm glad you did, so I found the way to your “place”. I've been strolling around, admiring your beautiful and stunnig photos. You tend an absolutely wonderful garden. I'll certainly come and visit again and I hope you don't mind if I link you on my blog.

Great photo! now your second job is really?
