Hi. I just wanted to say I've been lurking by way of CG's site and I really love your work and your outlook. When my day is awful or just much too much I come over here and look at your pictures and read. I especially loved the video of the hailstorm. We had one up here in Connecticut awhile back that lasted a good 30 minutes and left hailstones the size of peas and golf balls. Haven't seen that here since the late seventies.

That is quite spectacular Jim. I haven't got that far in my photoshop experience yet but it's nice to see some of the things one can achieve. :)

Ooh, I love hollyhocks, but I'd never really noticed that they have stars in their centers, how neat!
