I can't say enough about the photographers on Flickr who allowed me to share their pictures. I really hadn't expected so many to respond, and it gave me a fantastic selection of pictures to work with. The hardest part was narrowing it down, when I wanted to include them all! Photographers, if you are reading this, thanks AGAIN for sharing your work! I think the photographs really "made" the article.
Yes, this was a marvelous article. I have forwarded the link to several friends who also admire Monet--and are incidentally gardeners as well! Thank you so much. I enjoyed it tremendously, as will my friends.
