Nice shot. Like the fact that you took it from a distance.

What a great WW pic! Love the info about why it was built too.

Had lots of catching up to do on your site as I have been away. The pictures of all the flowers are just gorgeous! Can't wait for all this dirty snow to be gone and some green grass and flowers growing!

I keep coming back and looking at that picture. I think what touches me most about it is that it was dedicated to Betty.
Makes me think someone loved her very much and that she was a kind, loving, Christian woman.
So touching.
