Hi Gonker,

 - it is a very hot day here so I just thought a little bit of playing with this photo was a cool occupation . . . . . 
though getting the Governor's garden up to something approaching a decent garden was harder than I thought.    ::) ;D ;D

They say some texture hides a multitude of sins   ;) - so herewith a textured photo of the (Camp) garden.

You didn't ask for it and probably don't want it . . .but it gave me a coolish hour or so.    ;) ;)

Glad you are pleased.  ;) 

I just had to go back and straighten it and re-post.  Can't have the Governor's sea view sloping to the left!   ;)  ;D

Another.

Edit: At second glance the sky looks dirty..
If a task is once begun never leave it till it's done. Be the labor great or small, do it well or not at all.
