  • Superb!
    Natura, prin ingeniozitate si extraordinara diversitate, ma uimeste si ma emotioneaza intotdeauna. Interventia creaturii superioare este, de asemenea, impresionanta.
    Va felicit doamna Noemi!
    Va multumesc si pentru comentariul la gradinile mele japoneze. Nu prea sincronizez, intr-adevar, succesiunea slaidurilor cu muzica pentru ca nu-mi pot rezerva prea mult timp pentru o activitate atat de placuta.
    Va doresc numai bine,
    Rodica
