sunny summer...

Posted by ManuelaR (Hainburg (Frankfurt/Main), Germany) on 13 July 2009 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Well I am afraid the expected "good news" didn't become reality... I must have surgery on my shoulder ligament as I have a rupture. We now have to cancel our holidays to Portugal & photography escapades. The recovery could take from 6 to 12 weeks. As I am a self-employed "one-woman show" with my own language school, things are not going to be easy :(
Good thing is the school holidays have just started and the surgery is now planned for the 23rd July... so cross all your fingers and toes for me, but don't fall down!!!

Wishing you all a wonderful summer! Take care :)

All went well and the recovery is progessing day by day. Thank you all so much for your kind & supportive words!

You hang in there Manuela. I know this is going to be tough on you. I love this entire image. The presentation of the flower is fantastic.
