    More photos from my tiny, containerised garden. Studies of flowers mostly, sometimes insects.
  3. For an example of substantial revising while keeping the old comments and everything else associated with the original story, have a look at @WolfM or @Carlos Hazday (who helped with the revisions) might be able to talk you through what they did.

The snorts were particularly loud at 'I danced the briefest tarantelle' - such a perfect description of that nanosecond before the inevitable. Aren't we mean? Nature nearly always returns to love in your poetry and it gladdens my heart.
