  1. Patty – I fell in love with your amazing photo of the Edelweiss with a tint of blue in the background. May I re-use it? Its perfect. I will give you credit but I will need your last name to do so. I am opening a site in the coming weeks selling organic cosmetics and the make up contains edelweiss extract which is a potent antioxidant for the skin. . Please let me know. I streamed through a ton of Edelweiss photos but yours is unique. (
    PS- Merely scanning through your blog is a very moving experience!


    1. Thank you Michelle, but it is not mine. The truth I am not sure who did it. I had saved it from an email from long ago and decided to use it. I just give credit to the internet! Thank you for liking it. I will be sure to check out your site when you get it up and running! Blessings
