That is a very interesting soap color you have going on Neil.
Looks kind of African.

Yes, I can see the angel. That is a beautiful picture.

Great, now I have soap envy and photography envy. Thanks a lot, Neil.


Seriously, though, that is a very nice looking soap. We don't have poison ivy here (thank goodness) but sounds like it would be very soothing.

That pic is amazing, what a cloud formation. You captured it beautifully.
