May 20, 2012

What can I say?  It's another glorious morning here in my little part of the world.  We're supposed to have more rain tomorrow, but that's okay.  This whole weekend has been simply divine. 

I promised some photos of my new garden plants so here goes.   Dee Dee and Eddie brought me this pretty Home Run Rose, and planted it for me. 

Here's the planter full of blossoms that Janet brought me.  I planted it in the kiln near my living room door.  When it gets a bit bigger, it will be hanging down around the sides of the kiln.  Note my handicap parking sign in the background. 

I also have a photo of my new wind chimes that Audrey sent to me.   There is a little nest on the top with a little bluebird perched on the side of the nest.  I've been filling the nest with birdseed.  When there's a breeze, these chimes make a lovely tinkling sound.

Last night, I worked on my photo class assignments.  One of them is about shooting water shots, and I had quite a bit of fun with this one.  I was just using running water from the kitchen sink faucet so my photos aren't very good (the lighting wasn't very good), so I'll try it again at the park this week.  There is a lovely waterfall there that's perfect for practicing water shots with a slow shutter speed.

There's supposed to be a solar eclipse this evening in the Western part of the country.  I wonder if we'll get to see any of it.  I'll have to keep watch just in case.  I'm also trying my darndest to get a nice photo of the Mrs' hummingbirds, but so far no luck.  These little buggers are very camera shy.

Now it's time to get Tootsie her morning meds.  She's being very quiet in hopes that I'll forget them, but that's not going to happen little girl.  Here's hoping that all of you are enjoying this same fabulous weather.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

You can never have too many roses - they just keep blooming their little hearts out.
