I did start my next house on the sampler, but it's too small a piece of progress for a picture.
We celebrated three family birthdays last week, but the main celebrating has been delayed due to various reasons such as scheduling conflicts and illnesses. We did get my husband a new camera for his birthday/Father's Day, so I wanted to share a few pictures he took in our backyard.
Our "Endless Summer" hydrangea- one of my favorite plants:
A photo of one of our geraniums:
One of my favorite flowers for borders-lobelia:
A close-up of a rose bush we have in a clay pot that's called Scentimental:
This one has an overexposed look, but for some reason I like the bright colors. Our Christmas poinsettias are still red in spots, in the foreground:
A photo of the goldfinches:
Next is one taken on the older camera. In time the new camera will have a zoom lens, but for now the older camera has the capacity to zoom in closer, but the quality isn't as clear:
Finally, a photo of our feeder's latest visitor. This huge crow has been eating off the platform feeder, and has scared off our Western Scrubjays. I wish he would find another place to eat!
Thanks for visiting here, and I hope you have a great day.
