Hi everyone. . . thanks for your warm welcome. Marilyn, you're not going to believe this, but when I was a kid, I used to go to Higgin's Lake with my aunt and her family every summer. Why did I move to France? Got married to a Frenchman. We live in northeastern France (Lorraine), but my iris garden is over 400 kilometers (sorry, talking metric to decent folks again) away, in central France. More photos, huh. . . sure, why not; how about this one:
Welcome Michele, so glad you are joining us. This is such a great cubit! We seem to talk about just about everything and have a great time doing it! And can you tell us the name of the beautiful iris in your photo?
My goodness I found my way back to this place again. I'm going to learn this cubits site if it's the last thing I do. I have lots of daffodils and other bulbs blooming right now. Don't have the camera or would have taken tons of photos. My irises should start blooming sometime in early April. I'm chomping at the bit and can't wait to see them in all their glory. So until then, I have to keep looking at my old iris photos.
The last two are World Preimer and as you can see the first one was mixed up. It had two falls one color and one fall the other and the same thing with the standards. It had 2 one color and 1 the color of what the falls were suppose to be. Has anyone else noticed anything like this in any of your irises? I thought it was rather strange so I did take a bunch of photos of it.
Polly, I went with the Canon SX30 and I really like it!
It was winter and snowy when I got it and the days have been nothing but colorless and white. I really haven't had a good time to try all the features out on it.
I am anxious to try the 35x zoom on wildlife and the macro on the flowers. It also takes a wider angle so I almost have to zoom for even a close shot. I am curious to see how that works with my long beds.
Michele, how wonderful! Another person who will have lovely photos! France is an interesting place to end up :o)
Oh my, ruffled and I can see the diamond dust in the blue. How beautiful!
Marian, your photos are going to become fast favorites!
Yes, please name your iris. I can't tell anything without a name.
Well, this one is for Michele. She said she used to go to Higgin's Lake every summer. We go fishing there a lot, and here is a picture from last year taken from the middle of the lake. Thought it might bring back some memories.
I do not know where my brain was on that one. I was thinking about when I was running (doing 5K races which is 3.1 miles). Somehow I got the 5K to equal one mile instead of the 3.1; I should stop doing things in my head and write them down! It is hard to get OLD.
My excuse is recently I read where the various statins in cholesterol medicines causes short term memory loss. Being 70 has nothing to do with it. I have trouble trying to remember why I walked into the kitchen.
I have the same problem and actually mentioned it to my doctor once. She said walking into a room and then trying to remember why we went there is common to everyone as we age. (THANK HEAVENS!) She said what we need to worry about is if we suddenly find ourselves driving down some road somewhere miles from home and have absolutely no idea how we got there. THEN we have to worry!
