Flowers and Droplets

Here is a quick post showing some of my most recent pictures.

I am really enjoying my new camera,now if only
I had more time to use it.


I planted some Tulips last fall and was looking forward to seeing them.
This one of them.
I like the pointed shape and colour.


The other set is more red and a different shape.I may have to plant a few more Tulips this fall.

I almost missed the apple blossoms,but was able to find a few that still looked nice.


After a rain I was able to capture these droplets on the pine needles.


My Lantana is doing very well this year. I really enjoy this colourful flower and so do the Hummingbirds.


Take time to enjoy the beauty all around you.

Beautiful pics, Ruth! Now that my garden is more established and I'm not digging up plants as often, I see it's time to plant more tulips...and daffodils, and hyacinth...and...well,more bulbs in general!Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi Ruth, Your new camera is working great. Now, my experience has been it's not the camera so much as the person taking the photo. So, I think you will do just fine with any camera! :-) Have a great day and thank you for commenting on John's Island. John
