You Capture...Nature

Here is my first attempt at You Capture...

This week's theme is Nature...easy, peasy for me since I have been obsessed with taking pictures with my new camera and, since no one wants me to take pictures of them, I have been stalking all the foliage in my backyard.  By the way, have I told you how much I love my new camera???

The beautiful, yummy, pom-pommyness of these hydrangeas just makes me happy!





This one is hanging in my screened porch...I think it is called foxglove.  So pretty and dainty...like me!  (LOL!!!)

Large hanging basket of petunias hanging from the shed.  Love their colors!

Front stoop flower pot...got one just like it on the other side....I am all about balance!


Azaleas...can't take credit for these...they have been here forever from the looks of them...maybe even before the dinosaurs.


That's a tour through the nature that is my backyard.  How about yours?

great pictures.

I want to take a picture of stuff in my yard if it ever stops raining long enough for things to bloom!

beautiful pictures!

My backyard has more bails of hay then flowers. Straw has a longer life span around here then plants!

I find myself taking photos of flowers with every new camera I buy. No one wants you to take their picture, but they're always the first to ask for copies of themselves.
