Springtime is time for...

taking a close look at what remains of last year's garden. Hosta leaf and Cottoneaster berry.





And the promise of this year's growth: lilac leaf buds

Beautiful. Those hosta leaves are almost O'Keefe-ean.

What wonderful photos! I love this part of spring - half murky and tired and half bursting with life.

Those are beautiful photos elizabeth, can I ask what camera you use?

I just put a pic of my tea rose buds on my blog. I guess spring draws some of us outside with our cameras. You always take great pictures.

Thanks all!
Carolyn, my camera is an Olympus Camedia C-5060 5.1 megapixels. My husband did the research and picked it out. I probably would have gone a cheaper route, but I'm happy he was in charge of this decision, because I'm starting to really appreciate what this camera can do.

I'm thinking about buying a digital SLR at some point. But for now, this camera suits me fine.

The only downside: it came with a small printed owner's manual (quick reference) and the full manual is in the form of a 200+ page pdf. I bought a 3 ring binder and I'm printing out the relevant parts as I need them and assembling the full manual. It's annoying to be out in the field and not be able to figure out how to do something that I know can be done.

Such great pics! I am scared to look at my garden. I have camera manual issues too. Sam claims it's not lost but he won't find it! In the meantime I have to take 5 photos to get one good one. Gotta love digital. I'll hav e to look for mine online.
