PS: great shot.


Well at least zig is actually seeing a hibiscus bloom. I lost all 6 of my Hibiscus bushes to the cold. All are dead, with no signs of any rejuvenation. It's enjoyable to actually see a current photo of one. Normally this time of year I would be having fun photographing my flowers.

Maybe I should forget the flowers and go take some gator picture for Ted!

A gator ate your hibiscus? I always thought they are carnivores...

Yeah - he looks like he has Steven's address written all over him.

Hey Steven, I want to be sure that you know that Zig and I are teasing you but that doesn't mean we're making light of you losing your Hibiscus bushes. I'm really sorry you lost them - I hate to see any beautiful plant die. We're just trying to get you to smile.

I'm glad that zig actually saw a gator. After this winter, all the gators have left from my lake. They have been replaced with a new, strange looking flock of birds!!!

Here is the new state bird of Florida:

Really nice shots Ted.
Now you and the rest of the tribe have inspired me. Have to go out and show what the rainy cloudy Northwest has to offer....

Thanks. Do it while you can - a heavy thunderstorm yesterday knocked most of the daffodils down to the ground. Jeeez theres a small window for outdoor shooting around here in the Spring...
