A Little More Spring...

Memphis Botanic Garden---Tulips
Thanks to all of you for such a warm welcome back! I really did miss all of you while I was away...you meet some of the nicest people blogging.

I promise that I won't be posting flower photos ad nauseam all Spring...but these purple tulips at the Botanic Garden posted yesterday were just too pretty to keep to myself. I discovered the macro setting on my point-n-shoot camera while in Florida, and I'm still learning to play with it. Having a perfectly clear, sunlit day doesn't hurt either, does it?

My younger son is using the computer for his term paper tonight, so I'm posting while he's taking a break. I hope to do some blog-visiting either later tonight or tomorrow evening. I hope that your week is going well so far!

These are great. Flower shots this time of year are wonderful in my opinion.

Concerning the new discovery on the camera. I am in touch with my inner geek soabout once a week my inner geek directs me to go through the owners manual of my camera. I never fail to come across a feature I haven't made much use of. Then I run out and keep working with it until I get it down.

My goodness, they're pretty! I love playing with the macro mode as well, though it's better on my decade-old camera than it is on the newer ultra-zoom I currently use. Go figure! :-\

Absolutely beautiful, Andrea. I need to play with my camera more! I haven't done much with it at all!
