Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    Luscious enough to eat, Dot!

  • Thank you, Monnie. More today, but not nearly as nice as this one so I didn’t bother with the camera.

    Ooooo love the color of this Dot!!!! Day lillies are one of my favorite flowers! Used to have hundreds and hundreds of them! Started all of them from just 10 bulbs!!!

  • Thank you, Ruth. These are very short. A clump of them was planted by the builder, and they bloom every year. One year something ate the tops off, right down to the stems. I tried sprinkling cayenne pepper around them the next year, and either it worked or no animal was interested. I’ll never know which.
