Each of my three daughters gives me flowers on HER birthday… a family tradition handed down from my husband’s side. I was the lucky recipient of this beautiful bouquet in February 2012 from my eldest daughter. I dedicate this to her.

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.
