YAY!!! After yet another long winter of being laid off and miserable, broke and cold in New England, the friggin weather has FINALLY started to break… which means FLOWERS!!! As I prepare to head out into the yard to transplant the beautiful variety of flowers my awesome Aunt Sherry allowed me to cull from her extensive gardens yesterday, I thought I would share some recent pics of all the beautiful early spring flowers I have been discovering on my daily walks. I have to say, I’m quite unused to the new digital camera my love got me for Christmas, being a total luddite, and I’m sure I’m not using it to it’s full potential. But, I LOVE MACRO!!! Unfortunately, I’ve never had a lens for my 35mm that could get in quite this close. It’s very handy for taking close ups of the jewelry I make, and for amazing flower pictures!! Plus, it has a wide angle lens for when we’re hiking and a ton of optical zoom for capturing birds in trees and even in flight! So far I’ve filmed an osprey and a red-tailed hawk. I’m hoping to spot a falcon soon, they’re my favorite! I’ll post those pics next time!
