A while back, I told you the story of my neighbor’s beautiful Bridal Veil Spirea.
I’ve also told you about how Oksana’s beautiful garden has been plundered and pretty much ruined by the flippers who are renovating her house.
The good news is that like all shrubs, this one will come back next year if no one disturbs it. Let’s hope my new neighbors — if we ever have new neighbors — will understand something about pruning shrubs and let it be.
Meanwhile, after a long day in the garden and a good rain to soak into the roots of all the new shrubs we planted, I was very afraid that my gorgeous flowers would be ruined this morning. I rushed outside with my camera to catch the raindrops on the petals, if there were any petals left.
I’m looking for a new point-and-shoot camera because my almost four-year-old Sony Cybershot just doesn’t do it for me anymore. That’s the dilemma of taking camera classes; I have much higher expectations for both myself and my camera. The good news is that the camera innards are actually better than the digital viewing screen and these came out much better than I expected. The bad news is that they are just not as crisply focused as I have come to love when using my DSLR.
Any recommendations for a new point-and-shoot for travel and living in my purse? After all, they say that the best camera is the one that is with you.
