~ someone else's camera.
I gave the manservant a camera for his birthday – a small point & shoot Canon which fits in his shirt pocket. Today I got a chance to play with it.
This morning we rented a car for a trip to the nursery for potting mix and plants. This is the jallopy we got:
We came home with quite a bounty – at least we hope produce will be bountiful:
Last spring we applied to the city council for a free tree to go in the nature strip between footpath and gutter. This is a program to "green" the city and once it is planted it is basically on its own – or at the mercy of the citizen who applied for it. We didn't hear anything back from them so assumed that we had been assessed as not suitable to be tree parents. Then, one day during winter, a tall grey "stick" appeared. No note; no instructions; no name.
Last week it started sprouting leaves and today I noticed they are quite prolific:
Back into our own garden - visitors are met by a Japanese maple:
The azaleas under our front windows are a profusion of colour. There are actually 3 different coloured azaleas here but they are starting to blend in. Perhaps I should be pruning them. At least then the Pepco guy would be able to read the electric meter accurately.
The peonies have buds:
My vox neighbour, Magnifika, recently went on a cruise which included a stop in Australia. She has been posting about her time there and yesterday did a post on Didgeridoos. I mentioned to her in a message that the manservant and I have a didgeridoo each and she asked if I would photograph them and post them. So … mine is on the left. The manservant makes quite good sound on his – mine is more for decoration!
Mmmm…… I was having huge problems trying to get this saved and posted using Firefox on my Mac, so I copied and pasted it into vox using Safari – and this funky white box(s) is the result!! After saving in Safari I went back to Firefox and inserted the photo of the two didgeridoos - hence the black "box" in the middle of the funky white ones!
