No Flowers in My Yard Yet, But the Indoor Garden Continues to Cheer Me!

No Flowers in My Yard Yet, But the Indoor Garden Continues to Cheer Me!

People keep asking if I have any flowers in my yard yet.  Thank goodness with yesterday's snow, the answer is "No," but things are starting to poke out of the ground, so hopefully within a week I will have an outdoor plant to photograph! 

During the past week my oldest child's best friend was visiting from England with her incredible camera, and when I asked if she would photograph my indoor garden for me, she handed me the camera and said--"Here, you know how to photograph!  If you take the shot, you won't have to give me credit on your blog!"  Hmmm, is that the only reason I take pictures these days?

So before the clivia blooms drop off, I wanted to share some of the fun that I had (when I grow up, I want a camera like this!) . . .
