I LOVE an English Garden, Pat...Years ago, my dear friend Ron Rikin had a BEAUTIFUL English garden that he planted himself...And I took probably 300 pictures of it! All Slides...Some of them just gorgeous...
These pictures of yours are fine, my dear...You know, one of the secrets of photography is taking lots and lots of pictures and framing as carefully as you can--what you see through the lens, I mean...And, focusing carefully, if you can....As to the "creatures"...lol...I take picture after picture and try to be as still as I can...I love my camera, too...And it is not an SLR or is it SRL...Single Reflex...Which would be even better, because with the new Digital SLR's, there is no delay, as there is with the other DIGITAL'S...I mean the delay between focusing and actually getting the picture---that drives me nuts....! But...I so enjoy taking pictures of nature...The beauty of it all....It is very life affirming...! What kind of camera do you have? I really think the camera makes a BIG BIG difference...I have a second camera, and I am not as happy with it as with the one I have been using now for three years...!
Anyway...I LOVED seeing Margarets Garden, through your eyes....Keep On Keeping On, My Dear.

Oh, and I was down in my garden today and took lots and lots of pictures of some lovely unusual flowers and plants, too...They will be on the Blog, eventually...

Naomi: I am of the 'point and shoot' school. One of my sons is a photographer and he always tells me to read the manual.
I am using a digital Sony Cyber-shot 3.2 mega pixels. Sometimes I remember to press the little flower button but mostly I don't. And as for focusing my excitement affects that sometimes. Thank you for your encouragement and like everybody else I shall continue to enjoy yours.

Just beautiful! After living in the desert for 10 years, I love how lush and gorgeous this is. Michele says hi.
