Hibiscus


We took a sweltering but worthwhile stroll through Longwood Gardens today.

Catching Up: First of All, Prom



I took several hundred prom pictures.  It's hard to pick a few but here are a couple of my favorites.

Killdeer in Action





Saturday we went to Heislerville Wildlife Management Area in New Jersey for a bike ride, a ride in which we were tormented by flies.  Early in the ride we stopped alone the road to view the birds.  This Killdeer had chosen to nest less than twelve inches from the road, an unfortunate choice that may result in her nest being run over.  People frequently pull off the road here to crab or bird.  But the happy result, for me anyway, was witnessing her protective displays including fanning out all her feathers, running from the nest, and feigning a broken wing.

Who Me?


With the new iphone and my back pain I haven't been posting much of late.  However, I have been posting very regularly to Tumblr and Instagram.  So if you want to see what's up check out those sites.  I do plan to continue posting here, especially when I'm using the Nikon.

Last Fall



I prepared this post last fall and never posted it.  I'm in the process of planting the coleus I saved over winter, acquired from pots I walked by, and of course some new ones I bought this year.  Aside from what I think is a bad case of spider mites in one of my plants at the studio everything is looking good.  These are a few of the beautiful varieties from Longwood Gardens.

Mother's Day




It's been fun to have my parents nearby.  We spent Saturday together since Olivia works on Sunday.  And of course we all had to play with our new phones.

Phone Post



I've been taking a lot of walks with my new phone.  It's nice to walk free of the camera although I'm sure I'll soon be returning to my old ways.  This is an entirely phone created post-a test run

Figuring Things Out



Big changes happening here; my parents moved to town, Olivia is graduating, and I joined the smart phone era.  That resulted in me having to upgrade the operating system on my mac (no I don't need "find my mac" for my incredibly large and heavy power mac) which has left me fumbling.  Do they really need to change E V E R Y T H I N G??  Plus "Yosemite" is not at all as grand or majestic as the adds make it look.  In fact, it looks like my computer is visiting the 80's.  And seriously, what happened to "save as"?  Sigh But these are photos I took with the iphone yesterday.  And that was before I downloaded the fancy new camera app.
