I was sure that I would have heard from Nikon by now. Because, when the Postal Service delivered my precious camera to them, I was certain that it would somehow stand out so that the people who evaluate broken cameras would be inexorably drawn to mine and grab it from wherever it was in the bin and look at it before any of those others. It seems that so far they have been able to resist this temptation. This leaves me with no choice but to cheer myself up with some of the – and I am not kidding here – approximately 23,000 unprocessed photos presently on my hard drive that I have taken since getting my D70.
Yellow makes me really really happy. My favorite “Bountiful Valley” daylily makes me happy.Doesn’t Queen Anne’s Lace make you happy? It’s a weed, but I usually don’t have the heart to pull them up because they are just so pretty.This begonia made me happy all last winter inside the house and all summer long on the porch. I think I will bring it inside tonight because I don’t trust that it won’t get too cold when it gets down to 40 degrees tonight.The photos I took of this “Erin Farmer” daylily bloom are some of my favorites from the whole summer. I may have even put one of them on the blog already, but here she is again.Finally, this was the last bloom of this particular Gloriosa Daisy. I planted a couple different varieties of these rudbeckias in this general area 7 years ago. They bloomed for two years and then nothing for 3 years – not a trace of them anywhere. Then last summer there were all over the place and again this year – one of my favorite garden surprises ever. Now don’t you feel a whole lot better?
