They're small, but the Alliums can still make a pretty picture.


Notice the wee bug (wasp?) hovering a centimetre or two from the nearest blossom?

Hunh? What's a bokah?

Thanks for the compliment and I'll be sending the picture shortly.

(Wasn't kidding when yesterday I said I
took some pics today - and some good ones too

Yet another 'view' picture ... from the same behind-the-house flowerbed as the previous 'view' pic. This time I've included a few other small flowers (the specked violas and the lungwort)

I may be misspelling it...but it is a picture with clear subjects in the foreground and an interesting out of focus background...it is pretty hard to do with an auto camera I understand..

The camera? A Canon PowerShot SD800 IS Digital ELPH with Image Stabilizer

All I know is I paid around 400$ for it (I think) some 2 years ago and it wasn't the most expensive Canon available.

Avatar was taken last summer. Beard's about the same - but I've lost about 15 pounds since then. (down below 170 for the first time in 2 decades)

Last night I posted a row of tomato seedlings. Said the 42 'plants' only represented 1/8 of what I have. Here's the rest. The 42 seedlings came out of those 6 'holes' at the bottom of the picture.
