It is time for Outdoor Wednesday at A Southern Daydreamer. Go see all of the wonderful outdoor shots everyone has to share.
Today was finally the day- the canal rider called at 7:00 am and said, “You’ve got water in about 45 minutes.”
He may as well have said-
“The eagle has landed.” My husband went into high gear.
We just haven’t been able to keep up with our own feeble watering (hoses and sprinklers)- especially in the face of 100 + degree heat. Our yard is a little over an acre and irrigating is the best solution.
Even so, some of my plants (native plants) are really giving it their all-regardless of the drought.
Small Lavender Bush
Good luck everyone with your own watering.
PS. I bought a new camera on Overstock, so I have had fun with taking close-up shots. It was $79.99 with $2.00 shipping a while back.
It is a Pentax Optio M30, and it has settings for standard, macro, or super macro which is fun. The grapefruit, bougainvillea, and lavender photos were taken with super macro.
I wanted a giant, expensive camera that I could wear around my neck with an equally giant lens. Then in a moment of clarity I pictured myself at the flea market and a camera that fits in my pocket suits me just fine for now.
(I am putting a good face on this. I still want a giant camera with a giant lens so I look like a war reporter. The fantasy goes even further… I see myself wearing a wrinkled khaki shirt and shorts, hiking boots, Ray-Bans, and I plan to adopt an accent- sort of like Christiane Amanpour. I did minor in journalism. Sigh…)
