Thanks Shirlee for the comments. I'm using my new Canon Camera that I finally gave up and bought. I just couldn't get used to my daughter's DSLR. It just didn't make the clear bright colors that the Canon does.
I usually have the tripod on it but I did these just walking around, looking, and snaping. It was very cloudy this morning and that makes for good photos, too.
Thanks BB and Michele. I really love making pictures. I'm kinda demanding of my photos. I want them to be clear and clean, even if it's a photo of the compost pile. I like true colors. I don't change the colors, in fact I have only brightened a few last year when I was trying to use the other camera. I swear, Canon will spoil you rotten with beautiful colors.
Thanks everybody. It's been kinda a bad day. I think the time change caught up with me. It's a mental thing, I know. But it sure does make a body feel bad. Your comments helped. I really appreciate everyone on this site. We tend to lift each other up and that's what being a gardener is all about. We help Mother Nature and each other.
blessings to all, Mona
