A Flower Rant!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Realty Arts

I like flowers.  All sorts of flowers.  Lots of flowers.  Colorful flowers.  Tall flowers.  Low flowers.  Scented flowers.  Unscented flowers.

Snapdragons, daisies, sunflowers, black-eyed Susans, roses, peonies, jasmine, jessamine, 

Pansies and Violas 006 Pansies

Hollyhocks, clover, Baby's Breath, Astroemeria, Carnations, dandelions, lilacs, honeysuckle, Daphne

Pansies and Violas 003 Violas,Pansies and Violas 005

Lilies, day lilies, gladiolus, azaleas, rhododendron, mountain laurel, forsythia, hyacinth, daffodils

Pansies and Violas 002Tulips

Ah-h--h Spring!  With lots of flowers!  And we have them all in Cary, NC!

Hmm.  I see why people rant.  I really enjoyed ranting.  Might have to rant more often!

Darleen,

Thanks.  Was it that "banker" thing?  :D

Ray,

Thanks.  You gotta love spring!

Marchel,

After last year's drought, with everything all brown, the bursts of spring color are even more welcome than usual.

Debbie,

Thanks!  Fill those planters!   They will make you smile.

I heard that Wake Forest next month is having a herb fest and showing how you can landscape with them and still use them in your foods. I am excited.

Mike,

I have been taking film photos for many years. I like the film reacts to light, and I became quite accomplished using that medium. As film became scarce, I was forced to acquire a digital body for my Nikon lenses. I chose a D80.

It does a journeyman type job, I like the convenience. But I miss the "pop" of transparency film!

Cheers.

Richard,

If your eye is good, you can get more from film, sure.

I don't have a good enough eye, and I like that I have over 4,000 photos on Flickr with no developing cost.

I have been thinking of breaking out the film camera just for fun, though.

Thanks for coming by!
