even though it was “pink”, you still got a blue guy in there. I love you catching the dragonfly on the rose, though!

posted on July 27th 2010 at 9:14PM CDT

Thank you! Actually it was one of the MUCH larger lotuses that they have right now!

posted on July 27th 2010 at 9:28PM CDT

WOW! I LOVE this photos. Flowers are one of my favorite things to photograph, so I found great joy in comparing the lighting and shadows in your pictures. However, the pink of the first photograph (with the dragonfly) immediately caught my attention. Lovely. Happy WW!

Thank you so much! Keith pointed out to me and I almost fell into the water trying to grab that shot lol!

I was inspired to take some macro shots this weekend…and they didn’t turn out very well. Your shots are my inspiration to try again.

posted on July 28th 2010 at 12:17AM CDT

TRY again! Half the time my shots don’t come out. So out of 100 photos perhaps… 10-30 are decent.

posted on July 27th 2010 at 10:55PM CDT

However did you attain that photo? I couldn’t get the dragonflies to slow down to look at them let alone get a pic?

posted on July 28th 2010 at 12:18AM CDT

Keith pointed the dragonfly out to me, it was only there for maybe 30 seconds before it flew away, that was the ONLY photo I have of it!

posted on July 28th 2010 at 12:13AM CDT

You know that visiting your blog on Wednesdays is one of my favorite things to do. Just to see all the beautiful photos that you take…

posted on July 28th 2010 at 12:18AM CDT

Awww you’re so nice to me!

Thank you! Oh yes, it is freaking THRILLING FOR US! Last night we also saw THREE raccoons under the birdfeeder LOL.

posted on July 28th 2010 at 6:29AM CDT

Great job! I love the first one too.

Fantastic photo of the blue jays! We had a fantastic group of cardinals on our feeder a few weeks ago but lately all we’ve seen are the neighborhood bullies of the bird world: the crows. I’m not refilling our feeder for a few weeks – hopefully the crows will forget about us and the beautiful cardinals, finches and doves will come back.

posted on July 28th 2010 at 12:36PM CDT

I’ve only seen maybe 1 or 2 crows, usually the bluejays fight them out lol. We have 2-3 cardinals right now and 5-6 bluejays. It’s AWESOME.

Those are some gorgeous flowers!! I like to take trips to greenhouses every year just to take pics of their flowers.

posted on July 28th 2010 at 12:36PM CDT

Oh yes! We frequent our local botanic garden, it’s one of my favorite places!

posted on July 28th 2010 at 7:52AM CDT

I found you through the #31DBBB challenge and saw your comments on plugins on BlogFrog and honestly..you and your blog and your tips might be the best thing I’ve discovered doing this challenge so far! I feel like I have so much to learn and I’m checking out your plugin posts and blog design info, etc. I cannot thank you so much for sharing this information – and in such a clear fashion! thank you, thank you, thank you!

Love the photographs above too! The bird shots are amazing! I’m good at never having my camera readily available when I see a bird in our feeders.

posted on July 28th 2010 at 10:07PM CDT

OH thank you so much!!

I basically SPRINT to the freaking window to grab shots of the birds LOL!

These are so lovely. I felt the overwhelming urge to sniff my computer screen. Well, except for the bird photos. I digress. These are ALL beautiful. Great work!

posted on July 28th 2010 at 10:05PM CDT

LOL thank you so much! I don’t recall the roses having much of a fragrance sadly, I think they are more for looks!

Great pictures. I took a break from 31DBBB to do this today too. And I love your design! Some day when I grow up my blog will be this well organized and pretty!

posted on July 28th 2010 at 10:03PM CDT

Thank you so much! I just fiddle around usually with my own blog, usually on the backend where no one sees the changes LOL!

Those are beautiful photographs. I love roses.

Thank you Kim! I love roses too, especially peace roses.

my favorites are the old world roses. Non hybrids because of the fragrances. I have a collection of about 125 roses. Strangely enough. No Double Delight. I do have a lot of David Austin’s roses.

posted on July 30th 2010 at 3:26PM CDT

I WISH we had roses in the backyard, perhaps next year. They are such a wonderful flower. Oh wow you NEED to share photos of all the varieties you have!

posted on July 29th 2010 at 11:46PM CDT

I love, love, love your blog design (especially the header), and of course you content is lovely too. ;)

One word: STUNNING! Love ’em all Sarah!
Sorry I’m so late in stopping by. Life has been kicking my butt lately. And…we’re moving to Missouri in a couple weeks. Talk about stressed! Hope you have a great weekend.

The blue of the bluejays is spectacular, and I’m so impressed with the dragonfly. I love how you make the wilting rose look beautiful.

posted on August 5th 2010 at 10:48PM CDT

Thank you so much! I only wish we had rose bushes in our garden but alas, have to get my fix at the botanic garden lol.
