Just some color from around the yard

1 Comment

I like flowers, easy subject matter and beautiful without enhancement. For improving on Mother Nature is a task only for the masters and they can’t do it consistently or as long. Plus the colors they provide are tough to make people feel though a photograph. But as I see others trying I’ll give it my shot today.

For these colors are right outside my door. And I love each shade. I have to start spending more time outside.

Must be my wife with the green thumb. I just take care of the grass cutting, tree trimming and weed killing.

Some of our flowers are gifts and very important to us.

My Mom had a real green thumb. I’ll never go there myself.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
