This is Daphne. I'm hijacking Gracie's picture site to post some pictures I took in the backyard this morning. My baby's breath rosebushes are so beautiful now and my red hibiscus is blooming abundantly. I was experimenting with a setting on my new camera when I took these shots. Mostly, they're for my dad. When I was growing up and we'd get film pictures back, there would invariably be several shots of leaves or flowers mixed in with the candid snapshots of kids and family. Daddy, I guess I inherited a little of your love of taking nature pictures!
P.S. - I made the background on this page from converting one of the bloom pictures into a kaleidoscope - pretty cool, huh?
