The Challenges dealing with drought and dogs, trying to create a garden sanctuary. The goal is a lush and full garden with minimal maintenance and water needs. Oh almost forgot, one thats dogproof as well.
Yep, snapped the first hummer pic EVER. I wish those tiny little birds were larger and slower. That would make it SO much easier to photograph them. I have also noticed that they are skittish, and frequently fly away when I try to approach them. Lizards are WAY easier to photograph, as they sit completely still.
Now I need to research and buy a telephoto lens that I can attach to my camera.
Every spring this purple Clematis gets prettier and prettier.
It doesn't bloom for long, but when it does it is breathtaking. Nothing is prettier April mornings than seeing this Jackmanii in full bloom, the morning sun reflecting of the perfectly purple petals. Just stunning.
This is only the second year, so next year it should really be putting on a show.
We took a nice"weekend" trip down to the coast to fish. The fishing part became excrusiatingly boring for me after a few hrs, so I started to chase birds with my camera instead. Costal birds are definatly excotic for land locked folks like me. Tohough absolutely STUNNING.
