Dahlia's from Sarah's Garden

These are dahlias from my sister’s front garden. I took them this morning when I was out there to pick my Mom up. We also went to the GoodWill in Newmarket and I found the perfect desk for the computer whenever I finally move downtown. It’s not a pressed board piece of junk, it’s not too heavy to move around or to move in and it’s not huge so it will fit into the small basement apartment. Also, it has a pull out shelf for the keyboard and a footrest thing or tower rest (depending on which is more tired at the time). I’m really glad to have a computer desk. Even though it’s been months since I’ve actually seen my computer on and done anything with it. I miss it.

A Virus from Outer Space

I’m going to try to remember to put a flower (or something else pretty) in with each quote now. Just because I like them and… It’s my blog and I’ll pretty it up if I want to. šŸ˜‰ This pink daisy came from BlossomSwap, an online flower gardener’s community.

Red Roses from My Brother's Garden

I took masses of pictures with the digital camera this afternoon. A ton from my Mother’s garden and another ton from my brother’s garden but of all of them only one showed up on the camera. I am pretty sure it’s me that goofed. I should have double clicked or held the button down longer. Now that it’s too late (not that I can’t retake most of them tomorrow) I remember (kind of) reading that in the camera instructions. So, all I have for all those excellently framed and composed shots is one picture of red roses which I took in my brother’s backyard. I used Picasa to get them from the camera to the computer and that seemed to work out fine. I’m quite sure it’s just my oen goof up that did in the others. It’s too bad cause some of the fancy plants in my Mother’s garden will not be in bloom tomorrow. They are often a one day event.
