  • Hi, Steve. Flowers are all I have since I've been confined to barracks for a few weeks. This huge building has several gardens and they are keeping my camera going. We had a bit of a windstorm, ...
  • Steve, I didn't know either. I'm still getting over the surprise of seeing irises in December, for the first time. Turns out the purple ones are southern to eastern Mediterranean species, as far ...
  • Replied in Tulip
    A beautiful tulip, Brad.  Very nicely photographed.  I like it.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • A very poignant picture, Rick.  It takes a lot of love to soothe such a tragedy.  Looks like you have plenty there in Oz.  Never again, I hope.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • What a great set of pix, Dicky.  I like the fly and the ginger best, but all are great.  Nice work, Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Thanks, Steve.  I didn't realize I'd posted that yellow iris last week, but I'm not surprised.  Things are a bit up in the air around here.  The December irises turn out to be a strain hybridized ...
  • Replied in Fall's End
    Well, WhyNot, it is a shame you have to endure Winter, while I splash in the puddles but am still enjoying surprisingly plentiful blossoms and I feel cold when it goes below 50 degrees (only once, ...
  • Hey, it got down to 55 degrees Fahrenheit here, just last night, and 67 during the previous day. Such temperature extremes put a great hardship on us, and why not? We deserve it for having such ...
  • Steve, I'm sorry you're ill. I hope the new antibiotic does its butt-kicking well and with as little side effects as possible. I, too, want to thank you for keeping up this thread, even while ...
  • Thanks, Andrew.  I'm amazed by the irises blooming this late.  Many of them blow over and break at the base when they open enough to catch the wind.  I was going to stake some of the big buds with ...
  • The flowers here on The Redwood Coast aren't giving up. All of these were made in the last few days, and today, and all from the gardens around my building. Rich E5, ZD 14-54 and pop up flash. E5, ...
  • I like it.  Back lit and sharp as a Wilkinson Sword, in silhouette.  It looks a bit like a fine art etching.  Nice work, Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Thanks, Brad.  You folks there in Jersey have earned some decent Winter weather.  I hope you get some.  I'm following the yellow iris's growth.  Here it is yesterday.  I'm amazed by the December ...
  • Thank you, Andrew.  They're a treat to me, too.  I'm going to put them on the wall.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Thanks, Rick.  I appreciate your comment.  Yeah, the rose is about to fall apart, next wind.  I've been shooting it for weeks.  I'll hate to see it go.  This particular garden at my building has ...
  • Steve, my friend in Carson City was equally impressed by the forecast. He was working up at the Lake and a single raindrop fell on the hood of his car, so he hauled out his E500 and shot it. He ...
  • Thanks, Lou.  I'm happy you enjoyed them and I appreciate the kind comment.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • I have never seen irises shooting up buds in December.  Last two weeks, torrential rains from Hawaii, lots of warm rain.  I expect it of the roses, but the irises in this one bed have been ...
  • I can't remember the character limit on these responses, so I'll do it in two posts. By the way, Steve, the pic in your post is with the E1 and no flash.  I made the effect with PP only, can't do ...
  • Well, Steve, I hope you never need it.  I, on the other hand will need it again next week.  I'm having my colon ripped open once again.  He went in the back way today and couldn't get the tumor. ...
