Yellow Mums

There hasn't been a lot of sun around here lately, so I decided to buy some flowers to brighten up the place.

Winter Discoveries

There is not much to photograph with a macro lens in the winter. All of the plants are covered with snow and the trees are bare. But I did manage to take a few macro photos today near Long Pond.

Cape Spear

A few photos from Cape Spear today. It was a beautiful day, not too cold, with a nice sky for photos.

The Goulds

We went for a drive around The Goulds today. It's not far from the city but I rarely go there and if I do it's just to drive on the main road and pass the community. Today I'm glad I went on some of the back roads.

Kenny's Pond

I think this business needs to replace its flag. I drive by this every day and I finally had to take a picture of it. For those who might not know what our provincial flag looks like, you can click here.

Signal Hill

Always the same but always different. I love Signal Hill for its view and ever changing weather, it makes for great photo opportunities.

Birds in Bowring Park

Finally a sunny day that I could enjoy. I spent some time taking photos of the birds in Bowring Park this morning.

Drooping Daisy

My flowers are hanging on, but barely. Still, you can make a dying flower look good if you just spray some water on it.

Fort Amherst Boat Basin

A popular spot for me to take pictures, but everything looks nicer in the snow.

Thin Ice and No Snow

We managed to get out of the house today for a drive, after being housebound with the flu for over a week. We drove to Portugal Cove-St. Philip's and then on to Manuels. We had a lot of rain a couple of days ago and I was surprised to see how little snow they have out that way. We have more in the city than they do.

More Flowers

I am still sick so this is all I managed today. Hopefully I will soon be over this flu and able to get outside to get more interesting photos.

Birthday Flowers

I got a lovely mixed bouquet for my birthday and since I am housebound with the flu it was the obvious option for my blog today.

Birthday Gifts

Yes, today is my birthday. I got gifts and cards and emails and phone calls. And if it wasn't for the fact that I was sick with the flu it would have been a perfect birthday! Joe got me a carrot cake (my favourite) and a GorillaPod. It's a neat travel sized tripod that you can wrap around poles and railings or stand on uneven surfaces. It will come in handy when we travel. He also gave me 2 remotes for my camera, something I have been wanting for a while.

In all Kinds of Weather

We had a repairman come to the house today to do some upgrades on our internet service. He had to work in the snow for 1/2 of the time, and it was snowing heavily at the time.
