I slept in this morning. If felt really good to not be in a rush to get out the door, get to the laundry etc. Drama Teen and I went out for a leisurely breakfast, something we very rarely do. We enjoyed the slow pace this morning, lingering over breakfast just talking about nothing in particular. She's going on a trip to Colorado sponsored by the school's science teacher, so I won't have her company for about a week. It was nice to have some quiet time before we gear up for all the prep and packing she'll need to do before she leaves on Monday.
The suggested topic this week for Foto Finish is "Gardening". With my black thumb, gardening is just something that doesn't happen much around here. Maybe because I'm so bad at the garden thing, I love visiting gardens when we go on vacation. A number of years ago, we spent a week in Oregon. One of the places I wanted to visit was the Portland Rose Garden. I was new to SLR digital photography, my Canon 20D was only about 2 weeks old when we made the trip, so I was still trying to figure out all the settings, so a number of my photos from that visit can be classed as "learning the camera shots". But I did get a couple of decent shots, including this one.
I have no idea what kind of flower this is. We don't have anything like it here in Oklahoma. I like the colors. The flower reminds me of a ballerina, it has such graceful lines.
This is the last Foto Finish until Barbara gets back from her quilty travel adventure next month. So wonder over to Cat Patches this week and get your Foto fix for the next 30 days.
