I took a picture of the bloom but it is just one of the prettiest things I have seen lately.
The wind has put a damper in my photo taking, though I have been having fun just experimenting with the new lens. It is amazing the clarity I get on some of the shots. I am trying to learn all the things my camera can do- I have yet to be able to capture the hummingbirds though they are still fighting over the Mexican Honeysuckle at the back. There are two and they really go at it. Maybe today I will capture them. I have it on the "runner/sport" speed so you would think I could get it, but no.
Enjoy my new favorite:
