July 31st - A New Beginning

I know that, technically, this was a thirty day challenge, but my OCD-like traits wouldn't let me finish yesterday. So, I'm finishing today with a New Beginning.

This is an amaryllis bulb, sprouting out of the ground. I thought they had finished for the year, since they hadn't sprouted in a few months, so I transplanted sunflowers over the bulbs (the green peeking out from behind the red shoot), so hopefully they won't interfere with each other too much. In a few days, I'm gonna have pretty flowers! :)

Good news! I followed some troubleshooting directions in my camera's manual, and it seems to have worked! Keep your fingers crossed for me that my camera keeps working! :) LOL

Thanks all, for the wonderful comments, it was a real gift you gave me! I wish I could have returned the favor, but I'm not very good at that, I'm afraid. I really appreciated the kind remarks. Thank you all very much!

I'm looking forward to another photo challenge, and plan on continuing this photo blog, so stay tuned! :) I probably won't post every single day, but a couple of times a week is my goal!

July 30th - George Carlin

I was on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, today. For about ten minutes! I saw Georges star, and couldn't NOT take a picture of it! :) I got a picture of every name I recognized for the two blocks I was there, but this is the one I wanted to share, since he is so recently departed. :(

I'm home again, now. My camera is still broken. The focus lock works sporadically, and there are only two focus options, instead of the four I'm supposed to have, which is a new problem, today. I fear I will be without a camera soon. At least it made it through the month. I will be forced to use my old 3.3 mp point and shoot. :( I'm very depressed.

However, I made it through the thirty days!!!!! Tomorrow will have a picture, and probably so will many more days after that, because this was great fun! I just wish I had a decent camera to continue with! Oh, well. :P

Thanks for the challenge, everyone! :D

July 29th - Ant Farm

I found an ant farm! Not the kind you can buy in a store, either. :) This is in my husband's aunt's garden. (aunt-in-law?)

I thought it was pretty cool. I'm out of town (in LA) at the moment, so sorry for the cruddy quality of the picture. Also, my camera broke, and is acting quite random! Really annoying!!!!

At least it still takes pictures, even if they are crap.

Anyway, here are the ants and aphids for your viewing pleasure!

July 28th - Cinderella?

I think Cinderella may have visited my garden last night. I didn't know they held balls around here! ;)

July 27th - Dinosaur

Today is my daughter's 6th birthday party. She helped me make her cake. What do you think? Cute, no? :)
Busy day, gotta go. Have a good one, all!
