Wow... our day-lilies don't bloosom until August. We are seeing grass but there is still snow covering parts of the lawn. Planting season for flower beds here is the third weekend of May. By then, chances are minimal for a frost.

Bautiful pictures... did you take the photos yourself?

:D Paul

LOL...I'm cheating a little bit... these are actually last years pics. It does help though, we've had 8 inches of rain and I think 16 inches of snow this month. Some flowers never hurt anything.

Anyone know what these are? Hint: Could be used as a term of political derision.

to get back on track and keep this from turning into a political thread I'll post another pic.

I took this at the main quarry in Rocklin which is in disrepair and I personally feel it needs to be a historical landmark if not a state park. Penryn's quarry was the first commercially successful granite quarry in California in the mid to late 1800s but Rocklin had well over a dozen quarries, some of which are filled completely, but most are filled with water today...this one was in operation well over 100 years until the 1980s and the pillars and the main building still stand. the granite from both helped build the Cali state capitol and historical buildings in San Francisco. This was taken mid Feb in the evening and the vertical version is printed in 24x36 and hangs in my church lobby :D

I saw their new little editors today but didn't mess with them too much, I would love to learn photoshop but don't have the time/patience for that... :sleep:

My mom wins all kind of award with her "edited photo" entry's..
My Step-dad is better without it...
Before they remodeled their place they had photos hanging everywhere with ribbons on them, I'd tease the hell out of them about needing reassurance..lol..

Me? To many buttons and gizmos on PS, I just wish I had the time to learn how to make a decent B&W with it.

But then again I still need tons of work on composition and exposure so I don't fret it to much.
