macro monday, mosaic monday and other m related things
shots that i've taken at the shakespeare gardens since the poppies and larkspur have started blooming. did you know that larkspur is the flower for july? i've known that since i was a kid because my birthday is in july but i never saw larkspur blooming until now. i've decided that i really like the deep purples.
this is an older macro as i've not been really satisfied with any macros lately. i've been making myself way too tense over them. plus, the zinnias (among other things) really took a beating during the rainstorms this month. but i'm not going to complain, we came out very lucky and i want to keep it that way. other people lost their entire houses in the flash floods eight days ago and didn't have flood insurance because they are not located in a flood plain. yes, i'm counting my blessings.
another m word - movies. finally got to see the new star trek movie and enjoyed it. it really kicks starts the series all over again in a very convenient, but nice way. my brother and fellow trekkie was not as happy with it. chris pine is good eye candy (albeit very young eye candy).
sweet dreams and finer things.
