What a day I had yesterday. I knew something was up when I noticed a huge spike in my blog views. Totally forgot to check my blog email, or I would have seen that my blog was chosen for “Freshly Pressed.” I still can’t believe it. 1325 views! I just moved from blogger. com about a month ago and really didn’t expect to make the “front page.” I must have sat staring at the screen for ten minutes. I even took a picture of it because I couldn’t get my “print screen” to work.
Anyway, I’d like to give a huge thank you to WordPress and to everyone who visited my blog. All the comments were intelligent and thoughtful and I really appreciate that.
Now, how about some photos? Flickr has made some changes, and now pictures are bigger and crisper. Some of mine look better in the new format and some look baaaaad. Every flaw is basically magnified, so I’ll be editing a little more carefully.
I went to one of my favorite nurseries yesterday and shot flowers in 95-degree heat (insane, I know, but the muse must be obeyed). There was too much sun, but I worked around it.
Hmmm, the new Flickr won’t allow me to move photos the way I used to. All I can do is hit “blog this” and one photo shows up in the blog. Don’t really want to do a separate blog for each shot, so will have to enquire. Thanks for your patience….
One more shot. I love coleus, but they’ve kinda’ gone out of vogue. This one is so vibrant, yeah?
Thank you so much for stopping by….
