More rain in Buda

We got a pretty good rain last night and it was still drizzling this morning.  Of course I had to get out this morning with the camera and see what had been perked up from the rain.

It's amazing how much the morning glory has grown on the fence in just a few days.  What a bargarin at about $.89 for a packet of seeds.

Here's another weed that was too beautiful to pass up.

  1. Great shots. What camera setting do you use for your close in shots?

  2. Thanks, Bonnie. I've been using the macro setting for the close shots. I need to learn to take more landscape shots, but macro is so interesting.

  3. I am interested what sort of equipment you are using?

  4. Hey Philip,

    I am using a Nikon Coolpix L100. My parents gave it to me for Christmas and I am just now learning how to use it. Most of the pictures on here were done either with the closeup feature or macro.


  5. Great pictures and a fabulous garden! So happy to "meet" you! Linda

  6. Thanks so much, Linda! It's quite exciting to get comments on the blog.


I would love for you to leave me a comment...Rebecca
