Got a new camera, so thought I'd try some flower shots...enjoy!
Gerbera daisy from last year. I can't believe it does so well.
Mandevilla (also overwintered from last year)
Wow, sorry the pictures are so large. Let's try another...
Fuschia, love the color combination!
Can't recall name of this one
Caladium...can you tell my theme is red and purple?
good pics, shook. what kind of camera did you get?
Beautiful pics, Shook!!! I so wish I had a good camera, but I'm too much of a cheapie to pay the required price for one!
And I personally liked the big pictures....
Great pictures & beautiful flowers!

Shook, Whatever camera you got it took great pics. Colors are nice and vibrant
great pictures Shook, clear, vibrant & focused! Ditto, what kind of camera did you get?
Your mystery plant is achillea, a form of yarrow. Beautiful isn't it.
Oh dear, I only know that it's a cannon. DH bought it (he's the photographer in our family). Some of the coloring in the shots look like Andy Warhol's psychedelic paintings. Must have been the wrong setting.

Loved each and every one of them, Shook! Your mandavilla plant made it through your PA winter? Is it in a container?
Your new camera takes great pics! I don't mind the large pictures either.

SSTR, the mandevilla is in a pot. I cut it back in the fall, brought it in, and put it in front of a south window. It looked pathetic all winter, but is full and thick now!
Very pretty flowers and great new camera, enjoy it!!! I love Mandevillas, my neighbor always has them on his front porch.
How do you 'overwinter' them? I once brought in a plant from outside and shortly thereafter, I saw two crawling caterpillars in my kitchen. I freaked out and took the plant back outside & left to die. (Yes, I felt very guilty)
How do you make sure you got rid of all the overwintering random bugs and possibly their EGGS? What do you do to insure no bugs are 'overwintered' in the pot as well?
Very pretty, I just love seeing closeups...my favorite for flowers.

Wavee, I treated it with Bonide systemic insecticide. I think that took care of any random pests since I didn't see anything on it all winter.
Great pictures. great flowers. Great colors.
