new camera

dicentra spectabilis,alba.

tomatoes only just gone into growbags,bought them as plugplants an inch high

some of this years baskets,starting to really look nice

the new boarder under mums bedroom window,was full of nerines.spread everywhere.birds keep pulling the bark mulch into path lol

the other new boarder under lounge window.was full of day lillies,like the nerines had spread,and really are just leaves for most of year.again the bark mulch is getting moved.

that clematis montana,growing up and along the front of sunner house,also goes along the side,over 15 foot of growth in one year.

my rhododendrun,i love of my favourite flowers.i have to grow it in a pot as i dont have acid soil in the garden.

the 2 go together well.see what i mean about that clematis?

i love my new camera,fuji finepix,10 megapixel,and it has a view finder as well as back screen,if,like me,you are used to using a 35mm SLR film camera,to be able to use the view finder,see what you are taking is great.the last 2 were taken using the macro close up,with the telephoto lens it makes a really good camera,comfortable to hold and LOOKS like a you enjoyed a few of this years flowers,lucy by the sound of it you will beat me on the tomatoes this year if yours is coming into flower.just hope mine taste better than last year.should do,using gardeners delight.enjoy your gardens,take care all.

Hi Mort! I LOVE THE CLEMATIS!!! It looks like a lace covering. I'm so glad you got your camera, I have a Kodak megapix, but my last camera was the Fuji Finepix 7.0 and I loved it! Too bad it fell into the lake and is now "lost at sea"! I hope I didn't leave any silly shots on it for the person who finds it, lol!
Take care,

Hi Mort, beautiful, just great. You make mine look sick but I have a blossom, on my tomato plant. Would you believe I worked in a camera store long before the sophisticated cameras came out. I have always let to many settings make me afraid. I would give my right arm for your rohdendrum (SP) Way to go Mort.

Frances said...

Your flowers are beautiful, Mort. I am really impressed you are able to have such a beautiful garden, since you have so many medical problems. You are doing great. And there is nothing better than fresh tomatoes right from your own plants. Thank you for sharing them with us with your photos.

Thanks Mort. Lovely pictures- what a lovely garden you have!

Pamela said...

That Clematis needs to work it's way over to my house! That would look so good in my yard! Loved all of your flowers. That Rhododendrun can make it's way over the pond, too! You have a beautiful garden, Mort. Well done!
Love, Pam

Lucy said...

Mort, thank you for the comment on my blog. You are so special to me that when you say I did ok, I know I must have. I will never forget when I first sawq your blog when it was called a Journal, I said I wanted to live where ever all those flowers were. You do so well at doing all that and I know it is not always easy. Your USA mom

I must be doing something wrong-my clematis are slow growing--never saw anyone plant right from the bag of soil like that-that is a good idea.Tonight we plant our seeds and onions and soon will get the plants out in the garden.Had heavy frost two nights but it isn't supposed to anymore now.
