Changes

 First, if someone had told me when I was in my thirties that I would one day be taking pictures of flowers, I would have scoffed.  At that time, I couldn't believe people took photos of their DOGS,  let alone their flowers!
 OK, one dog picture, but why more?  They still look the same year after year.
 But here I am photographing flowers.  And not so adept at it either. The pic above looks like the bush behind the flower is part of the bloom.
 When I bought this little plant from Wild Thyme and Gifts, it was about 8 inches tall, including the plastic container.  It is about 3 feet tall now.  She is a Papaver Venus, double fringe!  I love fringe!
 Every day she grows her stem in different contortions.
 She opened slowly, taking her sweet time.  (I know. I am anthropomorphizing.)
 I thought this was the full bloom...
 But this one is amazing!
If she has any other tricks up her sleeve, I'll add another photo!

That plant is so different. I was thinking about that the other day.
Here I am taking pictures to blog, like I never photographed my meals before.

When I was in my 20's, someone DID tell me to stop lying around in the sun, and I scoffed.

Oh boy, do I EVER wish I would have listened.
