Summer (Winter)


, originally uploaded by escapehelicopter.

I managed to get Jenny's Orchid to bloom again... I trimmed off the original flower stem and waited and waited - and this little one has grown and now flowered... For an Orchid not living in ideal conditions, I'm impressed. Today is the first day of summer. To those north of the Equator: Happy Summer Solstice Day!

(For those south of the Equator: Happy Winter!)

Sigrid - Thanks! I took about 20 and this one was just right...

It's a great camera - the best camera for the money I've ever bought. Just a Nikon D40 Digital SLR. I love it.

Almafuerte - Thank you for the reminder! I corrected the post so as not to be so Northern-centric!

Happiest of Winters to you and your family!

Woah, did you see the bike naming poll? A tie between Sleipnir and Winston with only one day to go! What's going to happen?
