Playing With The New Camera...


I bought my husband a puzzle for Christmas...the puzzle inside the box was not the puzzle pictured on the box. Didn't take these four long to figure it out though. (Cool coffee table huh? the top lifts up and we love it)
I believe this is the 4th or 5th cake I have received in my 47 years!

27 degrees this morning--not warming up much today. Rain coming again Thursday and Friday. This may be the third wettest December on record! The majority of my plants are doing okay. I did cover the Poinsettias, Bromeliad and the Rex Begonia. How's your weather?

Happy Birthday Darla!!! Your pictures look great. How did you write that on the picture? Is it something with your camera! 27 degrees in Fl.? That is unreal. It is in the 20's here too. It is so cold.

You are doing great with that new camera Darla! It's always hard when your birthday is so close to Christmas. My son's birthday is on Christmas Day. When he was little, I would tell him how lucky he was to have the same birthday as Jesus!

Susie said...

Suppose to be sunny and about 50 degrees. Hope you have a good day!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I think that we are now the same age. I can't remember, I am always forgetting how old I am. Comes in very handy at times.

We have had the most unusual and beautiful frosty, cool, but SUNNY weather ever to imagine. And in Decemeber? Unheard of.

What kind of camera?

Happy Birthday. I received a new camera for Christmas, too. I haven't taken too many shots with it yet. Still learning. It was zero degrees this morning with very little wind, not too bad. I really enjoy your blog!

Brrrrrrrrrrr. Cold and snowy here in the Buckeye state. But 27 degrees in Florida just does not register in my brain somehow.

Happy, Happy Belated Birthday Darla!

I see you are enjoying your new camera.It took wonderful pictures of the birds.

Dorothy said...

Hi Darla,
I'm glad you got a cake! I love those decorated ones with all that sugary icing! Those are good pictures you made with your new camera!! Have fun with it!!! How about that coffee table!!! That would be great!!!

George said...

Happy Belated Birthday, I'm glad to see that you are out practicing with that new camera. It's very cold up here in Tennessee. Unfortunately we don't have any flowers left to protect.

Grace Peterson said...

Darla~~ HAPPY BIRTHDAY, dear friend! Your cake looks yummo. I haven't received too many birthday cakes either. Funny [ironic] how that works. And funny [strange] how that puzzle wasn't the one pictured on the box. It looks like everyone had fun though. And you're having fun with your camera, aren't you? 27 degrees? If this keeps up the USDA will have to change your hardiness zone!

I'm glad you're a Granny Fan! Was your birthday at Xmas time?

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...
