I love photographing flowers , gardens, and the southern countryside. Digital flower photography by annalooper.com is my sidekick on most days like the zinnias above but I can get serious with my photography when an article calls for it.

You all need to be getting excited because I finally feel well enough to start writing my articles again. Let the happiness meter register pleasantly appealing. I have a farmstead lined up to photograph soon as the weather allows and the sun is not shinning too harsh.

This is my favorite digital flower picture of the whole year!  Beautiful photography by me..yea…me…one of my favorite subjects.

I think the nandina helps make this one of my favorite photos this season.

My Robin’s Egg blue garden bench just outside my morning room door. I can see this decorated garden area just outside as I sit in my morning room. This is the first year for this area and it will mature over time as I add more plants of interest.

My front porch is always the awe and love of passer bys as they wish they were sitting in my swing admiring the landscaping. I know this is bragging but I designed my home with porches being a big part of the lifestyle. It will be decorated in Autumn.

There are many crepe myrtles in my yard and these two little dark pink specimens are on the not-so-traveled side of my home.
