Hello again! It's Autumn.


Hi again Everyone!
It's been a long time since I posted because I forgot I had started this. Silly me! But over the summer my succulents have gone wild. Me too! Lol. I planted and planted and planted. My husband dug out a new bed in the front of the house for me so in the spring I will have a whole new area to play in! Yeah, I am so excited about this. My backyard was actually running out of room. Yes, hard to believe.

I finished planting my planter in the front yard on the side of the house. Here is a shot of part of it. I am really proud of it. Since this shot was taken about a month ago it has already started to grow and grow. Can't wait for spring for it to really take off. Just hope the frost does not get anything.

Also my camera (Canon G7) has been going on the blink. So had to buy a new one. I am graduating to a SLR. I got a Canon EOS Rebel XSI/XS. Can't wait to get started using it. I am reading SLR for dummy's and have to read the manual also. But it was in my price range and felt really good in my hand. Easier to hold than a point and shoot. So get ready for some even better pictures to come.
I really love Echeveria's. Some of you know them as Hens and Chicks. There are so many kind of them you wouldn't believe it. They are all so beautiful. I have dedicated a whole set on flicker to them. You should take a look. I have not posted all of them and of course I don't have everyone but I think they are my favorite succulent. Here is the link to my flickr Echeveria set. http://www.flickr.com/photos/sweetstuff1957/sets/72157605707179255/

Well that's about enough for now. I hope you all are having a wonderful time this autumn looking at all the beautiful colors. Till next time, Enjoy!
