Photography In My Flower Gardens

I’m not a professional photographer but I wanna bee DSCF6241  I just love nature and stunning photos so I’m always snapping shots. I have a decent camera but I do not know how to apply all it has to offer me. Kinda like my blog theme, I’m still trying to figure it out to.

I won’t have names for some blooms because I just don’t remember and looking them up is going to take a while so for now enjoy the color and variety along with a few really neat close-ups of pretty bugs.

until the day I decided to separate my dogs from each other. My smaller terrier Shadow was getting too roughed up in battles with Trooper my new Rottweiler. Trooper wasn’t aggresive but Shadow was bent on proving he was pack leader and would continually start a scrap…he never won and would end up beat up so I put up a fence in my front yard and settled him into his new home.

  When we bought our home the front was a hodgepodge of dirt and scrappy plants so we added grass and I put in a pond. Shadow was just a small dog, how much damage could he really do other than wear a strip along the fence yapping at people as they walked by.
