Mexican Petunia's


Our Mexican Petunias have gone wild with all the heat and humidity these past few weeks, there were dozens of them calling my name.  I took these with my Canon Pocket camera, while waiting 3 weeks for my DSLR to return home.


I am going through my old CD's that are full of photos from 2002 - 2004. In 2005 I discovered external hard drives. I have a drawer full of CD's about 100 I think. This is a flower from 2004 taken with my tiny Kodak Easy Share. The T1i  is home, THEY said it needed new batteries. I bought 2 new batteries  and we shall see what we shall see...

Hello Sandra, your flowers are lovely. Ours flowers have to keep being watered, the heat and humidity is doing a number on them.
