My camera is here!

My new camera is here! I don't know anything about photography yet, but I've been having fun playing around with it trying to learn the basics.

  3. Yay just in time for your dad's birthday! How are you liking it? Your artichokes look AWESOME! Did they take the full 6 months to mature?

    1. I'm loving it and I'm so glad I got it before this weekend. I'm sure I'll post some shots from my dad's birthday celebration. He's such a ham and will love to post for photos.

      Thanks for all the tips! Our artichokes were planted the year we bought the house, when you still lived here lol. They just keep coming back! They are more abundant this year than ever because of the rain. Considering they are about 4 dollars a pop at the store, I feel like we're saving loads of money. I wish you still lived here and I'd give you some.

    2. What!? I'm jealous! But I must say your picture inspired tonight's dinner. I bought 4 humongo artichokes! I wish I was still there--I'd be happy to help you unload some :)
