Blooming!

Here are some photos my daughter and i took of the blooms around the house here. The house plants can definitely tell it is coming on Spring! We took these photos with my brand new camera- a Canon Power Shot SX 10 IS... I absolutely LOVE it (so does my daughter). Now i just have to sit down and learn how to USE it! There will be no more blaming the camera for bad photography....oiy...The pressure is on folks!

What a pleasure it is to share space with these lovely plants!

Just beautiful! I adore your orchids. My mother used to grow cymbidiums, but I haven't tried orchids myself. Looks like we have a similar xmas cactus. Mine is in bloom as well, such vibrant pink flowers! Nothing like fresh blooms to brighten the day. Congratulations on the new camera - have fun:)
