Thank you Chris! I'm glad to hear that you're getting hooked on flower photos.
It's taken a while for me to learn what they are, and I'm still learning. I'm lucky though - I volunteer at one of my favorite gardens. I have been taking photos there for many years. I met the superintendent of the property a number of years back and asked what I could do to help. He told me about Wednesday volunteer mornings there; as soon as I stopped working I started volunteering in the garden. We work Wednesdays from 9 to noon, usually starting in March and going through November. Today was the last garden volunteer day of the season.
There are others like me who don't know much about the plants and there are quite a few master gardeners too. This gives me a wonderful opportunity to ask questions and learn!
