Gardening in the Yard

I enjoying gardening in my yard. Not only do I like the flowers, but the bees do too. I have taken several photos of plants with my Nikon CoolPix 2500 digital camera. I find that, for a low cost camera it is easy to use and takes amazingly sharp pictures, especially close-ups.

The following list of my plants is a work-in-progress. The pages below describe the plant and give some photos showing what they look like in my yard.

  • Gingers (Kahili, Variegated)
  • Honeysuckles (Coral, Japanese, Trumpet lonicera sempervirens 'Magnifica' ,Winter)
  • Jasmines (Angel's Wing, Carolina, Confederate/Star, Maid of Orleans)
  • Liatris
  • Lilies (Calla)
  • Lilies (Canna)
  • Lilies (Day)
  • Roses (Don Juan, Red Ribbons)

I have also seen several other garden visitors that I have able to catch with my camera.
