Our Gatekeeper & My Birthday Present
this little guy keeps tabs on all the comings & goings to our backyard. he's not the first to hold this post, and judging by the 2 chipped feet (that you can't see), i'm not sure how long he'll last. we'll enjoy him while he's here though.
this lantana grows by my mailbox. i tried for 3 summers to find something that would thrive in full sun in the south, and last year finally had success. this just grows & grows and is drought resistant, which is perfect for those days when i don't feel like dragging the hose all the way down the driveway!
about my present....i bought myself a Canon Rebel XSi for my birthday last month, and i am loving it! i still have LOTS to learn, but everyday i feel a bit more comfortable with it. i'm probably driving everyone i know crazy with it, but i have always had a photography obsession and now it's in full force! i am finding out that having one of these just makes me want more!
