This is one of my favorite bushes in my yard. (I used to know the name of it but I've forgotten it.) This time of year, it blooms so beautifully, I had to take a few pics of it. I adjusted the color a tad and cropped it a little. I'm fairly pleased with the result.
Since we rescued Floyd, we don't know his exact age. We know that when BTRNC found him on the streets of Winston-Salem in Jun of 2010, the vet who checked him out said he was about a year and a half old at that point. The girls desperately wanted him to have a birthday to celebrate so we arbitrarily chose March 20 for him. So after Delaney's conference today, we went to Pet Smart and picked out a few new toys for him. He came home and immediately started chewing on his stuffed "Happy Birthday" elephant. Happy 3rd Birthday Floyd.
I'm a mother of 2 girls living in NC. I've dabbled in photography on and off but really this is just for fun
