We have successful macro mode shots with the new camera. Canon must have re-written their software (I mean, obviously, in five years they worked on it) because the camera chooses… different places to focus than the previous two. The previous two would almost always settle in on the center of a flower, while this one strays to outer petals. I think the results are good anyway.
I cut these daffodils on Monday when it was sunny and gorgeous. I knew rain was coming and they’d get beaten down and bedraggled outdoors and I was right. It’s another multi-day gloomy spell… a cold, wet, late spring. Oh well, the carrots and radishes and peas don’t mind, the wildflowers are coming up on schedule, and just maybe I’ll manage to grow sweet peas that blossom this year. I’ve been looking at Tasha Tudor’s Garden and feeling wistful. I suppose it’s a normal part of gardening to always want to tear out everything you’ve done and start over, right?
