and now for something completely different...



I thought I would take a little break from the QAL, and post physostegia or "obedient plant." These are a reliable late summer bloomer for me and (yippee) the deer don't eat them. :)

Stunning photo, love the play of light. They are just starting to bloom in my garden.

Okay, of course, this is a lovely photo.

Next, I love the title of this post - heh, heh, heh! I have inside jokes on the inside of this joke. =]

Also, I am really glad to know that the deer don't like them!

AND, thank you so super much for that link about lenses and aperture. I already had a good framework of understanding from my book; so, it was a great read!!!! It really filled in some gaps in my understanding - BIG gaps! It was just wonderfully helpful! I think you get the idea that I learned a lot.

Thanks for your encouragement!

Love, Katy

Oh, how beautiful Mary. I love how you captured the light through the petal. Looks a little like foxgloves.
