I visited one of my friends gardens' today.

As her 5 year old boy was walking around the property with us, he asked me if I saw the football blooming plant .

Huh ?

He brought me to this protea shrub that was planted in early September.

It has one big beautiful flower blooming.

And it is as big as a childs football.

incredible bloom for four months later, but warrants one question at least about your zone as you announce it, from we preparing here in the frozen north for (at last and about time) our first raeal snowstorm (according to the overpaid broadcast con artists)

is Denial not just a zonal in Egypt?

I garden with wild abandon in marvelous Marin county , California. Just a hop, skip and a jump over the golden gate bridge from sassy San Francisco.

An Olympus 2040 z.

I love this little camera.
It is so versatile.
I can do point and shoot or fool around with aperature.
It has a black and white function
blow up bracketing function
color adjust built right into it,
I can choose the pixel quality - it has 4 or 5 options of quality options
and so much more.
It was relatively inexpensive in comparision to other cameras with as many options and brightness of lens.

I did several months of research before I chose this camera.
A site that came in very handy for doing this research was megapixel.com
Excellent unbiased reviews and easy to navigate site.
