I finally bought a digital camera and thought I would try my hand at downloading a picture to this site. Here goes....

And this forum is the reason I first bought a digital camera too! Be sure to save those photos somewhere and also on a back up (DVD or portable memory, or cloud or something). Hooray for you!

Congrats! GREAT first picture...it will be nice to have the pics for yourself, too. Be sure to take pics of each hosta and save it with the name so that in the dreary winter months, you can add to the hosta alphabet activities!!!

Be careful Gary... when you only need batteries and not film you are gonna be taking a LOT more pictures ! ;)

Good job, Gary. Be sure to set the DATE correctly, so you can keep track of the development of your garden.

Now there will be no stopping you. Go on, go around the bend. You'll find that's where we are too! :)

Congratulations Gary. You are totally hooked now!

I love how you lined all your pots up, it makes the garden look nice and neat. You've given me a great idea!

Nice display - great first pic post!

RE: Finally got a camera

Maybe I have stumps on the brain these days, but I just noticed you left your stump too. And using it as a pot stand. Good for you. I had my "tall" one cut down yesterday to a short one, since it was already a hazard to myself and the hosta nearby.

Thanks for the kind words and gentle prodding. Here's a picture of the front yard's corner bed.

RE: Finally got a camera

Nice, Gary! Great mix of hostas and complimentary companions. I wish most of my neighbors' front yards looked like yours. Including mine. : )

P.S. The pair with the white margins; what are they? Thanks.

Very nice Gary and pictures are so much fun so the more you take the better ! The ones you don't like are so easy to delete and just the battery wears down . bought recharging batteries for mine and that solved that problem. I may have to get a new one soon as the shutter sometimes doesn't want to open the lens but then again, it still takes okay pictures, Maybe not super professional but not really that bad either.
Congrats anyway and have fun clicking!

Somehow, I don't think that photo was taken on 1-1-2010. REPROGRAM the date on your camera!!!! Even here were there are no freezes, hostas don't look like that on January first. OBTW, that photo is beautiful.

Don, the center hosta is a Sagae, while the smaller one to the left is a Zippity Do Dah. These are just unfurling now and are not at their full size yet.

Gary, simply spectacular, especially for New Years Day. You are like me, the date keeps getting messed up anyway...so why bother.

RE: Finally got a camera

Jon, I took a series of pictures the first day that I got the camera, before I figured out how to reprogram the date. I finally figured that out, or at least I think I have. Any pictures that I post from that first series will be January hostas. Oh, if it could only be true!

RE: Finally got a camera

Gary,

If it doesn't set and reset itself automatically it is on the wrong time and date at my house.
