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.

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
Excellent unbiased reviews and easy to navigate site.
