Red Berries

I am in awe of everything that comes up in our flower beds. The most special are the plants that surprise me. I have no idea what this or where it came from. What a sec...I think maybe I got it from my father-in-law a few years ago. I made the mistake of planting it in the hosta bed around the big oak tree in the back yard.
My father-in-law calls it some kind of hosta. I looked it up once but for the life of me I can't seem to come up with its name at the moment. Does anyone out there in blog land have a clue what it might be?

There are a bunch of Tuesday's this time around. Come check them out. It is always fun, interesting and very entertaining.

Skinny Minnie

I have been trying to learn more about my camera because we are going to my Dad's fishing camp in Canada via Niagara Falls and I want to be able to get some awesome shots. I have been asking everyone that I know who takes great pictures how they do it. I am reading the book and watching the special video Mark got me. I am making some progress but I want them to be so awesome.I was sitting on the porch with Mark a few nights ago and this poor little skinny robin wanted so bad to get in the birdbath. I guess we were making too much noise talking. She just looked at us for a few minutes and then flew across the street. Not bad for a first try, I'd say.

Please visit the other Sunday's to see what they have in store for you.
