Note: The second two photos actually were taken in the garden gift shop, so I'm not sure if they're orchids or not.
I took tons of pictures and I may add more later. These photos were taken with a Canon EOS 40D. None of them are edited.

It turned out we were in the perfect spot. The geese came to us! They got so close we could have reached out and touched them.
While we were there, the fountain light switched on, making the scene even prettier. There were so many ducks and geese. Here are a few favorites. None of the photos are edited and it was dark. It was after all, 5 p.m.

Okay, this being a Sunday, I obviously didn't take a photo of my coworker, Paul Hackbarth. However, today is his birthday and he mentioned that he wanted to be one of my photos of the day, so I thought today would be a good day. Honestly, I didn't take one single photo today anyway, so in less than a month, I already broke my own rules. But, it was Paul who told me that... the best page designs break the rules. I'm sure that can apply to this somehow. Anyway, here, Paul checks out a camera at the Photojournalism Hall of Fame. I love how confused he looks in this picture. So hats off to the guy who has to put up with me every day at work; I know it's not always easy. Happy 27th Paul!

Mary, holding baby Jesus, looked beautiful in the Catholic church courtyard this evening. They were hard to photograph since I was losing light so fast. Dang winter. This photo was taken with my Fugifilm FinePix Z30.

The other day, while going through yarn, Gary asked if he could just cut it and keep it, but it had 15 rows of multicolor on one side and only 11 on the other. I at least wanted to even it out. So, I headed to Michael's and they had the exact same Red Heart multicolor yarn.
I added the last few rows to the uneven side and called it finished. G swears that he loves it because the blankets are never long enough to cover his feet. This photo was taken before I cut off the extra strings. Also, you can't see how ridiculously long it is, but I bet it's probably at least 8 feet long. Maybe someday I will be motivated to add some more, but I don't really like all the stripes, so probably not.
And, finishing that put me in the mood to finish up a few other things like this scarf, which I actually did on a Nifty Knitter months ago. If you're wondering why the strings on the end are all curly it's because I took apart another project and reused the string. They will uncurl when I wash it... I think. And I'll even out the strings then.
Even during the cold winter months, this cactus is thriving. I can't wait to see how awesome he this guy looks in the summer! This photo was taken with my Fugifilm FinePix Z30.

I took some really cool photos today, but for some reason, I seemed to like this hay photo the best. I can't really put my finger on it. This photo was taken with my Fugifilm FinePix Z30.

The sunset at dusk created a beatuiful backdrop for the bridge over the Missouri River. The colors reflected in the river. This photo was taken with my Fugifilm FinePix Z30 and edited in Picnik.
