New Camera!

I've been wanting a new camera now for almost two years. I finally broke down and used my 2008 tax return to buy myself a new camera. I'm so glad I did. Well worth the money! I purchased a Canon Rebel XTi SLR Digital. You would of laughed so hard at me (my boyfriend did anyways). I'm so flippin' excited!!!

The first few days.....the sun would poke out from behind the clouds and I would be running out to the garden ASAP and taking any pictures (experimenting) that looked decent.

Here's the first few pics:

One of many hot pink tulips in my garden:)

Light blushing peach flower of a Kalanchoe tubiflora succulent.

My tulips are starting to shot up green blooms which will turn to bright colors in the next couple of weeks. I so excited, this is the start of gardening season. Which is my favorite time of the year. Beautiful flowers and lots of sunshine:)

Here's my first tulip of the year!

Tulips have a special meaning for me. They were my grandfathers favorite flower. When he passed away 4 years ago. The family tried to find tulips for his funeral and during that time of the year the tulips were finished blooming. We could only find a few. So to make up for it, I bought tulips for my garden so every year he would have tulips to see.
Here's a few pics of my tulips from years past. Enjoy!!
