Re: Spring pics

Thanks Chris,
Somehow it is difficult to show true blues.  The pic of the lilac looks
lavender, but it really is a sky blue. Even the one of the Omphalodes shows
a slight lavender touch, but it is a rich blue.  Woody actually looks a
little better in the picture.

Glad to hear you were able to get some of your new plants in.  It'll be
awhile before I can plant anything.  The trip to Old Westbury sounds grand.
I used to shoot with a box camera.  It made such nice BIG negatives.  I
think you can get comfortable with anything you use regularly, especially if
it gives good results.

neIN, Z5
