Flowerpower: planting on my balcony

When spring arrives, one of the things I’m looking forward to is to plant flowers on my balcony. It is always fun to do that. I don’t have green hands in particular, but still I love it. What I do have, on the other hand, is green pants and suitable to use when planting.

I decided not to put flowers in my flower boxes hanging outside the balcony. Instead I bought a new zink bucket and borrowed a small zink bucket from my mum. In addition I have two small flower pots that I bought at IKEA last year. All in all, enough flowers for me.

When I was done with the flowers I remembered I had to take out my furniture as well. I had totally forgotten! When I came down in the basement to find the furniture, I got a surprise. I had also forgotten that I’d bought new furniture last year – they were not brown and old anymore, but white and new. That made me really happy.

I was really satisfied when the furniture was out on the balcony, the table cloth was laid out and the flower pots where set in place.

Of course I wanted to document the planting. I love flowers and I love photographing, so it was only natural.

Spring has sprung (visiting the Botanical Garden)

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged anything now. It’s the story of my blog life, sadly. I either forget to blog or don’t have anything to blog about. Yesterday I knew the weather would be nice, so I decided to take my camarea out for a walk. I need to take more photos with my lovely D7, in stead of just play around with my phone and Instagram.

Spring is here and wanted to capture it. It so beautiful to see things come to life; trees starts to get green / blossom, flowers pop up and the world looks brighter. I decided to go to the Botanical Garden. I’ve been there before this time a year, and it’s beautiful there!

I left for the Botanical Garden right after work ended. Since I’ve recently decided to become more ‘sporty’ I walked all the way. It’s not far and I thought I could take some photographes on my way. This is what I captured:

These are the photographes from the Botanical Garden:

I’m still getting used to my new camera. I try, I fail and I learn. It hasn’t really sunk in how big my photos are now (in pixels and MB) – not until yesterday at least. While photographing, I suddenly get a message saying that my memory card is full. My memory card isn’t the biggest, I know that (1 GB), but with my other camera I could take a lot more photos than I can now. Now it takes less than 200 photos to fill up my card. I was like ‘but, but, but… I’m not finished here! aarrrghhh!!!’ I had to go through my photos and delete the ones I thought wouldn’t make the cut, based on the tiny LCD screen on my camera, to make room for a few new ones. Not ideal. I was pretty annoyed and

As I left the Botanical Garden I made two promises to myself: 1) Buy a bigger memory card 2) Go back to the Botanical Garden and shoot more.

I haven’t bought a new memory card yet. My plan is to do that this weekend. I do have been back at the Botanical Garden, I went there today too. Today I’d brought an extra memory card, just in case.

There is too many photos to fit them all into one blog post. So todays photos, you’ll get them later.

Stay tuned!
