    Cannot Do Anything Right Today..

    I have a bad head cold and seem to be sneezing all the time between that and the jolly wind it hard to get anything in focus today.

    Wanted to take a pic of the two new Louisiana Iris I bought at the Market on Sunday
    This was the best I could do

    No names of course but who cares they were so cheap potted up and blooming like crazy.





    Will try again another time with this Cattleya Orchid as a few more stem on it.



    This Local Resident Noisy Miner got very upset when I stood the Potted Orchid in its drinking water to get a pic.



    All taken with my Tamron 90mm Macro Lens..

    I shoot with Canon And Olympus Cameras

    You could be right there Cat I have never seen them really happy like the Butcherbirds that live here..
    Feeling a little better now Thanks Cat, this morning I had no voice, not the least funny when the phone rings..
    Especially when you are told your new glasses are in, and you eyes wont stop running either.

    Thanks Graeme yes its certainly Orchid time, and indeed they are a beautiful colour
    I have two different purple ones flowering.
    Then on Sunday I bought another Cattleya Orchid Yellow with Wine Lips the label states
    Looks Cream and Red to me.
