i cut the blooms off and the branches sprang back up to life.

i had just gotten my new cell phone lenses and was so excited to use them!  here is the fisheye lens!  i love how it captured all the blooms.

here are some photos i snapped with the macro lens…look at that water drop!!

aren’t these petals so pretty!?!!?
image

i love seeing the veins in the petals!  is that right?  veins?
image

it’s all in the details!!!

and one last one.  just because.

i’ve been doing well so far with keeping up with watering. it was raining a lot for a week or so so i stopped watering and then there was rain in the forecast but it never rained and it didn’t really dawn on me to water so i kept wondering why there were no new buds. then i realized, DUH!!, i have to water!! so now that i’ve started watering regularly, i see new leaves forming which means new buds and new blooms are on their way!! hopefully i’ll get enough buds/blooms in the next few months so i can a)have pretty flowers in my yard and b)give you another update.
