yeah, i have to say that river shot is something else frog, as you said, the slide film brings out so much colour, a bit hard getting that kind of effect with digital, unless you want to photoshop the hell out of it.

Hey guys!!

Amazing photo and video thread!

You're all so clever - pollock (gorgeours sunsets and little close-up bugs), lumukanda (magnificent sunsets and effects), tinmenace (breathtakingly beautiful macro photography), mulderman (incredible dramatic macro and graphic design...clever chicken!), jeffangel (those awesome canal shots colours...LOVED the swan), garth, you're a man of many talents....loving your beautiful flowers

A special mention to planetfrog because I've got to say I LOVE your work! Your Flowers day video is just so beautiful and moving - the looks on some of those people's faces......it didn't always work, but your managed to turn SO MANY glum faces into smiles on a cold London day! Your have a wonderful face and smile yourself. Truly magnificent from beginning to end.

Thanks so much all of you for sharing your talent....and PLEASE do keep it coming!

Garth, Bougainvillea and Hibiscus. Two of my faves! Thanks so much for sharing that with me. I love them.

Our house was previously owned by an elderly lady who planted (overplanted really) only flowering plants in the yard. So, everything I have flowers, except the Maple and the Oaks. I have a massive Southern Magnolia (I borrowed the photo below from hiltonpond.org).



The flowers are often as big as a person's entire head! She'll be blooming within weeks. I see other Magnolias around town are already in the throes of blossoming.

Right now my Confederate Jasmine is blooming, and oh boy, that is just the most heavenly smell there is (that and Gardenia!).

Another tree that is quite common here is the Crepe Myrtle (photo borrowed from lakechapalagardenclub.com)



These beauties, that come in a variety of colors, flower ALL summer long. They have big heavy bushels of flowers. I have one at the end of my property, but it has been left to grown naturally so it doesn't look as good as the pruned trees. One of these days, I'll get someone to prune her.

Hey Tin, thanks for the pics and stuff..Cool as..

Yep ya can't beat gardenias and jasmine for the best fragrance around, it's the best. You must have similar growing conditions to me, because both do really well here (sub tropical), just mine are all finished as we are coming into winter. The Gardenia Florida's (presume they come from your neck of the woods with a name like that??) flower abundantly for about 6 month's and the smell becomes so thick its almost intoxicating. Love the magnolia...wow as big as person's head...thats one big flower.

The more plants the better I reck'on, less room for the weeds to grow

Only thing thats does'nt do well here is azaleas, not sure why, just never see a good one, they tend to go all sticky, and don't produce many flowers.

Garth

Intoxicating is right! But gawd, what a high!

Yes, the tropical plants like the Bird of Paradise and Banana trees do well here in a controlled environment, because we can have very intense heat and not a whole lot of rain (in between hurricanes that is!). So, they do well if watered regularly.

I keep my yard (reluctant to call it a garden!...LOL) very much Xeriscaped. Everything is drought resistant (except my sweetpotato vines...have you every planted a sweet potato?). All my plants live through intense drought and need little attention. I have a Bleeding Heart that grows up the railing at my front door, and the drier it is the more it flowers. Weird eh?



A little out of focus, but you get the idea....

HeyTin, well there ya go, i presumed that you guys would be a more sub tropical environment, sort hot and wet, but then again we seem to be heading more for a smililar climate as you as we are experiencing longer spells between rain.

Na, have not planted a sweet potato vine although I have heard of them, will have to check it out further. Bit yes on the bleeding heart, great vines, abundant flowers.

Took this pic yesterday at the local botanic gardens (was meant to be at work, but stole a couple hours..shhh..don't tell anyone)

was just a snap, caught 2 pelicans, 9 comerants & a freshwater turtle sunning themselves in the warm Autumn sun.

Great photo Garth!

The bird all the way to the right...what is that? It reminds me of a Anhinga.
