|Jewelweed in Ruby and Emerald|
|Arctur African Attempts to Stretch|
My awesome little daisies again. These are African daisies and I find it amazing how many varieties of African daisies there are out there - all of these have white petals and purple centers. My best guess, given the pointed petals is that this is an Arctur African Daisy. But if someone out there is a better horticulturist, feel free to correct me.

|On First Reflection|
And, of course, my (sort of) first water lily of the year. Water lilies are one of my favorite flowers. I only count this as 'sort of' because it's in a garden show. But I suspect that when I start getting out the the Lincoln Park Lily Pond in the next month or so or the Botanical Garden when the tulips start coming up, I'll start finding some that are working their natural cycle.
Okay, that's it for that show. Last week I was in Nashville, Tennessee and we took my 15 month old nephew to the zoo. Nashville, like most other zoos, has some brilliant set-ups for some of their animals - like the outdoor meerkat exhibit with a cluster of babies! - and some that are just awful and unshootable - like the red panda who spent most of her time pressed up against the corner of the glass grooming. Those shots and a discussion of metering coming soon!
