For a while we had some great photo posts going. I don’t recall seeing one lately so here goes. I took some backyard shots yesterday on a beautiful, sunny New Orleans afternoon. How about some nice wintery shots from the northerners?

My favorite shot from yesterday is the one below, and the slideshow of the rest is here.

Nice post Charlie, Thanks for the photos …beautiful views of N.O. greenery ! Our silly Azaleas are blooming now but we are supposed to get a hard frost in the next few days… much for early spring buds !

GMman, those are great! It looks like you had that deer eating out of your hand.

Nothing like a good Christmas cactus! I lost mine last year in a rare freeze and haven’t replaced it yet.

I didn’t know you were a photographer Charlie. Great pictures and beautiful flowers! I wanted to post some too, but I still can’t figure out that photo bucket or flickr as far as that goes. Spent 45 minutes trying to figure it out. I’m done.

Thanks, Janice. You know you can post photos directly into your post from your computer. Just click on the “img” button at the top, then click on “choose file” to browse to the photo on your computer. Then you click the “insert this image” button, and your photo will be uploaded. You can click the green “preview” button to make sure it’s there, and then post your reply.
