Working from home has reinvigorated my wife's passion for gardening. New plants will be going to ground in the next few days. Pictures to follow.

:D Looking forward to seeing your future shots of the new additions. Looks like Cheerio will also enjoy some gardening of her own alongside your wife, since she's a natural partner to some of the activities outdoors. :)

Have fun!

Not a blooming flower from the garden but a wading submarine and the tower fully in the frame….unlike the last time. :)

Nice shot. BTW, you seem to have quite a few sub marine "creatures" in the strait. Is that routine?

Lilies in the front yard came in. Came in in clusters.

JT,
I noticed a marked difference in sharpness (due to screen size, I am sure) when I see the images on my Samsung S6 versus
my 24" ASUS HD monitor. The cell phone images seem to have more "punch". Do you find the same thing too?
BTW, neither takes away from the beauty of the flowers posted.... :D

They are gorgeous, JBTaylor. :)
The blooming lily clusters are great in perspective and the hibiscus looks like flowers are soon to be seen.

Thanks for sharing.

Sury, thank you. :)
I don't know if it's routine but we see many naval creatures Bosphorus being a busy water way.

Beautiful set Yildiz. The lavender Hydrangea is a floral eye candy.

Though they were blooming and I was capturing, I was lagging in processing them.
