Zilker Botanic Gardens, Austin, TX

Our trip to Austin was HOT and DRY, and the gardens were showing it ... the best looking flowers in the entire garden were the water lilies and lotus flowers. I kind of wished that my feet were in the water too!

Photo shoot in a few hours

Mike and poki are heading into Austin to go to Zilker Gardens again to take picures! Be on the look out for more pics soon. You know that last time we went to Zilker we got RAINED OUT - you know, we could use a little rain! LOL!

I'm glad to be up again

I've been sick in bed most of the week, with a severe Viral infection in my throat. I went to the doctor on Tuesday afternoon, and she ran a Strep culture, but it came back negative. Today - Friday - is the first day that I have even considered staying up! Believe me - 4 1/2 days in bed is NO TREAT!
I'm constantly "working in my head" on my album from our vacation! Today I created a page for a section I'm calling "Secret Gardens." Ocracoke was blooming beautifully - I took picture of the flowers around town almost everyday! Here is the page (thus far) that will be the beginning of the garden section of the album.

My first vacation layout ...

I have finally done my first layout from our vacation - one of my favorite pix. I guess you can tell that I didn't take it, since I am in it! Thanks, Pat, for standing behind MY camera and shooting these shots for us ... I really like them!

Updates to blog

I am in the process of creating a mailing list of people who visit this blog and would like to get updates to let you know when there are new pictures. So far, the names on the list are customers who have clicked through from my poki's projects e-mails that I send from my business, or people who have told me or e-mailed me about the blog.
If you would like to be on my update list, e-mail me and I will add you to the list, so that I can easily send everyone an update when I add more pictures.

I'm going to start my scrapbook this week ...

I hope to have some quality time at my computer this week, to start my scrapbook ... it will take uninterrupted time to get it done, and my only "out of house" plans this week include a delivery trip to Copperas Cove this morning. Can't wait to get started!
