...where it all looked as lovely as ever!
The gardens are nestled at the base of Mt. Cheam...which had a fresh dusting of snow this past week...making for a most beautiful backdrop.
I was expecting to find a lot of oranges, golds and browns at this time of the year...
...and was surprised by purples, blues and yellows.
The butterflies and bees seemed unaware that summer is over...and were out in full force.
Sunshine...quietness...a potpourri of scent and a splash of colour...
...it was a peaceful Sunday afternoon stroll.
As for the camera...the new one is still in the box. Yes...I purchased a new camera...but unpacked it and noticed the instruction manual was missing. I'm not real good at 'winging it'...and wouldn't think of using a new camera without my textbook nearby. I returned it to the store and explained my problem to the sales associate...only to discover that the instructions now come on a disk. He assured me that I could print them off. Hmmm. I'm still wondering how this is all going to work! I can't see myself carrying around a full-sized binder with my letter-sized sheets of instructions from the Canon people. Then again...I could just carry a laptop with me when I go hiking...just to be sure I will know how to use my camera. I don't think so! Is it asking too much to have a printed manual with the camera?
For now...the camera remains in the box...while I consider my options.
Have a great day...
