Spring, glorious Spring

Temperatures in Nashville this week hovered between 65-70 degrees, so Spring is in full force. The buds on the trees are starting to get fat and daffodils are everywhere. I love it! I only wish that we had daffodils at our house. I will be sure to plant a ton in the Fall.

We went to get some plants yesterday and started planning and executing our garden for our front beds. We're going to have to get some landscaping work done in the back; right now it's just boring old lawn. I'm not one of those people who requires half an acre of lush lawn to feel like my life is complete; I'd rather have a spectacular garden. I definitely want to have a small orchard of apple trees and vegetable and herb gardens. I'd also like to put some river birch trees along the side of the property. Those are my main requirements; the rest I shall leave in the hands of a landscape architect.

Anyway, here is a picture of some daffodils in the parking lot of the nursery. I took this in manual "tungsten" mode...whatever that is.

Off to dinner at Radius10 with my sweetie and Becky.

Tungsten means it adjusts the "white balance" assuming your lighting source is artificial (I think it adjusts for the light from incandescent bulbs). The colors are adjusted to look accurate under those lighting conditions. I think ....

Ah, I knew you would know. You are my source on these kinds of things.
