Half-way done with the week!

We planted these awhile ago and they've been fairly neglected. They've grown quite a bit since this post, and they seem to have especially flourished with the rain from the hurricane. 
 


A rainy day picture, since it's been raining a TON recently! I like the blurriness that the rain-drops gave the trees. I'm still trying to figure out what my camera can do, and what's out of it's limits.
HDR-ish style giraffe from our travels westward, recently. I think he was posing for me. :)

A flower from the conservatory that was also part of the zoo. I have no idea what kind of flower this is. Any ideas?
and then, she {snapped}

You got some good shots there! That flower is beautiful, have no idea what it is tho'. Thanks for stopping by with your sweet comment. I wish those trees could keep their flowers all year! The holly doesn't have a fragrance, but that magnolia is heavenly!
