I discovered something about myself in the past few weeks: I like plants. I know, I know, not that big of an epiphany, but I have never really had a houseplant before. Now I have three. Here's a quick rundown (don't expect any actual plant names, though - I'm not that dedicated).
This guy is probably my favorite - if only because of the pot he's in (apparently in my head, plants are masculine). It's an antique bean pot that my grandmother gave me. The blue is beautiful - I tried so hard to capture it, but I'm not that great with the camera yet. Out of the forty or so shots I took of it, this was the closest I could get to the actual color. It's actually a bit brighter. I do feel a little bad for putting a plant in an antique bean pot - I should be preserving it instead, right? - but this way, it's out and I'm enjoying it. That counts for something, right? Currently, it lives on our buffet.

Ok, moving on.
Beth. Isn't it cute? This one currently lives on our bar, so it's close by
And that's all for the plants. I do have a couple other shots for you, though. Remember the birdhouse housewarming gift I talked about here? It found a home!
I also got some pretty flowers from my husband - and they served as good models for my adventures into non-automatic settings with the Canon. Observe.
I don't really know what I did - but I like it!
