june 27 henchick flower

June 27 – Long ago, David planted hens and chicks (the succulent) in the front planter bed.  The past few years, I’ve noticed they bloom in late June.  This year I planned on good pictures.  My past ones aren’t as good, I don’t think.  However, one thing this project is doing for me is getting my already good eye better.  I’m very pleased with so many of my photos this year, and it keeps getting better.  I should have expected it.  One thing I have learned is that daily practice of anything makes a skill that much better.  For me it’s been knitting and photography.  It makes me see that yes, I could actually acquire these other skills I want – I just have to do them a little every day.
