Hey, hey, this is heady stuff, finally (I hope) being able to share my picture. I do have to learn to carry my camera with me at all times to catch current photo ops ... otherwise I will keep digging into my stash and I can bore you forever. This shot is of Quan Yin among the roses in bloom in my Belen backyard. Roses do very well in the high desert and they bloom from May through October. There were 14 bushes on my property when I moved in in January 2002. They were not in bloom, of course, and, boy, what a surprise come May.
