A Second Chance

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   A Second Chance
A Second Chance
After this Easter Lily had died off my wife planted it in the garden-for an experiment. This was the result a few days ago.

Sometimes plants can be revived and do well outside! We had a poinsettia that was dying after Christmas. We planted it outside in the Spring, and it thrived every year by taking it indoors for the winter and planting it outside in summer. It even bloomed every year!

Beautiful capture of this lily. The DOF is exceptional. Great tip on planting those withering gifts. Congratulations also on your 2 finalists! I love the white flowers and details and both.

Beautiful presentation Patrick and glad it survived for you. Canada was beautiful but my computer got broken and my 24 to 105 favorite lens froze and both are now in repair. Can only post old non processed photos and comment occasionally on office computer. Catching up slowly.
