TWIN ROSES TO TOUCH OUR HEARTS TODAY!

작년
Another weekend is finally here, although I still work 7 days a week, but it is a little slower start to the day on the weekends. I have been very busy and will be again this weekend. As many of you know Deborah and I take care of disabled adults in our home. In April is our annual review when the government comes in a looks over all our paperwork and make sure we are doing it. It takes weeks to get everything in order. I got through it last April (with some help from my daughter), which was the first time I got everything in order by myself. My wife was in a rehabilitation hospital during the time I was preparing. One of the people we care for died the week before the reviewer arrived. She needed a lot of care during her last month. Since then I got behind on some of the paperwork because I was so tired after March and April. I normally do not allow myself to get behind on anything. Once this review is finished I should be able to stay caught up through to next year.


So why am I explaining all this? I just want to let everyone know that when I do not get to every promotion post on my Discord Channel it is because of this.

Winter is still hanging on here. On the positive side we have had a couple of days above freezing for highs. Some of the Spring birds are returning, which is always nice to see. Spring is getting closer and I am ready for it.

I think I have a nice selection of flower photographs, along with a few others to share with you today. I think you will enjoy this first photograph, of "twin" roses. I took the the photograph at the point of the bloom that I think is the best looking...

IMG_4142-S.JPG

I took this next photograph when I took the trip to my rental property. This was taken at the end of the private road where the rental place is. It may still be winter, although it was so beautiful I had to capture this view:

IMG_4219-s.JPG

Because I am looking forward to Spring I thought I would share a photo of part of my garden. This is my potato patch. I planted them 2 months late because of the chaos I was going through in early Spring. I ended up with one of the most productive patches and have had plenty of potatoes for the winter and have shared some with my daughter and granddaughter.

IMG_3120=S.JPG

Because of our short growing season and the fact that fresh greens for salads can be expensive in the store, I have a room that I grow salad greens in most of the winter. Here is a fresh plate of salad (my breakfast meal).

IMG_4221-S.JPG
The cucumber is the only thing I did not grow myself. I do have some cucumber plants in small pots that are ready to go into larger pots. These I will move into my small greenhouse when I get it cleaned up and heated. Then I will be eating cucumbers many weeks before they can be planted outside.


Here is one of my Dahlias that i grow in containers. I am sure I posted some photos of this one last Summer. I may try and pick up another variety this year:

IMG_3442-S.JPG

For my last photograph I decided on my pink African Violet. I recently shared my blue one. I like each of the colors equally. I am "keeping my eye open" for another variety, but have not been to a garden center yet this year.

IMG_4232-s.JPG

This brings us to a close of another weekend's post. As always I hope each person finds something that they enjoy.


The Discord server for @r2cornell continues to evolve. The invite link seems to change periodically so as of this writing this is the current invite link: https://discord.gg/4SwNr4. We continue to come up with a post-of-the-day, when we can. The post is chosen from those listed in our Post-Promotion section of the server. The Post-of-the-day winner earns a 100% upvote from me. Then the best comment receives a 50% upvote. Check the rules on the server channel. You have to leave an introduction in the appropriate section to be eligible. I am impressed with the support everyone is giving each other. Come pay us a visit. If the invite link does not work let me know and when I reply to your comment I will paste a new one for you.


I am using a Canon EOS Rebel T5 for all of these photographs, except where noted.

Upvotes and resteem are always welcome. In the event anyone wants to use one of my photos please ask and give me credit.


I do have something I wanted to touch on and maybe someone can clarify it for me. I have many who leave comments and upvote, but their vote is zero. They sometimes upvote their own comment as well and it too amounts to zero. So my question or concern is: does doing this just keep your VP (Voting Power) down?

I am the mind that it does not help you. I believe that following (in this case me), is more important. I recently stopped following those who are not following me. Increasing your followers is part of building your presence here on Steemit. There may come a time when I may reply to comments, although if you are not following me I may not upvote, or upvote at a lower rate. With 290 comments on last weekend's post I have to spread my VP out so it it is a decent upvote. That last post I hit number one for the most comments in a day. That is a first. I usually come in in number 2 or 3 spot. So thank you to all who left comments.

NAMASTE

Good day. You have once again pleased us with beautiful photos, and this once again shows your love for nature. It's great when there is such a hobby. I can only imagine how much this beauty requires care and personal time. I am very pleased that I can always read your post, and push off from the bustle of the city. Landscape photo of snowy terrain and clouds, this is what I always sink into the soul. I love winter nature. Thank you so much for the informative publication. Good health to your wife.

Excellent review @r2cornell and I see that you are busy right now, but I am always waiting to find out how you are! Your photos are excellent as always and the flowers are excellent, the salad looks especially exotic, especially now after a long winter, it’s awesome!

·

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

I am always busy...But these bigger projects do not relax me like photography, gardening and growing flowers.

**Wow...this post is full of variety. **
The horticulture or floriculture aspect; no one can deny that its soothing and its good to eat the fruits of your labours.
You should know I love #winter pics sir. I would love to use this one in the future sir,please permit me, as I am also going to give you the credits.
For the vp questions: I believe it does keeps their vp down and reduce their Rc but most wants to show they value your post or do not know this. Thanks for asking this enlightening question.
Also, Follow-back is important on this platform.
Commenting comes naturally for a great post. Thanks for this great post sir.

·

Thank you very much. I appreciate it.

Oh yes @r2cornell, the flowers on your photos are very beautiful and especially the rose, can only admire it. It is also interesting to watch your garden, as we all have snow and I hope to start growing vegetables too soon. You are well done and constantly work, it's great!

·

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

Great post. In that year, I also had a lot of potatoes, although we plant it a lot somewhere 6 acres. My family loves potatoes cooked in any form. Thank you for the message, your flowers are beautiful

·

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

Beautiful photos of a new season of growth. It's important work that you do for others in your home.

You have very beautiful photos here. The roses caught my eye in the feed and I had to check out the post for the rest of the pictures. Kudos to you for taking care of disabled adults, I'm sure that's a hard job, and probably the paperwork involved is very cumbersome. You have quite the green thumb. We are in the last throes of winter here as well and all these beautiful pictures were just what I needed to see. Also, on your comment about upvoting for zero, I'm new to Steem, so my vote is very low - zero. I don't see the point of using that vote, it's to no one's advantage. I think, like you, commenting and following, and working on my blog will be more beneficial. I have followed you to see more of these pictures! I'm also recommending your post today to #upgage challenge #32 for it's great content.

·

Thank you very much, and thank you for visiting my blog. Welcome!

I appreciate your comment! Hopefully we will get more clarification on the voting at zero.

We have cared for disabled adults in our home for over 25 years. My entire career was working with people with disabilities.

Hello @r2cornell, nice to meet you again. I pray that your wife's deborah will always be given health by God. I'm glad you always post in the past few days. the reason is because I always like stories from your life. I always read every article that you show. and I also just commented on your activity yesterday. and today you also display some nice flower shoots. I myself like twin red roses. because red is my favorite color.

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

I am not sure why I started sharing aspects of my life, but it felt comfortable when I started, and last year around this time I was going through a lot with my wife in hospital with early stage kidney failure and on the people we care for in at the same time. Lucky my wife recovered (mostly), although the person we cared for I brought home knowing she was go to die (heart failure). She was with us 18 years. Anyway I received a lot of support during that time from followers and it helped me get through it. Now I am mostly an open book.

that's wonderful. I think you love rose bro

Sir @r2cornell, I'm learning about photography, about how to produce an interesting digital object. I see you are very good at using lenses. maybe in the other post you can share tips for beginners. This will be great for new players like me.
below is my shot, I need your thought. Thank you very much

Thank you very much, and thank you for visiting my blog. Welcome!

Here is an invite to my discord channel: https://discord.gg/4SwNr4

In reality I am just a beginner as well, but I guess I have a good eye for what I am trying to capture. I have so much to learn, but keep taking photographs. One thing I learned is to take multiple photos of the same object. I may slightly adjust lens for distance and focus, but then also light. By doing this I can choose from the best.

Some times I use photo editing software to crop the photo so unwanted things go away and to center the flower. Sometimes centering is not necessary depending on what is showing around it, and what appeals to you. I took the liberty of taking your photo and just centering it. I sometimes measure but usually I just crop what a like and it is close. I will upload what I did

·
·
·
·
·

I use photoscape on my pc. It is free. I am sure they have editors for smart phones as well.

·
·

Sometimes centering is not necessary depending on what is showing around it, and what appeals to you.

I take focus at this point, I don't really understand how to judge an interesting object, in photography I think it's very broad. When I take a few clicks of a photo, I have to position the camera with the right angle, and some other rules I think.

I can't do this, I plan to buy a camera for photography to improve the experience in it, I think this is the best way for me to do than I have to read a lot of theories.

thank you very much Sir @r2cornell

Always feel happy to see rose in a picture and take it nicely by you sir @r2cornell. I don't have a lens like this, still kits. That is why I still like landscape, not yet able to macro. Hopefully I can learn a lot later. And I'm glad we have the same pleasure with vegetables. Because I born in highland place and rich country with vegetables and fruits. You can find my birthplace. Gayo, Central Aceh, Indonesia.

Regard @khaimi

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

I love my macro lens, but would like to get one a little more powerful. But need currencies to keep climbing.

I started working in my parents garden at a very young age. I was second oldest so I even helped with preserving (canning and freezing). I was lucky to be able to grow up on a farm, and still have a small "hobby" farm.

very nice photography

Wao what a great and amazing photography. Flowers gives you fresh air. Flowers is very important in our life. I really like to eat salad. I m glad to see your garden flowers. You doing your job very wonderfully. Pink african violet flower is my favourite. Its looks different from others. Always wait for your great and valuable posts. Thanks for sharing. @r2cornell.
