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