Camellias are blooming in Montgomery County, MD The camellia show and sale was held at Brookside Gardens at the Wheaton Regional Park in Montgomery County, MD this past weekend. Many were out to purchase camellias to plant in their yards and gardens. www.brooksidegardens.org. For the shows, the camellia blooms are usually displayed in glasses of water. When they have plants with no blooms, porcelainfigures of camellias are sometimes displayed to show what kind of bloom may be expected. If you enjoy photographing flowers, the flower shows present many opportunities to see the best in the area. This weekend, Saturday afternoon and Sunday are the days for the Daffodil Show at Brookside Gardens. If you have photographs from your favorite places, please share them in the comments for this po...

Maryland Orchid Society Show at the Timonium Fairgrounds The March Maryland Orchid Society Show and Sale was part of the Maryland Home and Garden Show. If you missed it, be sure to attend the next one. March was a big month for orchid shows across the country. This month, we are seeing the openings of spring garden shows. Dolores and I attended a camellia show on Saturday and the coming weekend activities include a daffodil show at Brookside Gardens at the Wheaton Regonal Park in Montgomery County, MD. Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA has also opened its spring shows. Be sure to attend the events in your area and have a camera in hand to capture the colors of spring.

Write contracts to be as beautiful as an orchid In our area market in Montgomery County, Maryland, many homes for sale are attracting multiple contracts. And this is almost a standard with REO offerings. Every buyer agent is compelled to present contracts in the best possible form. This is more of an art than a scientific approach. Yes, contracts should be complete and well written as well.  It is not a time for sloppy or incomplete contracts or a time to leave out the pre-approval letter for mortgage financing. The artistic side is to be able to view the contract from the perspective of the seller. If the listing is really a pre-foreclosure, as many are, it is better to limit what is requested on repairs because the seller may not have the funds to meet the conditions of the the buyer....

Begin the week with orchids March was a big month for orchid shows and sales. It is still a good time to purchase plants that were featured in exhibits. Many gardens have now turned to their spring displays. Dolores and I attended a camellia show and sale at Brookside Gardens in the Wheaton Regional Park in Montgomery County, MD over the weekend. We were allowed to photograph the blooms while the judging was taking place and before the exhibit was open to the public. This group of photographs is from the Maryland Orchid Society Show and Sale which was part of the Maryland Home and Garden Show at the Timonium Fairgrounds. Please share photographs from your special places in the comments for this post. Maryland Orchid Society Show, Timonium Fairgrounds, March 11, 2011. Canon PowerShot G11...

Sunday orchids from the Maryland Orchid Society Show The past month has been a time for orchid shows and sales in many communities. We were fortunate to be able to attend the Maryland Orchid Society Show that was part of the Maryland Home and Garden Show at the Timonium Fairgrounds. Aside from my photography hobby, our office has been very busy with home buyers that are trying to take advantage of the very attractive home prices and the very low interest rates. FHA buyers need to have case numbers assigned before April 18 to avoid the increase in the cost of mortgage insurance. This weekend, orchid growers are visiting Longwood Gardens to purchase plants that were in the Orchid Extravaganza exhibit. Yesterday, Dolores and I attended the camellia show and sale at Brookside Gardens at the...

Friday Orchids We have hundreds of orchid photographs from the March shows and sales. This group of pictures is from the Maryland Orchid Society Show and Sale at the Maryland Home and Garden Show at the Timonium Fairgrounds. If you enjoy orchids, this is the time of the year to see displays of every type and color that you could imagine. This weekend is a good time to visit Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square Pennsylvania to see the new Spring Exhibit.  Those that wish to purchase orchids should attend the Orchid Extravaganza orchid sale this weekend. Blue Poppies are in bloom now!   "Longwood's famed Blue Poppies are back! These elusive plants are usually found in Scotland, Alaska and the Himalayas, but you need only to travel to Longwood to see these show-stopping beauties."  www.longw...

Do you like orchids? If you like orchids, this is the time of the year to visit local and regional orchid shows and sales. In Maryland, we were fortunate to have the Maryland Orchid Society Show and Sale at the Maryland Home and Garden Show at the Timonium Fairgrounds. You may be surprised by the variety of available orchids. They are grown in many colors and shapes. If you want to polish your skills as a flower photographer, taking hundreds of pictures at the shows will give you the practice that is needed to identify the best angles and lighting. One of the nice things about digital photography is that you do not have to worry about the cost of film and it is easy to delete the photographs that do not turn out well. I'm always looking for the shots that make me think "wow" when I view...

An Orchid For You! March has been a busy month for local and regional orchid sales and shows. It is a good time to select orchids for your home and a wonderful time for photographers that enjoy the challenge of photographing flowers. If you wish to take up flower photography as a hobby, the flower shows are good opportunities for practice. Take a couple of hundred pictures at each of a few shows and you will develop an eye for the best angles and the best lighting. There is no substitute for a high qualify camera but you do not need a high priced camera to have a high level of enjoyment. Always select a camera that comes with photo editing software to place on your computer and always edit your pictures before you share them with family and friends.  Don't worry about the pictures that ...

Wednesday Orchids For You! Everybody seems to be having orchid shows and sales this month. These photographs were taken at the Maryland Orchid Society Show and Sale at the Maryland Home and Garden show at the Timonium Fairgrounds. You do not need to be an orchid grower or expert to enjoy the shows and capture the unusual shapes and colors.  Dolores and I have been out of town for a week and I am behind on my comments on ActiveRain. We enjoyed visits to Pinehurst, NC, Aiken, SC and Wilmington, NC.  Be sure to have your camera in hand to capture the colors of the changing season. If you have photographs from favorite places or shows, please share them in the comments for this post. Maryland Orchid Society Show, Timonium Fairgrounds, March 11, 2011. Canon PowerShot G11 camera.

Tuesday Orchids For You Dolores and I attended the Maryland Home and Garden Show. It was actually three shows in one complex at the Timonium Fairgrounds. The Maryland Orchid Society Show and Sale was in the first building. The second building was the home show and the third build housed the craft show. We really enjoyed taking flower photographs at the Orchid Show. All of them will be posted on my Facebook page as they are edited.  If you follow my posts, I hope you enjoy flower pictures because we take hundreds of them. Dolores wants me to have a hobby for my retirement years and hopes that photography will keep me busy while she plays golf. If you have photographs photographs to share, please include them with your comments on this post. Maryland Orchid Society Show, Timonium Fairgrou...

 A Dahlia For You! If you follow my blogs, you know that I post lots of flower photographs. Some of my friends have asked for tips on how to get good flower pictures.  I find many opportunities on neighborhood walks during the spring and summer. However, if you want to see the best looking flowers, attend some of your local and regional flower shows. Then, you will have the chance to photograph the flowers that are winning the awards. This dahlia is a nicer bloom than you will find in most of the neighborhood gardens and the colors are wonderful. Always have your camera in hand to capture the colors of the moment. If you have photographs from favorite places, please share them in the comments for this post. Dahlia Show, sponsored by the National Capital Dahlia Society, at Brookside Gard...

Monday Orchids This is another group of orchid photographs taken at the Maryland Orchid Society Show which was part of the Maryland Home and Garden Show at the Timonium Fairgrounds. March is a big month for local and regional orchid shows as growers select their plants for the season. Spring is coming and many are anxious to grow more flowers. Real estate professionals are also very busy this spring season as home buyers take advantage of the very attractive home prices and the very low interest rates.  In Maryland, qualified first time home buyers have available grants to $7,500 to assist with the cash requirements of a home purchase. Be sure to have your camera in hand this week to capture the changing colors of the season.  Please share your pictures in the comments for my posts. Mar...
