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...

There are many homes lost to foreclosure since the mortgage and real estate crisis in 2008.  Many of these foreclosed homes or mortgages were bought by Fannie Mae.  As a result, there are a lot of Fannie Mae foreclosed homes that are up for sale creating really great home buying opportunities for those who are qualified.  To help sell the foreclosed homes, Fannie Mae has set up a special mortgage financing program called HomePath Financing by Fannie Mae.  This program is designed for borrowers who are looking to buy a home to live in or to purchase as an investment property. Home Path Mortgage is a special home buying option available through Fannie Mae. Multiple incentives are available to entice buyers to purchase Fannie Mae properties including reduced down payment requirements and c...

Fannie Mae is a government-sponsored enterprise (GSE) chartered by Congress with a duty to provide liquidity, stability and affordability to the U.S. housing markets now a day.  It runs in the U.S. as a secondary mortgage market and not making home loans directly to consumers.  It works with mortgage bankers, brokers and other primary mortgage market partners to help ensure that all of them have funds to lend to home buyers at affordable rates. Fannie Mae has the home path program for borrowers.  The HomePath program was intended for the sale of foreclosed homes owned by Fannie Mae. A HomePath mortgage can only be used to purchase one of those foreclosed homes under the said program. The loans are offered in two types which can be based on fixed-rate, adjustable-rate or interest-only te...

 Yellow orchids for you I hope you are not getting tired of looking at my flower photographs. As we enjoy the spring weather in Maryland, our thoughts are turning to outside activities including the spring clean up of our yards and gardens. It is a good time to select the flowers we will enjoy during the spring and summer seasons. 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.

Additional pictures from the Maryland Orchid Society Show The Maryland Orchid Society Show and Sale was a very special part of the Maryland Home and Garden Show at the Timonium Fairgrounds. It was a great place to spend a couple of hours on a cold day in March. There are many orchid shows and sale this month. It is not too late to go to Orchid Extravaganza in the Conservatory at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. Longwood Gardens is a must visit location for those that enjoy flowers and plants and having an opportunity to photograph them in beautiful settings. www.longwoodgardens.org Please tell me if you identify a favorite among this group.

 A blue orchid for the first day of spring March is a time for many local and regional orchid shows. It is always interesting to see the variety of plants and the color combinations provided by nature. Blue orchids are sometimes featured in special exhibits. They are not usually found in at home displays. You certainly will not have the Monday blues when you enjoy the beauty of a blue orchid. This bloom was photographed at the Maryland Orchid Society Show which was part of the Maryland Home and Garden Show at the Timonium Fairgrounds.

The season for orchid shows 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. The big Orchid Extravaganza is the current show at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. It is well worth the trip if you can make it to the area. 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.

 An unusual orchid for you It is fun to photograph orchids at local and regional orchid shows that are popular at this time of the year. Those that are not orchid professionals are sometime surprised by the wide variety of orchid shapes and colors. Some are not very pretty and many are unusual because we not not frequently see them in household settings. Please share your shots of orchids in the comments for this post. If you don't have an orchid photograph, show us what you enjoy. Maryland Orchid Society Show, Timonium Fairgrounds, March 11, 2011. Canon PowerShot G11 camera. Photograph by Roy Kelley.

Maryland Orchids Horticulture Hall at the Timonium Fairgrounds was the location of the Maryland Orchid Society Show and Sale. The event was part of the large Maryland home and Garden Show.  Dolores and I were there on a cold day and it was very nice to be surrounded by orchids of every type and color. Yesterday was an unusually warm day in Maryland and many of us got in a little yard and garden work as we prepare for the spring season. The warm weather also created activity among many prospective home buyers. They will be looking at open houses this weekend as they take advantage of the very attractive home prices and the extremely low interest rates. Those that plan to use FHA financing have the additional incentive to have their case numbers assigned before the April 18th increase in ...

The Federal Reserve Board announced the final rules to protect mortgage borrowers from unfair, abusive, or deceptive lending practices that can arise from loan originator compensation practices. This new rules apply to mortgage brokers and the companies that employ them, as well as mortgage loan officers employed by depository institutions and other lenders.  The new and final rules will take effect on April 1, 2011. It is a common practice now a day that lenders pay loan originators more compensation if the borrower accepts an interest rate higher than the rate required by the lender which is commonly referred to as yield spread premium.  But because of the final rules, a loan originator may not receive compensation that is based on the interest rate or other loan terms. The final rule...
