About my parents

After mom and dad retired, they spent a lot of time working on our front yard. They like seeing me take photographs of their plants with my mobile phone. I'm no photographer and I don't own a decent camera but mom and dad are quick to appreciate whatever crappy photograph I show them. Sometimes, I'd get really good shots and they would say, "Wow! Ang ganda naman!" (Wow, that looks beautiful!). To the best parents in the world, this small collection is for you.

Me: Mom, what is this?

Mom: Swee Mei

Me: Huh?

Mom: S-W-E-E M-E-I

Me: Thanks but I can't find anything on Google about a Swee Mei.

Mom: That's what the gardener said. I even wrote it down.

After searching Google for 10 minutes, I finally found a Shui Mei on a WordPress site. Mom said 'Ang galing mo sa Google!' She got a piece of paper and wrote down Shui Mei, Wrightia religiosa aka Water Jasmine.

Thank you!

I appreciate you for visiting this hub! Do you have any advice for photography enthusiasts like me? Maybe in the future, I'll have enough to buy a proper camera and of course I'm looking to take some courses. There's a lot of the world to see and to preserve in photographs!

What camera would you recommend for a newbie?

      These are just awesome. Two things I love, gardens and cameras. I love going to botanic gardens for photos. I love this hub, those are such great shots. I particularly love the big, purple flower with the butterfly on it. Nice job, thanks so much for sharing!
