In other good news, I think I figured out how to play around with my camera and get better pictures (at least of plants). Hopefully playing with the aperture and shutter speed will help me with my food pictures.
First the bonsai from class:
These next ones are frequently called 'dwarf jades' but in fact they aren't really jades. They're called 'portulacaria afra' or Elephant's food, since in South Africa, apparently elephants eat these. They grow fast and I think they look pretty nice.
This last one will hopefully be a bonsai tree, we'll see how well it thickens up with time.
And a new purchase I was unable to turn down:
I'm a real sucker for these guys.
Okay, back to food.
