why thank you! :D I took this photo in March 2002. I have NO idea when the blossoming time for them is in bda.. spring i guess... but I think you can pretty much find them at most times of the year if you look around. Interesting that it's got a different name in different parts of the world! :) Oh and you faved it too huh? cool cool. thanks a bunch!

where in canada are you? I go to uni in Montreal. and uh.. lol. I've got news for you... Florida is way further south than Bermuda :laughing: We're actually directly east of North Carolina (not too many people know that.. they think we're in the Caribbean). :)

wow! see i learned something. it's true you have the feeling that bermuda is more in the south. well, that's cool. I live in New Brunswick...south of Quebec. I have family in Montreal and my best friend is studying at University of Montreal, her masters in Opera. You'll like Montreal, very nice...i like it.

Canon Digital Elph. PowerShot SD110. Actually that was taken with my old camera... not a huge difference tho. I got this one to replace the first when it was stolen. Hmm.. the camera info isn't tagged to the pic huh. Maybe b/c I altered the colour saturation first? I'm new. maybe you know! :)

and thanks for the compliments! much appreciated!

No problem. I don't know. Probably depends how you save your photo afterwards that determines whether or not the tag is kept. Keep up the good work!
