    I'm loving looking through these picis Rona, sod my dad keep em coming ;)
    Actually I can't wait till he's strong enough to look through these, it might encourage him to think that he can do it again himself. However much I would love to steel his camera because it's far better than mine I really would love to see it back in his hands more :)

    Been a busy day today and not had the camera out much :blushing:
    This bright little celandine made me smile though :)

    Sat by a pond with the dog this afternoon for a few minutes. I hope you can hear this, there must have been 100s of them :)

    I'm so sorry but I didn't get any pictures today.
    It's been really warm again but nothing seemed to want it's picture taken :(
    There are quite a few primroses about now and I saw some daffodils out alongside the road.
    I'm on the look out for the first wood anemone and the first dog violet :)
    There was quite a nice sunset tonight, but again I couldn't seem to get to a place to get a picture :(
    Will try harder tomorrow ;)

    Hiya, hope you are still recovering well and that my daily update from Clare is a totally positive one today
    Today I make up for the last two days, get yourself a cuppa before you look ;)
    We went to part of the Downs Link today http://cranleighrailway.info/acrobat/downs_link_route_guide.pdf

    Just a taster of the walk

    I'm sorry but no pictures again today. It's been dull and damp, so thought it best to leave the camera at home.
    Hoping you are still on the road to recovery and Clare's tummy has settled.
    It never rains but it pours does it?

    :eek: I hope this thread doesn't make him jealous, but I hope it does give him a shove to get back out there ;) When he's well enough of course :)
    My pictures are very variable, some are taken "on the move" others with a dog at the end of a lead and some, I get the OH to look after the hound while I try for a good picture :)
    Your dad and I both agree though that the memory is far more important than the quality of the picture, that's just a bonus if you can manage it :)

    Today was a bit overcast, but not as damp, so camera had an outing, unfortunately there wasn't a great many subjects around.
    Sticky bud :D

    I keep on about the lack of rain here so I thought I would show you one of our ponds.
    The black line I drew is where the water level should be at this time of year

    Another overcast and very warm day today. Had a dentist appointment today so I didn't feel very inspired this morning, I hate the dentist :eek:
    Got one or two little critters this afternoon though :D

    Not sure if spring has hit you that far up country yet, in a way I hope not. I hope it's waiting for you to be ready to see everything spring to life :)

    I haven't taken many pictures over the last few days, the weather has now deteriorated into rain :thumbup1:.
    I believe you are now able to at least get outside a little :) so I shall only add to this if I come across something special, I get a shot I'm particularly happy with or until you've seen it :D

    Just a little poem I found that seems to sum me up perfectly

    A Plain Life

    NO idle gold -- since this fine sun, my friend,
    Is no mean miser, but doth freely spend.

    No prescious stones -- since these green mornings show,
    Without a charge, their pearls where'er I go.

    No lifeless books -- since birds with their sweet tongues
    Will read aloud to me their happier songs.

    No painted scenes -- since clouds can change their skies
    A hundred times a day to please my eyes.

    No headstrong wine -- since, when I drink, the spring
    Into my eager ears will softly sing.

    No surplus clothes -- since every simple beast
    Can teach me to be happy with the least.

    W.H. Davies

    Brilliant Photos Rona, I was a few days behind, really enjoyed them some amazing ones there, loved the poem too.

    Shes getting a bit too good at this Photography lark Snipeblade, obviously in need of some stiff competition.;):)

    Got two nests in my hedge, a Blackbird and a Hedge Sparrow, I hope they lay eggs there, it's one of the safest places for them, no sensible cat will venture into our garden................ shhhhhh :)

    I'll just slip in this milkmaid

    I don't know what you've done to me, I can't stop now!!! :D

    Apparently this Fungi is supposed to reasonably rare and on the Fungi sites they seem to tell everyone where they can go and see it!
    A bit like a rare butterfly :D

    I've seen three different sites that it's growing (do you say growing with Fungi? :confused:) recently around here
    Have you seen any?
    Yorkshire is supposed to be where it grows best :)

    They are difficult to photograph, they never stop!!!!
