I doesn't seem that long ago that I took this pic with my Fuji v10

noticing the fall of leaves when walking in a park.

And now earlier this week with my newly aquired Nikon D80

Flowers peering over a garden wall, they have even produced

seed by the looks of it. Unusual at this latitude I think.

Still have to get to grips with all the bells and whistles on this cam,

before I get pics that I am really impressed with.

musket,

I always like your pictures. Also these two. Azaleas (Rhododendron?) can be surprising in their blooming

I agree. It is a scientifical fact that global warming already now endangers life on this planet. We cannot let Exxon&Bush risk the future for our children

Thanks for posting

Torgny

Hello Bob and Torgny, yes I like to get out and walk about in

the greenery lol. Azelias (Rhododendrons) I wasn't quite

expecting, If it had been daffodills that I had spotted, it would

not have seemed unusual lol. Thanks for your comments Victor.

it's definitely early for rhododendrons to bloom... mine don't even get buds until June!

Oh, that might even be a mutation you detectedduring your walks:-) They say one swallow doesn't make a spring, after all...Anyway, joke aside,your first shot has really appealed to me!

Squirl, We get the golf stream that keeps the weather a bit milder

in winters here, and on hindsight these flowers were in a sheltered

location also I'm not familiar with the flowering habits of these

flowers they might produce the seed before opening the flowers

so maybe it wasn't that unusual.


Bahadir, quite rightly said one swallow doesn't make a spring and

even insects have been fooled by mild weather and come out of

hibernation too early in previous years at this latitude.

thank you both for you comments.

Another pic from the same group of flowers
