Default That spring walk in the yard...again.

Yep, another year, another walk. Don't want to overdo y'know.

Great spring day yesterday so I took the camera out of winter mode for a stroll in the yard. No award winning photos among this bunch just fun collection.

Spring means daffodil's and some 15-15 years ago, mum and I, on one of her anual visits went and bought a sack of bulbs. She's not around any more but the flowers every year, are a happy reminder.


Rododendron catching some rays.


Mum is the one who found the Red Tailed Hawk feathers in the San Juans Islands. Now in the garden shed window box.


Some people think the Taraxacum officinale or Dent-de Leon ia a noxious weed...as do I. I do have some award winning specimens though.

Those are a really nice series of shots Ken, and all are good. Excellent color and composition. You did well. Kinda hard to chose favorites out of this bunch, but I lean to picking #2, #4, and #6.
