April 25th Sunshine

Good day everyone... My Saturday stared out on the cold side, but clear skies and sunshine warmed it into the mid teens (Celsius ;) ). I was able to get some cleanup work done at the house and in the bush in a T-shirt...funny to think that earlier in the week on Tuesday and Wednesday I was scouting ...

Re: All the flowers are blooming

Your garden looks great with the flowers starting to put on their show :bow The flowers along the walk in in the woods are lovely too...just a hint of green starting to show in the sugar bush today.

April 23rd - Better Luck

Hi all... A sunny day again today and the winds dropped as well, so it was a more promising session today.

Thanks everyone for your kind words and feedback...always appreciated :bow Alexandra, they were pretty feeble and figured most could find them once the hi-res pic was posted but I didn't want to make people guess, ;) Due to the seeing, I only had two video clips turn out, and these were the brighter...
