Tears of Spring

Welcome
We have had a torrid time of it lately with severe storms and just recently an earthquake on Sunday night. Fortunately, we have been very lucky but it has been a wake up call to remind us that we are living in the Shaky Isles.
However, yesterday I noticed that the daffodils are starting to come and heralding the onset of spring. We still have another month to go before we are officially in spring but it is heartening to see the signs of the seasons changing and that we are heading towards better weather.
I think this jonquil is called Early Cheer and it certainly does cheer us up with their colour and scent.
I hope you all have a great day.
Happy snapping

Hello again.
I do apologise that I have been a little remiss in updating my blog lately but I have been very busy making cards for Make Shift and having to work through a lot of fatigue as well.
The weather was lovely today and I took the opportunity to go back to the duck pond for another photography session. I have another camera club competition next week and the theme is ‘reflection’. I have tried several times to capture a duck and a perfect reflection but haven’t been too successful with the sun in the wrong place and too much wind. But the conditions were very pleasant today, despite the ducks being a little spooked by some rowdy children. This photo came out quite well and I will look at entering into the competition with it. It will be interesting getting feedback from a professional photographer about it, so I can develop as a photographer.
I hope you all have a good weekend and Happy snapping.
Patricia
