Thanks, everyone! And welcome, Mommakat, Samantha is gorgeous!

What's springtime without a kite or two? Although a little blurry, you can see this kite is in the shape of a ship.

No merit in the photography here but I had just told the orangutan that if he didn't behave and smile for the camera next time I would bring Sara with me!

Lol, Sue! Looks like a fine reflection of a handsome specimen. Talking of Sara - apologies are in order. I remember saying months ago that I would take a pic of Sandringham House for you. I've made it to the gates. Maybe in another year I'll make it to the other side

Welcome Mommakat, I think Samantha was very lucky to find you, like my Lucy was ten years ago.

I said there should be more places like Hampstead Garden Suburb, found one and today went to Guildford and found another. As they were very basic cottages they should have more locations but the profits on large plots are a lot lower than squashing them all together so pretty rare to find.



You can also see why I prefer the old signs as these are very good examples of the new (post 1964) ones. The others are still around though as there were so many the councils realised it was a total waste of money just changing them because the government preferred the new ones. These ruin the whole view.

Oops! So sorry Sue not to give due credit. Now it seems we'll need enough shrimp to pink up baby flamingo and Ren! (-8

Hello again Onimisi, I hope you get home net access soon!

These are the woods off the main road near Churt in Surrey

I have been enjoying all the photos, as usual. Its nice seeing the flowers from all over. When you live at 43.50 N and 96.70 W you have to wait until about now to see any color.



This is a flowering crabapple tree in our backyard. The best time to have a flowering crab is now. The worst time is in the fall when all the apples fall off and pile up in the yard.

Welcome Mommakat, I'll look forward to seeing lots of photos of the lovely Samantha

For anyone who has read "Deafening" by Frances Itani, this is the Post Office in Deseronto that plays quite a large part in the book. It's quite an interesting building in any case.

Hi! I'm really enjoying the pictures - so many pretty flowers and woods and kitties .

Here's another from New York. This is the statue of Columbus in Columbus Circle with the Time Warner Center towers behind. CNN's New York bureau is in these buildings, so when you see the news on CNN from New York - this is where it's filmed.

To Copago, Ysmay, Tredici, Clarasue and Spanishliz, thank you for your kind words. I am new at this so am still feeling my way along, but as I get cheekier I will certainly post more pics of my rescued animals....Mommakat

Maybe this is a bit sexy for this forum, but this couple looked so good on Worthing beech.

LOL at Runningbare

THis is called West Copago Bore. The windmill broke down a good few years ago so we set up a solar pump which you see ot the left of the mill. The panels follow the sun around during the day and pumps the artesian water into that tank in the foreground and there are three troughs in different paddocks that water stock on.

Beautiful pictures of Maui, bhs.

A geode containing amethyst at the Royal Ontario Museum. Their minerals section was a real delight for a geology student like me.

Now that is what I call a geode! The Geological Museum in London was always one of my favourites, and I have a much smaller version in my own collection but now lives in a box.

Now how many other people here would take a picture of an electricity transformer? And quite a few more than that actually.

I took this photo last week in north Wales. Castle Square, Caernarfon, viewed from the main post office depicting two monarchs. Caernarfon Castle, built over 700 years ago by king Edward I, is in the background, whilst the twin postboxes of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II are in the foreground.
