My brother-in-law designed and built the fence where it stands. It is quite the prettiest one in the area (my opinion), and the squirrels love running along the top of it smile

Another direction. A bit misty but you get the idea.

Lovely pictures everyone!
Particularly liked satguru's "village" pic - lucky light on that one - love it when the clouds part to give you a surreal "paintbrush" : )

Welcome dave! Great pic!!!! (scary, but great!)

Some of you know I'm a bit of an orchid "nut" (yeah okay, some of you just think I'm nutty lol) ANYHOO, I currently have 17 different ones in my house, in different windows, so they all bloom at various times of the year. This is one of my favourites, because the petals look like wet watercolour paper that someone has splattered with magenta paint...

Mike: Thanks! Yours are EXcellent! If that well-fed elk further up didn't have antlers, I'd swear it was pregnant lol. Very difficult to get a good shot of a bird having a bath. 99% of my attempts are so blurred they look like modern art.

SpanishLiz: Last week I could have imagined sitting out in the yard as you did during the early afternoon, but as of yesterday, winter returned here. I took this photo around 5 p.m. We're hardly "snowed under", but keep in mind that there was absolutely NO snow on the ground at noon ...


(meanwhile it was +27C in "Winterpeg" - of all places!)

This is my world, Golders Green Road including red bus. I've been coming here all my life and never lived more than a few miles away. It was also the only area I could ever go to where I was likely to see anyone I knew wherever they lived, as it's somewhere people are drawn to from all directions somehow.

This is Northumberland Street Newcastle upon Tyne as seen from outside Haymarket Metro Station. This was once the A1 road from London to Edinburgh. That road now bypasses the city and the street has been pedestrianised

Gees: You have so many nice shots of the place you live in. Thought about publishing a tour-type book? Or an online blog?

Satguru: now THAT looks like spring! Nice shot.

Thanks Jakeroo. It's the annual cherry blossom season there as well, I used to fill my school cap with it on the way home from primary school and put it in vases.

Thanks Jakeroo, nice idea but there are several sites already do this run by professional photographers so I will leave it to them.
Its tulip time these have been raised in the local council nursery and are planted out in the Spring

My mango tree looks very promising. We had over 100 last year.
