Jinx does look pitiful waiting for her boy to come back. smile

Our Cherry Blossoms are still about a month away. I'm waiting for the leaves to return to the trees.

Trillium are blossoming all over our woods. In some places as thick as blankets.

Just a view through the coach window in Ireland, so many ruined castles all over the country, I loved them, my cousin wasn't so keen, she thought there were just too many, seen one, seen them all!

Most of my Irish photos have been point and shoot through the moving coach windows so really potluck.

Beautiful Sue. I could look at castles all day - imagine how hard it would have been in those days to do something like that - and right next to water like that. Amazing.
I suppose at least they would have been able to save time by not having to do an environmental impact study ...

Here's an sign that won't mean much to many but it's an old beer brand .. I remember it as the one my Dad used to drink oh so many years ago.
Gave me memories seeing it hanging up on the fence around an outback pub. smile

had to be careful I didn't get run over here! I loved the architecture in Santa Fe when I visited there a couple of years ago for a conference.

This is the Cathedral Basilica of St Francis of Assisi.

That looks like Adare Castle, Sue! Very pretty!

Love the basilica, MM, and your beer sign, copago!

I found a little shell I thought was pretty and took it home to try a still life.

I have to keep the pic small though.....................................................................................cos it's out of focus.

Lovely. A stroke of genious to put it on the beautiful tree bark.
Still life would be another good subject for a 2 week theme.

This is the view across the bridleway where I walk Susie. The white on the field is a flock of seagulls that seem to be there pretty much all the time.

All the pictures are lovely. I especially love the still life chavs. The flowers and the pond make me think nice weather must be on its way here. The leaves are finally coming out on the trees.

While looking through pictures tonight I came across this one. A young Moose that came here to the farm a few years ago and kept breaking down fencing. He made the cows so nervous. But isn't he beautiful!
