Welcome back, Copago! I missed your photos of Conor.

I think a poppy too - you will see some poppy photos from me soon - we are very close to the Antelope Valley Poppy Preserve, and they should be blooming soon.

Not very nice for photos today but while I was in the park I got this view of a quite original block of flats just before you get to Hendon

Here is the Southfork house at night...taken from the same vantage point.



The daytime pic can be seen here.

Welcome back Copago I missed your photos from Down Under. Glad to see your river has made a comeback. Does that mean the drought is over?

More from Joshua Tree National Park. The wildflowers are blooming at lower elevations in the park.

Thanks for identifying the poppy everyone. There are so many flowers here that I don't know. I'm going to have to get more identifications later on pictures I'm going to post.

I'm very tired of taking and posting snow pictures...especially as it is snowing again as I write. I decided to take some silly indoor photos instead, so here we have the toy mouse on top of one of Katt's toys

Lovely Clara Sue, those Gerberas I mean. They do brighten any flower bed or vase,when there seems to be nothing else around. I really like them.
In Nathan Road, our main thoroughfare in Kowloon, the Rotary Club have erected this sculpture. A bit late for the theme of last week, so I put it here.

Here's a close-up of some of the desert wildflowers we saw on Saturday.

This one was taken a while ago. I'm not sure if I linked to this one ages ago (pre Photo-a-Day) but thought I'd show it now for the cloud formation. It's a view across Lake Windemere as evening draws in:

My wife and I have been in London the last couple of days, and we saw the musical Spamalot last night. We'd booked tickets a while ago, before our cat Aramis died, and I think this helped to take our mind off our loss. Hilarious show anyway, and definitely not to be missed by Monty Python fans
We were in Piccadilly Circus earlier today, and this is the well know moving advert there.

I think there's an unwritten rule in Britain. Single man, time off, take photos of trains. I think it's in the old laws somewhere...
This one is going through Ealing.

More neat photos, all. dsjgal, my best friend now lives in Kingman, AZ and she said there has been so much rain this year that the desert is absolutely glorius with all the flowering cactus and such. She is supposed to be sending me some pics in an e-mail, is totally camera and computer illiterate and knows it, so until and IF I get hers, I will continue enjoying yours. I have told her about the ones you have put up on here. Sandy

I'm hoping to soon be able to photograph these branches bearing lilacs. Meanwhile, I thought the overnight snow looked rather pretty on them.

Not too much cropping of the background done here. The robin really was very close. I only got the photo by chance. I was just playing with the camera settings in the garden, turned my head and there it was. I thought it would fly before I could take a photo but it hung around just long enough.

Here's another common garden bird of Britain, a blue tit, which like TW's robin remains here throughout the year. They are tough little birds, but still have a hard time in winter. Sorry about the quality but I shot this image through the window glass.

So glad you're enjoying them, Sandy - I do have a couple more left to show.

Nice catch with the robin, TW!

This is the "skeleton" of a cholla catcus from Joshua Tree NP.

This is a typical landmark from my world, St Johns Wood Underground station, also the first place in the country I saw palm trees outside.

Great shot of the birds, TW & Picqero. Picqero's Blue Tit looks like our Blue Jay here in Canada. But I think it's a bit smaller. The Blue Jay is just a bit larger than a Robin.

See Blue Jay

I'm really tired of the snow here, but it is starting to melt. So here is a photo of some of my flowers from last summer.

argus, our robin is also quite a bit larger than theirs.
