Yes, it snowed here as well - quite a change from yesterday when I posted an image of my grand-daughter cycling! I couldn't resist going cycling in the snow for a couple of hours though, and this was one of the views.

Hurray for spring, Gatsby!

Picqero, you've been wishing for snow all winter and now you get in April? Amazing!

Here's another shot from our trip to Florida a couple of weeks ago. My daughters and stepdaughter along the beach.

Gats, I love your springtime photo of the park! As for picqero and TW getting snow now...Well!

We've had a couple of lovely, sunny days, and I've been able to get my Mum, who is visiting for the weekend, to sit outside in the sun for awhile each day. Note the lingering snow in front of the porch.

Nice photos everyone - Gats yours is so inviting.

That photo of yours TW looks like it's out of a picture book! I found myself looking for Mr. Tumnus in the corner....very nice capture.

And Lisa, I would have also snapped this shot of the Gargoyle, it's not often you see them so close to the ground.

The sun must have felt lovely for your mum, Liz.

Perhaps my last poppy photo - we'll see! Here's a closeup of poppies and goldfields. I love the goldfields even better than the poppies I think.

It snowed again this morning, and stayed just long enough to get a few images. I thought this pink house nearby looked even better in the snow than it does normally!

On my travels today, I was in Grapevine, and saw this on my left. Talk about low-flying! This was at the intersection of Mustang Trail and State Highway 114/121.

Here is Strand on the Green in Chiswick on the River Thames, once busy with antique markets but now only the cafe remains. And some pretty expensive celebrity houses (including Ant and Dec not far away).

For fans of Penn State University and its Nittany Lions, here's a quick mid-March snapshot of Mount Nittany, named for the Native American maiden Nit-A-Nee who, in one night, caused the mountain to rise up in the valley.

You are so right about that pink house Picqero! It looks made to be topped with a frosting of snow.

This robin sat on the roof of my garden shed, just outside my window, for simply ages this morning. I watched him for at least fifteen minutes.

Some of you may recall that back in January's photo thread, I posted a photo of a piece of bushland near my home that was burned out by an arsonist. The original picture can be seen at:

http://www.funtrivia.com/ubbthreads/show...part=2&vc=1

Now, about 13 weeks later, the bush is regenerating, as you can see by the amount of green in this photo compared to the original. It's been a long dry summer but we've had some episodes of rain over the past two weeks and things are starting to look green around here.

The arsonist has not been caught to my knowledge.

I was wondering where you had been. What a lovely pic Sue and the little man has grown quite a bit too. Bet you had a wonderful time.

It's most unlikely we'll get any more snow this year, so here's the view yesterday from our back window.

The snow was all gone by mid-day

I was on a train crossing the Pennines this morning and we went through a lovely snowstorm, everything was gorgeous, trees, fields - lovely.

Baby is now fifteen weeks so growing fast.

Lovely family photo Sue, and he looks so grown up already dressed up so nicely.
And welcome to the photo thread Martin, I don't think I've seen you in the forums before (although you've clearly been around here a while).

This is another modernist classic I came across in Ealing.

Wonderful photos by all as usual! Sue, he is looking so much older, isn't it amazing! The snow pics are gorgeous, but I'm with Gats. I can finally see small stretches of water on Lake Erie, yay!

I can't believe how big he's getting, Sue!
Picqero, you got some really nice snow shots there. I especially like the view from your back window.
And welcome, Martin. I look forward to more of your pics!

It's been such a gloomy, rainy week while we've been in North Carolina this week. I went out today and tried to get some pictures of the ducks in the pond. While feeding them some bread and trying to get the color adjusted on my camera (which I failed dismally), I was set upon by these guys.

One of my chores for the last couple of sunny afternoons has been to shovel my lawn. That is, I have been shovelling snow from the perpetually shady part of my front lawn into the late afternoon sun, to help the melting process along. This was taken as I sat on my front steps surveying my work.
