A not-so-spectacular shot of one of the (two) tiny parks in my little town. I liked it for two reasons, mostly: there's actually some green [and even growing!] stuff visible. And that shiny blue sky was a mighty welcome thing to find again on an otherwise hum-drum Ohio morning...

Wow gamemaster, that's the first time I've seen a cat be nice to a bird before, she looks just like my Lucy and she also brings birds home but isn't nearly so friendly with them.

This is a church in Highgate Hill just opposite where I was born.

The river has receded a bit, but is still bubbling. What I'm really liking, though, is the greenery as the trees start to get their leaves.

Our Primary 2 classroom (tidy for once). The display at the back is about plants
It is great to see so many photos in here celebrating the arrival of spring at last.

That's great, Ren. I have sometimes wondered what your classroom looked like.

I posted a photo of what looked like a two-headed cow a while back. Now here's a two-headed goose. There's strange things happening around our way!



Of course the real answer lies in the reflection in the water.

Great photos from all as usual. I never tire of your Lea Valley, picqero. Ren, it is neat to finally have a picture of where you spend your time! gamemaster, that is one impressive photo. I have to wonder if kitty would get along so well with tw's tagteam geese?

Yay . My favorite tree in the world, this. It only blooms for a very short time (two days tops ~ last year, not at all). It's out today, though, so I had to definitely get it saved - just in case it snows tonight, or some ungodly thing. It's a color that I, personally, would never wish to be caught in public wearing ... but in the front yard come Springtime? Nothing more lovely [in my opinion, anyway].

I had to google (just to make sure that what I'd been told was correct) . It was as my ol' Dad reported: a flowering crabapple.
See *here* It really is a gorgeous thing, despite its short-lived color, annually....

What a lovely tree, Gats!

I had taken this shot of my neighbour's tree before seeing your pretty tree. Guess we both like spring blossoms, eh?

I guess I'll add my flowering tree to the collection .



I don't know what kind they are, but they're all over the city, and they all bloom at the same time every year for a short while. It's a very pretty sight. This one is one of many in my grocery store's parking lot.

Yum, Gats, we will all have crab apple jelly.
Here is another shot of boats tied up on the Sai Kung waterfront

I've always liked the patterns in the brickwork of this house in South Perth.

There are lots of flowering Crabapple trees in my city, they're absolutely gorgeous, and I do wish the blossoms stayed longer. Kind of like the Tulip trees that only have huge, gorgeous flowers for a day or two and then drop them to make a pink 'carpet'. Neat brickwork, I agree, MotherGoose!

Lovely pictures, as always, everyone

I really like all the pictures of the trees, so pretty! Winter will be here soon, so everything is brown and grey...

And Taesma, I LOVE your avatar!

Great shots of the flowering trees. Shows you how different parts of the world bloom at different times. This is my flowering crabapple tree in front of my house.





As you can see it's not even close to blooming yet. Not till the end of May.

Lots of pretty flowering trees, and I love the two-headed goose, TW!

Yesterday my daughter bought herself a hamster of her very own, after enjoying the class pet for so long. This is our new little "Bean". He/she is about 5 weeeks old.

Awww, what a cute lil Bean!

Taesma, that tree might be a Bradford Pear or some other "flowering pear" -- no fruit, just flowers and leaves.

If anyone knows where I lost the cord that connects the camera to computer, let me know! I'm about to give up looking and go buy a replacement.

Sorry about the missing cord, Kapuskasing - I've missed the photos of your pooches!

Recently we joined an organic produce co-op, where the produce comes directly from the farmer to you, cutting out the grocery and making for very fresh goodies. It's like Christmas every week when we get our box. This was Saturday's, with potatoes, strawberries, garlic, shallots, bok choy, lettuce, mandarin oranges, tomatoes, and something that I don't recognize, but looks a little like tiny rhubarb.

I think maybe it's Swiss Chard, which I've never cooked with before. Any great recipes out there?

A strong rainbow appeared early this evening. What a downpour there was! Note the definite edge to the storm cloud just visible through the foliage:

MG that house is very similar to the arts and crafts ones near me I take for the door and window group. I was going to do a door today but will save it till I've done this one of the French market in Temple Fortune. I haven't had cassoulet for years but will now.
