Thanks guys
The canal shot was taken this morning inside the marina, and it was just by chance that the boat was going under the bridge just as the Sun started to break through and the fog lifted a little.

It is a bright and sunny spring day here in south London

I can always tell when spring is here when the tree outside my kitchen window explodes with bloom!!



I went for a walk in the park to get a few pictures.

The old water tower looks good surrounded with blossom.



However most of the trees are still to get their leaves and make great silhouettes against the sun.



Although a close look reveals the leaves are on the way.



And even my much maligned home town looks better on a sunny spring Sunday.

Very nice shots.

Reminds me of when I was young and the town we lived in at the time hade several roads that had cherry trees along them, one in particular was always very impressive when the blossoms all came out.

We've just had a brilliant sculpture unveiled on the shore of Half Moon Bay...it's only been there a matter of days yet hundreds of people have been drawn down to the shore to admire it...

I couldn't make my mind up whether it looks better in colour or monochrome...these are 4 of around 200 I've taken already... 😊

I like them all.

Spring has arrived in the Northern Hemisphere. I hope you all will go out and take some pictures and come back here to share them with us.

A lot of our contributors are very good photographers, and that may put some of you off. But please don't let it. We're just interested in seeing what's happening in your lives through photographs. They don't have to be artist-quality.

So please post. Anything that you photograph yourself is welcome. A trip to the gardens? A hike in the woods? Let's see it!

Wonderful.

You need to consider submitting some of your pictures to somewhere like, BBC - England's Big Picture

The honeysuckle in my back yard is blooming. The hummingbirds love the flowers. There used to be a LOT more honeysuckle in the yard. It used to cover the whole back fence between my yard and my neighbor's yard - ooh and it smelled sooooo good - then the idiot neighbor decided to "trim off the dead parts," not realizing that he was killing the live parts by doing so. Oh man he made me angry! But the honeysuckle has survived in the spots he couldn't reach, and it looks like it's coming back in some of the spots where he tried so hard to kill it. These photos are from the part he couldn't reach. I used my iPhone 7 to take these pix so they're really nothing special (imho).









I have several of these popping up in my back yard. It's just a weed, I guess. I don't think I've ever seen it before in my yard. I should note that my back yard is dirt and weeds, almost exclusively. I'd put down some grass seed, but the chickens would eat it all (and probably get sick and/or die thanks to the crap they add to the seed to make it more likely to grow). Is it just me, or do the leaves look like something that might be good in a salad? (No, I don't plan to taste it.)



This rose bush has been doing very well since before I bought this house in 1994. (It was here when I bought the house.) It blooms even during the winter if it's warm enough (and it usually is) and wet enough. Sorry the first one is sideways. It wasn't when I edited it. I'll try to fix it.







And, finally, I've always wanted a (decorative) windmill in my front yard. I recently saw this one online and ordered it. It was, um, "fun" putting it together. I finally got it outside today. It does nothing functional. It just looks good (imho). It does spin with the wind. I have a short video. I'll see if I can upload it somewhere. I live in central Texas so a windmill isn't an unusual decoration to have on one's lawn.

I am currently uploading my windmill "movie" to my private website. I don't
know if it's going to work, but if you click on this URL, we'll both find out!

http://www.zannpix.com/windmill.mov

At the moment there's still five minutes before it's fully uploaded.
Be patient!

I'm logging off so I won't know if it works until later.

Edit: I didn't log off. It works for me. Hopefully it will work for you.
