A springtime image captured last year whilst the apple blossom was at its best.

Thank you for all your great comments and words of wisdom following yesterdays upload, with a special mention going to platzy (Stephen) for his most welcomed User Award.

Just got out of bed, so I am awaiting the effects of my morning tea to take effect before popping out to do some photography with my Support Worker, however I shall have to get wrapped up against the elements as it is somewhat chilly outside.

Well I hope you all have a great day ahead, bye for now.

Regards as always Nathan

Lovely photo, I first thought spring may have come near you. I know I wake each day in spring looking for signs of it - some clematis and peony shoots are showing in our garden. I hope you find a nice subject or two today sir.

One of my favourite subjects Nathan, I love flowers and blossoms. This is really good - never easy to get the white right! I am having a bit of fun trying to guess what your image will be from the title that appears in my email notification - I got this one right!
