Well spotted Stiki ;I love stikibuds , they remind me of infant school when they were in a jam-jar on the window -sill in the classroom ( along with beans in tall jars growing with blotting paper , and tadpoles ) .
Not seen any here yet , the weather is too irratic I think .
Yesterday was a dream , but today cold and wintery again .

I think you are a few days ahead of me up here Sticki. Love fresh bursting leaves, the Willows are so new and bright right now.

willows turning now, lovely arent they ~ one of my favourite trees, after larch and cedar

If you go and take a close look now (I don't mean right now) they have a little catkin. I have been trying and failing to get a close up of it.

oh i missed that! i couldnt go now, its dark and probably an hours journey from here as well as no lights on the common ~ not sure i could find it.

will look out for them though.

going to Cookham tomorrow then Devon on monday ~ have to see if i can find any.

I think you need a rest from your new camera Sticki.....gizzit:-) Even if I had it, I know my pics wouldn't turn out like yours even if I could learn how to use it:-)

Four days till real spring gattina?
Thanks DD

It's not a new camera BA, in fact it has a scratch on the lens and I dropped it yesterday! And it's easy to use, I don't do anything complicated with it. I can't remember all those plant names nor do I know so many as you do, camera would be easy peasy for you!

Wow how amazing is that, all the different parts of the leaf competing against each other, love yor photos sticki your'e very gifted;0)

You'll only make her big headed Carole;-) Sticki....you forget I'm a technophobe, I will need a new camera soon, but it must be very basic. I just have a Fujifilm Finepix j20 and it took me ages to get used to it:-))

17 Mar, 2012

 

lol I only have my camera in my mobile lol;

17 Mar, 2012

 

Carole, I can't use a phone camera lol. My phone only makes & receives phone calls and texts. You are way more advanced than me:-)

17 Mar, 2012

 

Me ADVANCED IN AGE MAYBE LOL

17 Mar, 2012

 

PP you are much too kind
Ba you could easily use this camera - you don't have to use all it's functions, I don't - by a long way!
You both made me laugh!
