It's the law of averages Flori - if I take enough shots, some will turn out ok! Glad you like 'em :-)

Awww, so humble Muddy :) Accept the credit, you deserve it. I have not produced a single pic 1/2 as good as yours. Flori is bang on!!!

Thanks Sticki . . . I'm tempted to say 'roll on Spring', but I actually enjoy all four seasons. (Easily pleased me . . lol!).

Photo opportunities at every turn! I don't mind which season either, although I don't like it too hot!
