Signs of Spring

I went for a nice long walk this morning looking for signs of spring. I know some of you are totally fed up with winter and would appreciate some fresh colors and signs of life so here are a few things I found blooming Amongst The Oaks.

A daffodil bud.

Ornamental Cabbage.



Almond blossoms.

And now a note regarding Blogger. Has anyone else noticed that uploading photos is erratic? I thought I had it all figured out: you load the photo you want to be last first and the photo you want to be first last, but lately it's been different. I do know that if you move the photos around after they are uploaded they cannot be clicked on to enlarge so I try not to do that, but it sure is frustrating trying to get the photos in the order you want!

First of all, your pictures are pure bliss~just so crystal clear and gorgeous. You have put a big smile on my face and a "spring" in my step!! Ha Ha!! :-)

I am glad you brought up the loading of the pictures because I thought it was just my own computer ignorance! I am having the same problem as you. And I am also having a problem with writing text before the picture, I can only click on under the 1st picture so my post always starts with the picture under the title. I don't mind this too much but it doesn't leave much chance of an introduction before the 1st picture. Do you know what I might be doing wrong??

By the way, I really do love coming to your blog, it is always something new and interesting and I love that you are very straightforward and not a lot of fuss, do you know what I mean??

Have a great weekend!

Lovely spring photos - I can use the lift.

I have found that if I use Mozilla Firefox for editing the blog I don't have those problems - and if I move the photos in Foxfire you can still click to enlarge them.

Firefox is a free download and lots of people love it - sure loads faster the IE or Opera.

These pictures are magnificent! You do awesome photography! I love these pictures.

Regarding text before pictures, I hit the space bar and the picture moves down allowing you to get the cursor before the first picture. Happened on that one quite by accident one day.
