Although I've not spent much time blogging the past few weeks, I'm healthy again finally. I've had energy to spend lots of time with my sister. That's been great since she'll be leaving for Alaska next week and probably won't return until December. I've also started evening Adult Ed classes from 6-9 pm on Tuesdays & Thursdays to learn the features of Word 7. My yard is more colorful all the time and I continue to take lots of photographs as I learn more about my Nikon D60.
This is my very first daffodil & yellow iris bud this year!

Love the beach transportation stuff - surfing cracked me up, but hey, I guess they do get from point A to point B, and the board "transports" them there ;)

As always, you're sharing some great shots from your colorful and charming neighborhood. Looks like spring is well underway in your parts too! Glad you're feeling better...happy Sunday!

Aisha said...

Great shots you got here! The surfing looks awesome!

Louise said...

I love the ocean, though in the course of my life have not spent that much time there. AND the beaches I have were cold ones more than not. So I haven't seen a lot of surfers... maybe one or two in my life. I think I could watch that all day... just the surf coming in and going out.

What a great collection of shots! These are really great. I'm going to go back and take an even closer look. :-)

Your photos are great. I enjoyed viewing them. They make me impatient for summer! :)

Lovely collages again. Liked the surfing one in particular but I must say that you have such a beautiful front garden. So clean and well kept too.

Karen said...

Gorgeous photos--I especially love the yard shadows. Glad you're feeling better!

Hey Harriet said...

Great photos. Some of that beach transportation looks like fun. Glad you're feeling better.

My flowers are starting to bloom too. I just love Spring, especially this year as I need that promise of new beginnings.
