Re: Late Winter Bits and Bobs.

Well the sun came out so I just spent an hour in the greenhouse, the French Strawberries needed tidying up, so dead stuff removed and top dressing applied, looks almost organized in there now. Once I can put out the pots that over winter in there, I can do some proper preparation.

Re: Wildlife photographs

More than happy to both give and receive comments, remember one thing with creating image, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, if you are happy, that is the most important thing, whether painting or photographing.

Re: Mid Winter Bits and Bobs.

Well the hospital just rang and I am due to try again a week tomorrow, just hope it's not cancelled again, my daughter is the only person who can take me in and bring me back, a major inconvenience for her really and a 100 mile round trip.

Re: Wildlife photographs

The Mountain or Blue Hare is the one that turns white in winter and is our only native Hare(or rabbit for that matter), the one above is the lowland Brown Hare, much bigger with longer ears and no white coat.
There is one of my pictures of a Mountain Hare on page 3 of this thread.
