Hi Wild Goose - you are number 1! Yeahhh!!

I've done the other seasons, I have to do spring! Hard to think about when we still have snow here on the ground in Michigan and nothing much is growing yet. Mom's forsythia is starting to bud out though, so I am hopeful.... :)

Please sign me up!

Me too please. Wish I had logged on earlier and seen this one. We have just started to get sunshine and my hubby mowed the lawn yesterday. All the clippings go into our recylce bin and I opened the lid today to pop some cardboard in thereand there were several ladybirds, two spiders and a gorgeous hairy caterpiller all sat on the top of the clippings or trying to climb up the sides of the bin.

Sorry if it sounds sad but I had to rescue each and every one of them (spiders only with the help of a glass) and as I was putting them back in the garden I noticed dozens and dozens of ladybirds. Spring is definatley springing around here :spinny:

I know what you mean about the snow Camilla - we still have the stuff - and below freezing as well! Altho it is supposed to improve this week!
I'm sorry 3Katz - those would have been great shots! Haven't seen anything like that yet! Mowing the lawn??!! What's that - still have snow! lol
Can't wait to see all those signs of spring!

The announcement for this swap came just in time. For a few days in spring there are a lot of blossoming trees very close to my house. Don't know exactly what kind of tree it is, but it probably belongs to the Prunus family. A perfect subject for this swap. Bev, the cards will go into the mail later this week. Here are the pictures:

Its amazing the beautiful things you miss on a day to day basis...found a weed that has flowered and its lovely - not sure how it will look when downloaded.

Managed to get a few ladybird pictures as well although they werent a cooperative bunch when it came to standing still.

Tried to get a bumble bee but I think she saw me coming and flew off in the opposite direction....oh boy...think I will stick with still life :rolleyes:

Nothing is blooming yet here -- grrrrrr......

The forsythia is about to pop, though, so I hope for some lovely bright yellow pictures soon! And the trees have buds, so maybe there will be leaves one on these days.....

Ooohhh....I am so impatient for spring! Especially now that I want to take photographs!

Sounds good - still lots of time! I'm still waiting for spring! We are back to freezing weather today!

WildGoose
04-16-2011, 03:54 PM
No news flash here!

It's snowing again here, right now , Camilla...if no stopping by another week it's off to the garden centre!:nah:

HMM-nn maybe I can show the ice breaking up on the river and bare brown patches of ground showing through...that 's Spring here so far!

....( and for all you folks who thought of Canada as a frozen North land....at this point at the foothills of the Rockies...it's just about true!
At least we know from years of experience - and the weather channel, and the newspaper* - the Seasons DO change...question is how long Winter lasts ANY given year )...

* ( and anecdotal reports , and legends passed down amoung the generations... ):wideeyed:

04-16-2011, 04:01 PM
We've got the colder weather back - but at least we are only getting rain! Sorry Wild Goose! i have been despairing as well about spring! If it gets much later I'll have to extend the swap due date!! - June maybe?? lol

Here are my photo's which I will post off to you next week arlie707.

The first one is a ladybird on one of my trees.
The second one was one of the first daisy I have seen so far, took this pretty early so if you look closely you can see dew drops on the lower petals.
The third one was of some lovely flowers at the back of my dads house.
The fourth one is the entrance to a small park, passed there again yesterday and took another photo and cant believe how much it has changed in just over a week.

Really enjoyed getting out and about taking these arlie, great swap idea.

I figured out how to make it work -- uploaded photos to Picasa and then ordered prints from Walgreens! Please count me in!

I'll make the cards from these shots - all in my yard, last week.

arlie07, I hope there's still room for me here.

@Wil - Love the white trees. We have something like that here in my part of Michigan. This one section road turns into a white tunnel for about 6 days. It's magical, just like your Top photo.

@SOTO - The bee photos are great!

@theweavershand - Spring in Texas looks lovely and warm. the cactus photo is my fave.

@3katz - Wow. Thanks for the in-thread description of each. I love the detail on each, and the ladybug is a great one.

@AnnaAardvark - I used to live in Pennsylvania & Jersey & Delaware. Longwood Gardens is a wonderful place to go, and I am so jealous!

@memhill - delightful!

@RedHeartStudio - I have a friend in Tucson, and yet I forget spring *does* mean cacti. (theweavershand, too) Colorful!

*Waves hi back to Camilla* Now it is raining. Spring should not be slushy...altho' arlie07, you did say mud was an option.... No! If I give in to that thought, Spring will never come! I must believe that flowers will bloom!

Spring swept me up so much, and I had such a hard time choosing just a few cards. I'll post pics here soon, and I'll have my extras in my gallery soon. Thanks for reminding me to stop and smell the flowers. Once they arrived, that is!

Here are my photos. This is my first photo swap!! April showers (2 top pics) bring May flowers (bottom 2 pics). It was so hard to narrow all the photos down to just 4. I'll have more posted in my gallery soon. I'm so glad that our "white tree corridor" blossomed in time for this swap! I feel so happy about sunshine!

Bev, my cards should've been there long before now. I am worried. :eek:

I am sending a second batch out today but if nothing arrives before you swap, please withdraw me and keep the cards as my thank you for hosting this swap. If nothing else, I truly enjoyed getting out in the springtime and finding those lovely scenes to photograph.

I will doublecheck my cards Anna and Fox Artist. But don't worry - I will wait for your cards. Sometimes it takes forever between the US and Canada - and other times less than a week!
Tiffany your gorgeous cards arrived today! Thanks so much for the hostress card and the money for postage.

I will probably do the summer one closer to the end of May - report cards hopefully will be almost finished!

The last weekend of May is a holiday here in the USA - Monday May 30th is Memorial Day, and many people go out of town for the weekend preceding it. Maybe you could please wait to post it until afterward, so we US folks will get a chance to sign up before it is full?
