After all our complaining about the long, cold and wet winter it's finally Spring! The weather has warmed up during the day to the mid-teens Celsius (low 60s F) and everywhere I look I see the flowers and trees starting to bloom. Soon the lilacs will be out in full force and I'm so looking forward to photographing them again this year. I wish I had a lilac bush, but they take so long to grow and to yield their beautiful scented flowers. I guess I'll just have to satisfy myself with long walks in the neighbourhood to admire those in other people's gardens. Here are a few shots I took last year on my rounds.
- Delta, British Columbia, Canada
- I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.
