Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

Beautiful bird photos Terry, have made comments on Flickr.

The early evening light is indeed wonderful.

Uschi all this food is making me fatter. :scared:

The last from me from the other day. Will have to try and get out again now.

The first flower is fascinating, especially since I have no idea what it is. :lol: :lol: :lol:

And the tulip is a feast for the eyes. Love the old shp front, too!!!

Jane bulgur salad isn't that fattening, lots of cucumber, tomato, lettuce and carrots in there.

Capt LIghtening we will be leaving from Dunbar.
Being shown the motor home and all its gubbins and foybles next Monday afternon. Belongs to a very good friend who lives in Cyprus but still has family here.

I am so looking forward to 'getting' away. Haven't had a holiday for a few years.

When I was young we used to 'camp' way up at Auchmelvich but road would be a bit narrow for a motor home. I did take my husband there about 40 years ago and it hadn't changed much.
We will definitely visit the east coast. Probably go down and then up west.

40 year ago we did a tour round, started in Edinburgh going up the east coast and down the west coast. Wonder if I still have some photos.

Scotland is a wonderous place.

I did, but I hasten to add that I used shop bought carrots. I didn't feel like making them myself this time. Maybe for Easter when I could also make a few nests.

The icing is less garish now.

The tulips were planed in the tubs by the Salle des Fête which belongs to the Town Hall, none of the other public beds are as pretty yet. :? I like the shop front too. :)

Forced tulips especially planted for those who were elected Terry. ;) I've since taken the cloud off, it didn't have any views, even though I rather liked it. :x The shop front got views and comments. :lol:

The carrot cakes looks delicious Uschi, but I'm not that keen on it. The one time I had it it was really dry and a bit tasteless, sort of put me off.

Here's some of the things I saw today.

I didn't think it was a honeysuckle as they flower in summer, but I've googled and yes, it could be "Lonicera x purpusii". Well spotted!!!

I like Clara, friendly but with a hint of scepticism.
Bertie is a soppy sweetie, as usual! Both the ducks and the moss look very springlike, too!!!

I thought Honey Suckle, but wasn't sure. Odd to see it at this time of year, but the seasons seem to have lost themselves. :o

Clara was very nice and had no problem about having her photo taken which was great. A nice easy one for my restart, though it took me a bit of time to pluck up the courage to ask someone. :lol:
Bertie is just adorable, I'd adopt him tomorrow given half the chance. :lol: :lol:
The ducks were all over the place yesterday, I think they're paring up and were very territorial. Fun to watch though. The moss looked very summery in the sunshine yesterday.

I took a walk round my old hunting ground, but it didn't feel like it did when we were living around there, so I'll have to find another walk for now on. Not so easy now we're in the centre of town though.

Hi Jane,
So back to chasing strangers & will look forward to seeing them,

The water birds in their breeding plumage is great to see,while we were out last time we watched the Great Crested grebesperform their mating dance it is wonderful to watch,

Dried out & wrinkled I think that describes me perfectly :lol: :lol: :lol:

WE need another couple of weeks for our Great crested Grebes to start their mating dance, I was lucky last year saw the male diving and bringing a fish to its mate. This was right beside Schweriner Schloss up near the Baltic coast there was at least 20 breeding pairs, smashing sight. I will try and get up there again when we are moving. They have a few nesting eagles around as well. Of course the area is famous for the Storks and Cranes, this is one their breeding areas.

Here are a few photos etc of the grebes that are on my Blog:

Sounds better than the last one I had Uschi, it was as dry as a bone and rather tasteless. :sprout:

Some more photos from me taken yesterday. I'll have to get out tomorrow, weather permitting to get some more, didn't get the time to go out today. :(

Richard, those mallards are lovely. As for the frogs, they are amazingly early.

Is Linda in Kur at the moment? D'oh, I didn't realise. It's a pity they sent her at this time of year.

Jane, that family portrait is marvellous! They look blissed out!

The doves and the doorhandle are great! As if they were part of a story.

The thing in the hairdresser's looks like an allium flower. I wonder whether it is just an ornament or whether there's a hair grip hidden in it.

I agree a allium flower, but I don't think it's one and I didn't see a hair grip. :?

Lovely coloured sky over you this evening.

A very chilled out family and there I was sitting on a dining room chair. :shock: As said I like the door handle too but have no idea what the things in the window is. :lol:

My guess is that the white allium is just something to decorate the window. And in all likelihood it's plastic or plastic and silk.

It's gone freezing cold here today. I got out for a very short walk but didn't feel like trying to find a stranger, just too cold to stop, plus there was almost no-one around.
But a few photos I took.

Thanks Terry,

It did the same to me the first time I downloaded it. However when I tried again I made sure I didn't allow it to choose my browser and haven't had problems since. It really was just a question of checking you say no to their browser.

Sorry, let me explain

It is a genreal rule of thumb that a good picture should be roughly divided into three parts, if you look at your picture it does it perfectly, the left hand bank, the river, the right hand bank, each taking up around 1/3 of the full picture.

I use it as much as possible altough some times depending on the subject it is not possible, the church roof for instance,
Hope that explains it

Perfectly, thank you Terry. Been taking photos since I was 7 and never knew that. :lol:

Just a few photos from the archives today. It's the coldest Feb that they can remember here at the moment and not going up until the end of the week. :(

Lovely! The markings on the tree are truly cryptic.
As for what's growing on the wall, that's prickly lettuce.

I'm jealous of the bottle in the river, I could have used that for the photo club. :D

It's cold here, too. Just -2°C, but it feels colder. And there's snow, too.

Don't be sorry Jane!!! I was just kidding!!

All that food looks yummy! I made a pasta sauce with fried chicken breasts and had Aldi's fresh stuffed pasta with it. Yum, yum.

We had some snow, too, overnight. Nothing too pretty, but I ventured forth to the graveyards to snap pictures anyway.

Here's my booty. I liked the angel in the second picture best. It's tiny, only two inches across, but it spread cheer in the snow.

So was I, I did think of your bottle competition when I uploaded it, but there wasn't anything I could do about it. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Now I'm hungry again. :hungry: :drool:
There wasn't much else to photo today, wasn't brave enough to venture out. :(

Lovely photos Uschi. I had to look at them via Flickr as the slideshow wouldn't play for me. Probably my Internet link rather than the slideshow. Made some comments and I agree the 2nd photo is cute. :D

Only -2°C here, so not too bad. I wore a fleece under my coat and my trusty fluffy pink gloves.

Not sure what the temperature is here at the moment, but it's snowing again. :(
Woolly gloves are a must out there. :)

The light was a bit dull, but I got to try out a few things. And there are some features I want to return to later.
I've noticed how many statues have damage to their hands. Sometimes it is vandalism, sometimes just decay. It might make an interesting series in the end.

Quite right Uschi, I thought the same thing myself, so much of interest out there

Just uploaded this on to flickr, Jane has already commented on it.
