Day 110: Cherry Blossoms - April 20.  The cherry blossom trees are almost at full peak bloom at Branch Brook Park in Newark New Jersey. With over 4,000 trees, it is a glorious sight.  Still processing the images that I took over the weekend and hope to get back once more when the rain and wind that we are having clear out.
April 19...    I think this is the seeds of the pillow tree

Scilla is blooming everywhere around here.  It naturalizes so easily that vast patches, drifts, hillsides, swales of it abound.  In combination with the ever-present brilliant yellows of forsythia and daffodils, they shout 'Spring is here!'  DP109-2015  Posted Sunday, April 19.  Taken April 17, Hidden Lake Gardens, Michigan  Title:  A Sea of Scilla  I appreciate all the kind comments on yesterday's shot of bloodroot blooms.

Another shot today of the Canna blooms that are still unfurled.  They have such great color it's hard not to frequently shoot & post lots of Canna photos.  No PP on this - just great evening light.  Thanks to everyone for their wonderful comments on my photos.  HAGD - Linda.
May 5...   Playing ducks and drakes. At a meeting with old friends we had fun at a beach on the mainland. We can't do it here as ours is only a sand-beach.  Ed asks what ducks and drakes is:  You take a flat stone. Throw it flat over the water, where it skips several times before it loses power and sink.  He who has most skips is the winner.
According to the interpretive legend for this tree: "Masks are worn during parades commemorating the month-long, end-of-the-year festivals celebrated in Brazil . . ."  It isn't clear whether people in Brazil actually decorate their Christmas trees with masks, or even if they use decorated trees at all as part of their Christmas or end-of-the-year celebrations.  I doubt they use pine trees, spruce, or fir, as we do, at any rate.  (Full-sized versions of the individual masks can be seen starting here:  http://smu.gs/1suN6vD )  DP349-2014  Posted Monday, December 15; created December 14 from photos taken December 11 Those of you who have used layers in image processing in Photoshop or other software will recognize that I had to use a topography trick to create the view seen in this presentation of the four masks.  In fact, my motivation for creating this particular composite was just to see if I could pull off the trick.  I figured it out on my own, though I expect you could find write-ups and online tutorials for doing it if you searched.  Those of you who don't use layers can just ignore this part of the caption.

Sanderling - we enjoyed watching this guy/gal spin around and walk backwards looking for food in the water. Seemed oblivious to us.Taken on Maui.  I really appreciate the comments!
January 28... After a frosty night Blif and I had one of our daily walks. Although he had experienced snow and frost for the first time last year he had apparently forgotten all about it.  As you can see he is unable to understand why he can't pick up interesting stuff even when he can see it.
