April 8. It was a beautiful spring day in Seattle yesterday and warm enough for some of the native flowers to come out - it has been cold enough that alders are about a month behind (catkins are not out) which is a relief to allergy sufferers. I spent the morning trying to capture the flowers on a native gooseberry (Ribes spp.) but it was a fairly breezy day. Finally got out the extension rings in order to isolate the subject more and got more of an impressionistic result.
Thank you for your welcoming comments and compliments from Friday - they were very much appreciated. I am amazed at how much talent and creatively is on display on this site; It is a privilege to be part of this Community. Regards,
