One of the great things about Spring is all the flowers and blossom that appear. I really enjoy photographing flowers. I feel like they make some of my best pictures!
I have absolutely no idea what kind of bird this is. Look at that crazy beak! I really don’t think I’ve seen a bird like it before. On my first glimpse I thought it was a magpie, because of the black and white body, but when it turned around and I saw the beak it…
There’s a little beach about 10 minutes walk from Thing 1’s home. Recently when I’ve had later finishing work days we’ve walked down to the beach after the boys have their post-nap snack.

I can see out onto the balcony when I’m sitting at my desk. Now that we’re keeping the balcony door open most of the time this means that I can see what the cats are up to when they’re out there. They definitely like the opportunity to be on the balcony!
It’s getting beautifully springlike here in Finland. Or at least in our part of it. The last few days have been lovely. Warm and sunny. Flowers are starting to grow. The grass is turning greener. And buds are appearing here, there and everywhere.
Early this afternoon I was snuggling on the bed with Sampson. I had my snuggie on at the time, and when I got up to leave I had to slip out of it so as not to disturb the cat. He’s been sleeping on it pretty much non-stop since then!
Sometimes bystanders can really make a photo. The pop of colour from this person’s coat, for example, really adds to the scene. Well, I think so in any case.
