At this time of year there is an orchestration of new life that enhances the countryside and gardens with a plethora of blooms and foliage. This hub is meant as a visual display of this new life.

      You know, I can just see you angling your camera just to get the perfect shot, the close up of each wild flower, and then to catch that bird with all the bight colors. Thank you once again for touching my soul with your passion....
