Lovely Mad. 8)

With the weather looking like it's going to steadily improve towards the weekend, I'm hoping to photo some Bluebells on my days off (assuming that they are in bloom then).

The ones in my garden are :)

One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Pfft! Overprotective fathers! :D My father is forever claiming to be all ready to go back to his army camp to pick up a convenient rifle at the littlest and most absurd provocations.

It's what fathers are for :D . Budda (dont even know his real name) refuses to come here now as Joakim (my big son) has told him I am going to break his fingers if he lays a hand on Linea :D, and told him all about my sawn off shotgun :shock: (I havn't got one really but Budda doesn't know that).

Good lad, you don't want just anyone dating your daughter! And with Brother around, Budda might get scared off and she can find someone more suitable.
My Dad, quiet fella, didn't say much, used to have a 'look' when I had a boyfriend. The look said "unsuitable" or "waster" or "forget it, you are not going out with HIM!"
But the wierd thing was, they all liked my Dad!

Beautiful, SW. Always had a soft spot for cactus since I had one when I was young.

Cactus flowers are incredible! It's such a thrill to see the desert in bloom and the amazing colours that you get. :D
