        1. Thank you for your lovely feedback. I’m afraid I’m not special at all, but I’m both deeply flattered and humbled that should think it ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. What lovely photographs. You really have Spring there. We don’t.

    The bird: Guinea fowl. I didn’t know this word, but I had an idea of what kind of bird it was in Swedish. I googled that, saw in Google Images that I was right. Then I looked up this bird in Swedish Wikipedia, because you can choose to read the article in other languages, and that way I got the name in English. Cool, huh? ๐Ÿ˜Œ

    1. Haha, I love the way you got at the Guinea fowl – and, believe it or not, I sometimes follow the same procedure when I’m looking for something very specific!

      We have summer here more than spring – at least vegetation-wise. The trees have come out of blossom and are just boring green now.

      1. It’s a good way, with Wikipedia ๐Ÿ˜Š

        Maybe Spring will start tomorrow — temp is going up to 20ยฐ, and stay there for a few days.

        1. I still haven’t put away winter clothes – I’m scared to do it for the second time, since I already moved them all once and the next day the temperatures dropped drastically, so after a few days of freezing and trying to be brave, I had to take the coat and boots and all out again. I’m not repeating the same mistake now.

  3. It looks so Spring-y there! I’m green with envy. Rebekah’s right. We don’t have Spring in Atlantic Canada yet. Your “delightfully dead blossom”, from what I can tell, is a tree peony. Mine bloomed on the first of July last year.

    1. Hopefully you being green with envy will soon stop being the only green around and you’ll get your share of spring too. I love the blogosphere – one can post a bunch of pictures and get answers for what they show! I was too lazy to try to Google either the Guinea fowl or the peony, but now I know, thanks to you. Until I forget it again.

      1. The only good thing to come out of all the rain we had this week was that the lawn went from brown to patchy green. One of the green patches was almost my project 365 photo, but I had another one (or two) I liked better.

        1. We have so much green here now that it hurts my eyes in fact. But I’m not going to make you any more envious.

          Your 365 project is one that I hugely admire. Mine was just about snapping a random phone pic, yours is much more ambitious and successful.

          1. I feel like I’m getting lazy with my 365 now that I’m on the home stretch. I looked back today and realized that my earlier photos were so much better than what I’m shooting now.

          2. Well, I’m not noticing anything, I always find your 365 photos appealing. And your project is drawing to its end too, isn’t it!

          3. Yes, it is! May 28th will be day 366. I’m going to do the leap year bonus day.

          4. Great! I hope there will be also a summary post of your best shots ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m your fan, as you’ve probably guessed.

          5. There will be a bonus day, but it isn’t going to be anything special. I’m out of energy. I’m looking forward to it being over. I’m only doing the extra day so that I won’t later regret not making the full year. Damn, leap year!

          6. I think I see what you mean. I’m a bit tired with my 365 project too right now. It’s not that I don’t enjoy it, I just don’t enjoy it every. single. day. Which I’m afraid is the point of a 365 project ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

          7. Yes, some days it’s a (much needed) relaxing break. Other days it feels like a chore. I typically really enjoy it about 4 or 5 days of the week. The other days, it stresses me out.

    1. My slightly crooked sense of humour usually inspires raised eyebrows rather than approval, so thanks ๐Ÿ™‚
