Plenty blossoms this year, and hopefully with the bees being out a better crop of fruit to be had later, especially after last years soggy offerings.

Criticism of other peoples pics is a "norm" for Mick.

Yet his pics often include his "ladies bike", or his shadow...

Both of which are no-no's in scene photography Wink

Sorry Art, talking about Ladies bikes when you are in the company of Scottish fellas has a rude connotation....I thought you were going down that track.....Mea Culpa......My hubby is from Aberdeen.....and they were always talking about ladies bikes...... Wink
