A Grand day out

I have had a grand day today. I decided that the weather was just too nice to stay in so I took myself to Queens park in the middle of town. So easy to get to and with camera in hand I enjoyed myself no end. I even managed to get a decent photo of myself by putting the camera on a rock and sitting down on a lower rock which was just in front of the little lake with a willow tree for a backdrop.
I took lots of close up photos of the plants arrayed in their spring clothes, the Canada geese and the fountain playing in the middle of the lake.

I have also been doing some scrapping challenges Shimelle has a cyber crop this weekend and have managed three of the layouts all digi of course.

Today I am thankful for sunshine
a camera I love to use
and managing to get a decent photo of myself

Fab photos Mary and as always beautiful LO's :)

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
