Spring has sprung

Spring is in the air. And a young man's thoughts turn to...GOLF.

I played for the first time last Wednesday and albeit a bit rusty from the long layoff, my game was pretty good. I'm looking forward to the season with anticipation, just like every one of the last 35 years. With an eye toward practicality, I invested in a cart bag. This type is intended to be strapped to the back of a cart, not carried on your back. If I decide to walk, I can always rent a pull cart from the course.

Over the winter I became interested in photographing birds for the first time. I got a bird feeder and suet block. Soon birds appeared that I not only didn't realize that we had, but couldn't identify . Some quick internet searching remedied this woeful lack of knowledge on my part. Here are a few pics. You guess the bird.

My one non bird picture is a daffodil with special significance. My mom planted it over 20 years ago, and in spite of total neglect, it has bloomed every spring. It even survived a total relandscape . Here it is.
