Hi members,

Hard to believe it's April - any ideas for photo themes this month?

Thx!

Maybe now is the time to do something with spring? If spring ever gets here, anyway... *sigh* Maybe if we did a spring theme, it would shame Mother Nature into warming us up!

How about Just the theme Green - that way we can add green if none can be found naturally?

That sound OK with me . I am only seeing mud where I live.

Yikes! I thought spring had finally arrived here on Monday. Tomorrow we are to receive freezing rain and then snow for Saturday
Something green sounds interesting.....gonna try and get a close-up of Tiggers big green eyes.....might take a while as he is not the most patient of subjects!

I like GREEN yes I hope soon.....

Green works for me, too! Even if Mother Nature doesn't cooperate!

i kind of feel bad as i have green here.. and nice warm weather.. the kids and dogs have been on the trampoline and i usually take the dogs for a walk with no sweater as it nice and warm here.. i guess living in BC does has its bright side.

I haven't contributed in a long while - so here we go :



We were down in Hilton Head, SC recently and this was taken at one of the nature preserves that we explored. Loki's collar is green, plus look at the vegetation... green green green (much nicer than the snow and brown I'm still seeing here at home!)

Beautiful shot, LO! Loki is handsome as ever!

I went out looking for something green today....no luck...at least nothing low enough to photograph a dog against... I could probably get a bird in an evergreen tree--would that count?

Nothing green outside yet, but there's always my much sought-after Yucca plant (great for flossing!).

This is Umiak, picking out the most succulent of the leaves:


This one should do nicely:

You're still greener than us, Lynne&Co--but we're expecting some rain in the next couple of days that should really green us up quickly

Twiggy, you look Mah-vel-ous, Dah-link! Simply Mah-vel-ous!!!! I can tell she works hard to keep in shape all winter, Marko!

Ha! Love the zoomie one!!! And I've always loved the green-pawed Mollie shot!

So what kind of stories does Layla tell?

Ironically, the story they were reading the day she visited the school was about adopting a puppy!

Layla has such a gentle soul and was so good with the children.

Great peek-a-boo shot Marko!

A Sheriff zooming always brings a smile to my face Hazel. But then again, any pics of the pack always bring a smile to my face.
