This is what I see over my garden wall. I'm so fortunate to be living in a village that has a farm next to it. Baby was lying soaking up the sun while mother was keep a watchful eye on my activities.
Shetland is sometimes not kind to long stemmed flowers due to the wind, but sometimes the breeze just tiptoes through the tulips leaving them intact.
I don't usually have favourites of my own work but I make an exception for these. I was walking through the village with my daughter and we sidetracked down around the waterfront where we found this old rusting container. My daughter said it would make a good place for a photo shoot which surprised me because she dislikes photos being taken of her. I'm not a people photographer but liked the way these turned out. We found we had the company of a local friendly cat which added to the enjoyment.

Cost it took so long to fake it
And I never want to get that wet again

The weather is not always kind to us in spring here in Shetland, but the odd day with sunshine and blue sky brings out the best in birds and blossoms. Love the little sparrows who happily chirp away even before the food arrives. A lesson there somewhere I would say.
I hope you like what I bring here from the Shetland Islands. It will not only be landscapes but other images I hope you will find enjoyable. Thank you!
