Hi All,
Well I got up to Gambrill yesterday, and I'm sad to say I was rather disappointed. Spring is only very slowly coming to the park it seems, the Elms and Beech are still bare and there is little sign of life returning to the forest. So I spent most of my time sitting on a great Rock, watching a bee bumble about.

And although I did enjoy my hour or so out communing with nature, there was just very little to photo, or sketch; but I could not help but notice the tree's along Key parkway were in full flower, and so I got up fairly early intending to walk the parkway and take some snaps. Well its been raining since sometime last night; So I hope you wont mind joining me for a walk in the rain, I promise I'm the only one who needs to get wet. :)

I honestly don't know what these are, but I don't know a great deal about these thing; although I am hoping to invest a little time this year in learning a little more; in terms of the lore of trees; maybe even re-read the White Goddess.

Well I guess that's all today; sorry not everythings in the best of focus;but it captures the feel of it I think and maybe thats more important.

Brightest Blessings All, BB.
