I’ve joined in with the worldwide blogging community take part in a WordPress course called Blogging 101. The aim of this course is to encourage/enthuse/energize/educate participants and basically improve our blogging. So far I’m enthused, energized, encouraged and teetering on the brink of being educated. (As a colleague of mine used to say, “Miracles take a little longer”).

Today’s challenge (yes, its a daily exercise) is to produce something with an element in it that is new to me.

What’s new about today’s blog is that I am committing myself to a series called “Throwback Thursdays”. My idea being to look back at old photographs and see what they bring to mind. And I intend to will  publish  one every Thursday.  I decided on the title because both words begin with ‘th” and a bit of alliteration never goes wrong.

Today’s picture was taken a few years ago and I’ve chosen it because I am so looking forward to Springtime:

I wish I could follow you directly on wordpress but maybe it is deactivated or something. Your pictures are great either way 😉

    Thank you. I do enjoy my photography. WordPress doesn’t host my site so that’s why following might be done differently. I’m certainly impressed by your blog. And I love the name!!

Good luck with your Thursday blog. A tough one to stick to but a nice challenge.

    Thanks very much. Yes, it seemed a good idea at the time, AND I’ve got to week 2 . Watch this space for week 52. LOL

What a beautiful photo. One thing I want to learn is photography. I love the Throwback Thursday idea. Good Luck!

    Thank you. Now I have to stick to my commitment!

I’m very intrigued by your throwback Thursdays because I too have thought of doing this. As a blogger, I have many good ideas that for whatever reason, I can’t get them posted. I thought it would give me a great reason to write them anyway. Love the image. I love to take photos too, and use my own images on my site, but most of mine are quick shots.

    Thanks for your encouraging comments. Looking forward to reading more of your posts and seeing images.

Such a great idea and what a beautiful picture! Look forward to seeing more. Just out of interest, where was it taken?

    Thanks. I think this was taken at MartinMere WWT reserve a few years ago.

Such a great shot – makes you just want to snuggle him LOL

    Thanks. Yes, I remember too that he was the brave one who ventured away from Mum to have a look at a strange human with a camera.

I'm always pleased to read comments.....
