First Blooms!!

We have got the first little diddy flowers coming up in our garden. I am so chuffed, I love seeing the first blooms.

Here's some pics:

Aren't they cute!

I'm so looking forward to spring with the new shoots growing and leaves sprouting on the trees. We have some beautiful trees on the green across the road from us and they look gorgeous covered in leaves......they look so bare at the moment.

I'm getting very keen to get a new camera too, I'm not supposed to be getting one until this time next year but I'm getting very impatient. Someone I know is very kindly going to lend me his
camera while he's away on holiday. He has one of the Canon EOS range cameras, not sure which one (he couldn't remember either) and it will be great to have a bit of a play before I decide on what to buy. I'm really torn between the Canon EOS 400D and the Nikon D80 but I'll keep researching. Probably by the time I get round to buy one there will be a whole load more to look at LOL!

Anyway, my bit of creativity for today is some ATC's I've done for a swap on UKS. It is signs of the Zodiac and I was chuffed when my sign, Virgo, wasn't taken.

I've got the same problem Di, I'm not sure whether to go for the D80 or the Canon 400D! I almost bought the 400D today, but thought I better research some more.
The 400D is so much more comfortable to hold than the Nikon though, my hands felt weird holding it and it weighed a ton!
Then there is the price difference! Lots to think about isn't it?!

Love the flowers, they look so dainty and pretty. :o)
