Post your "blog" contributions here  ;D

No theme (other than what the passage of time creates), no contest implied, a maximum of one picture per day in the actual month and no more than 4 images per month for NG members, up to 30(31 )for Supporters. You can distribute the contributions as once per week if you so prefer.

The posted picture(s) must be taken within the designated time period.

Don't forget the palindrome date 02.02.2020 :) Perhaps we'll see something extraordinary from that date?

Lovely and delicate, Akira.

And a beautiful Yellow, by the way.

Unusually hot for the time of the year -- January 2020 was the warmest since temperature measurements commenced in my country. Snow is long gone, but spring flowers hesitate to appear. Perhaps they sense the fallacy of an early spring? Even though ambient temperatures now have climbed to +8C.

A preamble to say I look forward to have flowers to work with once again -- meanwhile, I enjoy Akira's contribution.
