IPhone Apps

I just upgraded my IPhone and for a good reason.

There are camera apps galore for the new IPhones and I want them all.
I immediately downloaded a free 360 app with a sketch  feature.
This is the first picture I took with the new phone.
I'm gonna have a ball with this thing!!

Good Fences ~ Stone Fences

The stone fence runs the length of the road. 
A small gate on the side.

Over that last hill is the Irish sea.

Note Card Party ~ Happy Easter

I decided to celebrate both April and 

get a head start on Easter.

All of these photos have been published before because this April 
we still have snow.

These pictures were taken last night before it got cold and the 
crap stuff started to stick to everything.

It's still on the ground today!

Oh boy do I need practice with Macro Photography!!!

This may not be the most beautiful shot you have ever seen but it is mighty beautiful to me.
My faithful chives sprouting there little snouts. Yeah!!!

And just a few inches from those chives a leaf that hung on to the bush 
all through this brutal winter we had.

Thanks To Donna for hosting

The Trail

Just ahead is the Nippersink trail. 
Most natural areas in Northern Illinois have Indian names.

As the weather warms I will be spending more time on these trails.
They are closed in winter except for those brave cross country skiers.

Lake Michigan

Took a ride to the lake yesterday.

Kind of gloomy,cold and windy but still beautiful
One lonely bench... Waiting

This area sits up on a bluff with the beach about 20 feet below.
I wonder why they named the town Lake Bluff??
