|I really believe that we have seen our last snowfall. It looks as if spring is here to stay. The daffodils are all blooming, and the wintertime drab is being replaced by springtime pastels.|
|Human with camera arrived at the river. This is the dock for River Lea. It needs some repair. It was too difficult to get on the dock so I took the picture from the shore.|
|After going to the dock, I walked down the trail and took a few pictures of the river.|
|This is the view from the lagoon at Beaver Island State Park.|
|A long time ago, there were houses where there is now a trail. They were the houses of wealthy people, who also had homes in Buffalo. All of the houses but River Lea were torn down to make space for the golf course.|
|This is a little tea set that’s on display in the hutch in the living room of River Lea.|
|These are also on display.|
|Many things have been donated to the Grand Island Historical Society.|
|Well, I had to photograph this just because it exists!|
|Really pretty. I wonder how this was done.|
|Mirrors and reflecting surfaces! So much fun!|
|Shiny, shiny silver. Here is my reflection in the shiny silver.|
|Tuesday was primary day. I spent the entire day working as an election inspector at a fire truck house. The fire trucks were moved to the parking lot for the day so that we would have adequate space for our polling place.|
|People brought small children, who were fascinated by the fire trucks.|
|It was a real pleasure to work with this group of people. I enjoyed spending the day with them.|
|Half of an orange and a clementine.|
|I walked to my doctor’s office, about three and a half miles away, for my regular appointment. It was a lovely, sunny spring day.|
|I’ve seen all varieties of daffodils but this is the first time that I’ve ever seen an all-white daffodil. I checked on line and discovered daffodils with bright red centers. I would love to see that in person!|
|Notice how the center is shaped with very curly leaves.|
|This is another color scheme for a daffodil. It sort of reminds me of an egg!|
|Floral arrangement on an ornamental gate.|
|This is a close up view of a hyacinth.|
|As I was walking home, I saw this helicopter, which I first thought was a low-flying UFO.|
|The helicopter was visiting a pre-school. It was very adventurous and exciting for the children, as well as for the adults.|
|A good time was had by all.|
|Vivid color in flower pots.|
|Lovely arrangement at Stella Niagara.|
This is a different view of the same arrangement.
|This week’s painting was an imitation of stained glass.|
On Thursday evening, I went to Daemen College to listen to Kathy Kelly give a talk at the Latin American Solidarity Committee event.
|Vicki Ross, the executive director of the Western New York Peace Center, introduced Kathy Kelly.|
|On Friday, I walked to Huth Road Elementary School to take pictures of the Viking Values lunch. It is a time for kids to have some relaxation at school. They can buy little trinkets and they can play games at lunchtime.|
|I walked back home and saw that, across the street, a tree was being cut down.|
|On Friday afternoon, I went to the high school for the five hour driving class. These are some “people” in the classroom.|
Next week: More adventures. The next entry may be late because the computer has to go to the “computer hospital” for treatment of an ailment.

Amazing pictures, I have to say my favorite has to be the goose
All the best
Love the "egg" daffodil. I collect tea pots and the ones you photographed were pretty!
LOL about the geese who could learn a thing or two about posing for pictures! And, oh, those flower pictures were so GORGEOUS! I hope you are right, that spring has come to stay where you are.
Love the photos of the flowers – and the peacock feather. Thanks for sharing
Love daffodils – first, because there are so many types, and second, because they are so reliable here in the Southern Tier of upstate New York. We don't have deer problems but you are right – deer love tulips, but don't like daffodils. I hope spring is finally here for you. Cross fingers, I think it is finally here for us.
