kit Kat has nothing to do with cats or cat food ... Time for me to ''have a break'' for a cup of coffee.

By the way ... you never left a tip ;-)
Bill Phillips: Kitekat does though

Tip: Don't bet on the royal baby being called Alice

I will take your word for that
Bill Phillips: Honest there was!
It still amazes me, Bill, that after all these years, this is the FIRST that I've seen pussy willows in bloom...and now I've seen several images of them thus far. We Americans are totally naive about this phenomenon!
Bill Phillips: Better late than never Ginnie. They are delightful to see

Beautiful- you are following Ginnie and Lisl - spring is inspiring and encouraging us!
Bill Phillips: It is a wonderful time of year. I am growing sunflower seeds for Joseph

We call them "Weidenkätzchen"- because reminding of the soft coat of cats - "Die Bezeichnung geht auf sein fühlbar weiches Äußeres zurück, das mit weichem Katzenfell vergleichbar ist."
(I took also some photos of them, but they are not worth to be posted.)
Bill Phillips: This was the best of the ones i took Philine. The rest were no good !

Everyone's doing it now, Bill - you, me, Graeme, Paul.........
Bill Phillips: I know, it seemed a good idea at the time grin
We call them Kctacherean.

Typical of Mr Trim to be knocking off for a coffee already.
Bill Phillips: I am still recovering from having 5 meals a day.
Wonderfully captured with this background Bill!
Bill Phillips: Thanks very much Richard

I, too, would bet for 'Alice' - or 'Charlotte'!
Bill Phillips: I think it is time we had a Victoria smile
Aren't they pretty! Even with our snow our pussy willows are out. Spring has sprung.
Bill Phillips: Life returns Mary

Everyone has pussy willow on the brain this Spring!
Bill Phillips: You have half of it on the brain all the time Ray
A fine detailed shot of these pretty catkins Bill
Bill Phillips: Thanks Janet. Everything has looked glorious this spring
I remarked to somebody yesterday that we don't seem to see these round our way very much. I like the background,and the main subject as well, of course.
Bill Phillips: I have seen quite a few this year Brian

You take the pussy out of me. How can everyone see a cat in these flowers. Maybe they smell of cat's [email protected]#$?

The picture is well crafted.
Bill Phillips: They don't have that unfortunate smell Louis. Unlike oilseed rape....

Wonderful detail, Bill. I was hoping to see what camera this was taken with but nothing is shown.
Bill Phillips: Taken with the little Lumix TZ70 Alan

Lovely macro Bill
Bill Phillips: Thank you kindly Anne
Lovely shot, Bill - with being in Sweden, I'm missing the best of the spring! It's not as far advanced here, and still pretty chill.
