My Sunday Photo – 1st May 2016


Each morning since early February I have been taking a photo of the trees at the end of my garden. I wanted to record them change from their bare Wintery branches to the lush green of Spring. I’ve not had much joy from them yet, they are still pretty bare. This photo about was taken a month ago on 30th March. It’s one of my favourites because it’s the first time I caught a bird in the trees.

The trees have not changed much over time, although I’m seeing some blossom now, but what has changed on an almost daily basis is the sky.

This next one was taken on April 2nd.


 Look how moody that sky is.

The photos are all taken around the same time in the morning with no filters or editing. This one is almost black and white. I can still make out the blossom and I know there are many more birds there now, they wake me in the morning.

Here’s yesterday’s snap, just to cheer things up.


You can see the blossom now and there are a couple of birds in flight although very difficult to spot. (Can you see them?) I think spring is on the way, but I’m getting impatient.

We also have a couple of owls in the trees, you can hear them hooting to each other. In the warmer weather we get bats coming into our garden in the evening. They come right up to our patio doors, but won’t approach if we are outside. I’d love to get a photo of them, but they are so quick. Until we had our neighbourhood bats I hadn’t realised how cute they are.

You probably think I’m a bit nuts obsessing over the trees this way, can you tell I don’t get out much!

    Such a wonderful view, especially when the blue skies make an appearance!

    I love seeing the seasons change like this in one spot, I must do the same with our lake this year #MySundayPhoto

    Hi Anne, I love taking photos of trees, there is just something about them I like. I did mean to do the same thing with our walnut tree, but never did. Maybe next year! We get bats too, but they tend to keep their distance, although I've had some close encounters walking down the road in the evening. I can certainly see their cuteness.

    Such a cute project! The weather is really weird lately and so manyt hings going on in a short span of time. Can I confess that I am scared of it? #mysundayphoto

    Love the idea of taking the photos regularly to record the changes and so lovely to see the blossom appearing 🙂

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
