On 2 May 2009 Oregon Curly uploaded a pic of his back yard with the following description: Going to try and get a shot off our porch every Saturday morning for an entire year. Same POV, focus etc. Want to record the changing seasons and the area in general.

Would be great if EVERYONE here would do the same - we can share our 'morning views' and see how everyone is fairing.

Some of us JPGers have been doing just that ever since. This is my first photo taken 3 May 2009. As you can see the flowering plum wasn't as interested in flowering as the damn wild violets (that have taken over the yard) were.

Canon EOS 350D camera with a Sigma AF 18-200mm DC OS Zoom lens
