    Dear Monica.
    The shoots on my daf’s are about 20cm tall just showing a little yellow bud. I am so looking forward to seeing them in bloom. To feel the warmth of the sun on my face and the wriggling of a very large Cod on the end of my line !!! 🙂

  2. Monica says:

    Hi Scent of my Heart, Thank you! I must catch up with your posts, too.

  3. Monica says:

    Thank you so much, Ian. You have such a diversity of animal life — would love to see it someday. The people sound pretty interesting, too.

  4. Monica says:

    Dear Androgoth, Thank you for your very special comments. I’m looking forward to catching up with your posts. Be very well yourself.

  5. Monica says:

    Thank you, Laz. You should visit, although Canada’s natural wonders are incomparable.

  6. Monica says:

    Dear Kenny, You have your finger on the political pulse of the area. I am impressed. As for the caldera, I look at it this way. If it blows, it will take care of global warming – at least for a while. Are your daffodils blooming yet? Very best — Monica

  7. Monica says:

    Yes, Richard, you have to come. Even though you have some fantastic places near you.

  8. Monica says:

    Hi Sandy, And I have always wanted to go to Maine! Your beautiful photographs give me some idea.

  9. Monica says:

    Dear Monica.
    Indeed, Yellowstone is a most exquisite example of outstanding Natural beauty. It has evolved on a super volcano, that could “if erupting” wipe out the whole of N/America and would bring the human race to the very point of extinction.
    Something similar to what happened to the Bison during the early history of the white settlers in America.
    The Yellowstone Bison are facing the same fate unless they can be stopped from migrating into Montana. The cattle barons there are slaughtering hundreds of bison a year. Because they fear their herds will be contaminated with Brucellosis !
    But let us not dwell upon the dark side of this natural wonder and see it for what it truly is. A most remarkable place with a quality that can take a persons breath away.

    Indeed a beloved friend.

    It is good to see animals living naturally. I have never been to Yellowstone, but maybe someday. Your photos are very good.

    So beloved, of you and countless others Monica…It must be a very, very special place.
    I’ve watched a few programmes on TV following the animals progress on their journeys throughout the seasons.. Wonderful, beautiful and makes the heart lift to see animals living wild as they were meant to.
    Your words pay a fitting tribute, my friend…xPenx
