SPRING IS IN THE AIR AND SOON NEW FLOWERS WILL FOLLOW!

작년
Greeting all. I trust that this weekend is treating you well.


Spring has arrived, although there is still snow down in the flats, but it is melting fast. I see a few early flower bulbs poking through the ground.

My wife and I are doing well. Sheba continues to mend. I have to keep a bandage on it until it heals completely. I see her putting her weight on it more. She got real upset a couple of days ago because from our back yard she could see I was out by the barn. She some how got through the gate and was running through the snow to get to me. She was sore that evening. I am hoping soon that I can take out in yard and to the barn with me so as to build up the pad. I would have to change the dressing as soon as we got back to the house.

I have a nice mix of photographs for the weekend's post. I am running low on flower photos so some may be similar to what I have posted before. I did find a flash card I had forgotten about and need to go through it. With luck I will have more flowers to use.

I am starting out with a nice bright red flower. Not sure of the name or where I took the photo.

I do not believe I have used the next photo, and I know how much roses are enjoyed:

IMG_4150-s.JPG

Here is another that is similar to one I have used in the past. I am not sure of the variety:

IMG_2143-s.jpg

Now that the snow is gone I have been able to get to my game cameras. I have two photos that were taken in the last couple of days. The first one is a 6 - 7 year old doe who always has her young late. She looks better than last year. Her young look to be in okay shape this Spring. Last year was harder on them. I am starting to feed them earlier this year to help build them back up. I have other recent photos for future posts.

This concludes the photos for this weeks posts, but I would like to touch on a few topics before I upload post.

I continue to spend many hours going through users who left comments that did not appear legitimate. I backtracked through their wallets (and posts) and found many suspicious things. I muted over 50 people who commented on my last post because they were more than likely part of multiple accounts designed to farm upvotes from me.

I have muted a total of at least 200 since I began this latest campaign. Steamcleaners has given me more names that I continue to investigate. Most are clearly just trying to get additional votes from me. I see @steemcleaners has done their thing on many of them. In the event some were missed I will be looking closely users who comment and will not hesitate to mute them. It is okay to have more than one account but do not try and comment with both names on a post. Some that have been muted may still show up, but I will not be able to see them.

Enough of that! Last weekend I talked about a couple of projects I have been involved with. Two of them I have supported for well over a year. The latest one I had in my post last week and that is a program designed to help feed children and elderly in Venezuela who are dealing with malnutrition. You should check out their blog or Fundition post and see the amount of food they were able to purchase. They are halfway to their goal for the 2nd week, so could use some help no matter the size. I will leave a link to their blog and one to their Fundition page:

https://steemit.com/@aid.venezuela & https://fundition.io/#!/@aid.venezuela/30wfgrql0

I spent a lot of time upvoting Venezuelans comments last week which prevented me from getting many of your posts. I had to set priorities. I am trying to increase my time of visiting your posts.

These next two links are of two programs I have supported for quite awhile and it has been exciting to watch them grow. One appears to have a fundition program going but not the other:

https://fundition.io/#!/@womenempowerment/8m0woru7b
https://steemit.com/@schoolforsdg4

I found another program that can use support. At first glance you may wonder why this one would be on the list, but if you read the entire plan I think you will understand. It covers too many aspects to cover in a few words. I love the fact that the program will be working with children and teaching them an art that this not seen in as many places in the world as it once was. It also teaches ecology (recycling of materials)...All in all I feel it is excellent program. It is located in Venezuela...Please take the time to read through their plans and help as you can:

https://fundition.io/#!/@arrozymangophoto/z31fxh41j

All four deserve assistance, no matter how small.

Now I will close this post and get it uploaded. Hope everyone has a great weekend! Spring has arrived and it should be sunny so I will be outdoors as much as I can getting things ready in flower garden and my greenhouse. Thank you for viewing and reading my post.

I am using a Canon EOS Rebel T5 for all of these photographs, except where noted.

NAMASTE

Thank you very much. It is a wonderful time of the year when Winter breaks and Spring starts to wake everything up.

Hi @r2cornell , roses are my favorite, especially white ones, when I saw this one, I could not stop looking at her, she is very pretty, obviously the others are also pretty ,but my favorite is this.

Blessings

Besides the beautiful flowers, I was attracted to deer. For me, seeing wild animals that live side by side with humans is really interesting.

·

Thank you very much. I hope to have ongoing wildlife photographs, especially deer.

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

Schön zu hören das es euch allen gut geht. Bei einem quirligen Tier dauert es lange bis eine Wunde verheilt.

Vielen Dank. Sheba wird langsam heilen, weil sie so aktiv ist. Sie läuft auf drei Beinen ziemlich gut, aber wenn sie wirklich hyper ist, benutzt sie den Fuß.

Nice photography sir, enjoy weekend .
Namaste

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

These are really beautiful pictures. I am waiting for spring, can't wait to capture beautiful flowers pictures of Ukraine. I am trying to buy a flower pot of Orchids but lets see. My one and only indoor plant is growing so fast and beautiful red flowers are blooming.. Those wildlife deers are fascinating.. Thank you for sharing part of your life..

·

Thank you very much. I appreciate it! I finally have my small greenhouse heated and moved my cucumber and tomato plants in. It was below zero last night and the heater held the temperature above 10 degrees. My cucumbers are designed for this kind of growing temperatures. Some Spring bulbs are coming through soil...soon fruits of spring will be here.

Great publication. I have got two accounts and i do not use them as stated above because i value your advice to me on this platform. Its good that you busy doing good and try to support others. This is an inspiration to me as I try to do in little ways.
Lovely flowers...i hope Sheba continues to heal.
Good to see the wild in this post. Looking forward to your next posts sir. Congrats on your new rep...haha

·

Thank you very much. I appreciate it! Yes I had not been paying attention to reputation score and it broke 67 and I did not see it right away.

Greetings mr.
Beautiful photos.
I'm sorry for the multiple scam accounts.
I will be investigating your projects.
Today I can enjoy a bit of internet.
Greetings to your wife.
Blessings.

Since cleaning up my account and muting many I have more time to respond to comments and start visiting followers blogs.

Wow. They all look beautiful. The beauty of nature in them

Happy Weekend sir @r2cornell
Great photography of flowers and animals. Really you are a good photographer. Thank you for giving us awesome and new photography related posts every week.

Hi @r2cornell, my good friend.

It fills me with great joy that your wife is already recovering and this much better.
That is very good, I pray for her and for you.

Great photos, now that spring is much closer will have a lot of material to take pictures of the large amount of flowers that will come out.

Every time you post photos of the serfs I see their publication with my two daughters, they are very impressed with the photos, they say they believe more in their photos, than they see in the book or in national geography. By the way, my little daughter asked me if you are Santa Claus. I relate the photo with the serfs.

I already notice that I made friendly contact with that serfs. It's good to see them I like them a lot.

I am very sorry that people abuse good faith, that is very bad. I refer to those who use several accounts for you to vote.

I have my main account and one that I only use to support the dynamic of help I do for my publication, of the toptres that only serves to vote for three people within my dynamic.

I am supporting the accounts that you suggest, among Venezuelans we should help each other. With one hand he washes the other hand and with both we wash our face ..

·

Santa Claus? Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Do not let the secret out! LOL

Glad your daughters enjoy. I found some photos that my daughter and I took last summer, so I have more material to continue until new flowers begin to bloom.

I have two accounts as well. It is a matter of how they are used. I may not see all comments in this post if some are muted and still comment. But it looks like things are under better control.

Hello, sir. Very pleased with your publication, there is an opportunity to once again see the nature of your places. You are today indicators of wildlife, cute animals. It's great. Flowers are beautiful as always, your work was not in vain. I want to wish your wife good health. A granddaughter of creative inspiration in art. I really like your articles. Thank you so much

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

My granddaughter situation got stretched out into may so she has yet to finish the drawing. I will check with her and see how she is doing. The initial sketch looked promising.

Thank you sir for responding to the comment. I am very pleased. I was born and raised in the city, my mother now lives in the countryside. When I come to her, I always have the opportunity to work physically. I can only imagine what your scope of work is, because you live close to nature. Thank you very much

Hello sir @r2cornell, nice to meet you again. and I was also happy to hear the news that Sheba continued to improve. wahhh today you show a lot of interesting images. from pictures of flowers and deer animals. honestly during my life I've never seen a deer. I really want to feel like I see a deer.

and I am amazed by the kindness you have done. You have done a lot of good. and you also give goodness to me. I am very grateful. may God always provide health for you. you are someone who is needed by many people.

·

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

Wao sir collection of your photos are always valuable and good. All flowers looks so beautiful and impressive. Natural beauty always attracts the peoples. 3rd picture of flower is my favourite. I really like pink flowers. Deers are very cute animal. I m so enjoying your photography. Thanks for sharing.@r2cornell.

·

Thank you very much. I appreciate it! I have some more deer pictures and will be going to check my game cameras a couple of times this week and take some corn and apples with me. The deer look to be in pretty good shape after a difficult winter, but I want to give them a boost as everything starts to green up for them

Glad to see wild life up close, observe beautiful deers directly from their habitat.
Beautiful photography @r2cornell

·

Thank you very much.

Hello sir @r2cornell, maybe you forget, if you don't mind, I want tell you if the first picture have posted by you about 7 months ago with a title "Please enter my photograpic world". btw, I think the name of first flower is Godetia and the last one is queen's gilliflower.

·

Thank you. I thought I might have. This one may have been an additional photo of same flower. I should be able to through the flash card I found by next week and find new photos. There should be flowers I have not used before. I try and code them so I know if I used them. Sometimes I go back and crop parts out to get a totally different look at the flower.

This summer I will have to take many more photographs.

You are welcome sir and It's okay sir, usually I do the rename of my photo before upload it, if it's renamed, it means was uploaded. This is to avoid me to do double upload. I pray for you get lots of photos next week, I wait for it sir.

Best time of the year, no question about it. I loved spring during the time I stayed in the States. I could not believe my eyes the first time I saw cherry trees full of flowers, not a single leaf. A marvellous spectacle to the eye.
I loved those pictures of the deers.
Great that you sort of domesticated them.
They scared me when I drove. So many accidents in the Athens, oh/west virginia area caused by deers. They are beautiful creatures but...
You have a great day

·

Thank you. I do not domesticate them, but want to keep them healthy. This particular doe always knows where I am if I am hiding in the woods. She lets me know how unhappy she is about me being too near. Last fall she was the only one who spotted me 15 feet up a tree on a tree stand. I saw many deer before December but she knew I was up there.

We have not had as many road kill this winter as in some. I just hope they do not go off looking for food and get near the highway.

·
·

Hahaha. That is amazing.
Let's hope they remain away from cars. It is a unique feeling to establish that kind of connection with wild animals.

very nice photography my dear friend @r2cornell

All photography are very good. I like a lot of rose flowers. Deer is very beautiful animals. Especially the deer's eyes are so beautiful @r2cornell

In our country, a rose creates thousands of ties of love.

Flower is a gift that can be gifted to all types of people and people of all ages at any time.
