March Photo-a-day…review

March is over…it came in cold and furious and left on a slightly more gentle note…”In like a lion, out like a lamb!” The interesting weather made for some great photography opportunities. Grab a coffee, put your feet up and enjoy for just a few minutes.

The first group is following Fat Mum Slim. If you would like to join in the fun, head on over to Fat Mum Slim for your copy of the prompts… (descriptions below each photo)
