TREE FOLLOWING - April

If you see this message, it will be because my laptop is not yet back from the menders. It won't be an exciting page because loading pictures while it's not working properly is a bit of a palaver. How I look forward to its return! when (hopefully) I'll not have to press the mouse pad in different places over and over in the hope that eventually one of the taps will make it work. . . . Oh! all that catching up - with just about everything!

But as long as the box comes up at the right time, you don't really need me. So here I am putting the box on a timer and waving my laptop into the blue for a while.

Tree Following Link Boxes are supplied by Mister Linky's Magical Widgets. The links are moved to a separate page once the box is closed.

March?

Hope you get your computer back in order soon.

Erica - thanks. Have managed to change march to April. Took twenty minutes of tapping on my little phone. Touch screen makes me realise how I have unexpectedly calloused fingers.(a mixture of washing up and earth I imagine) can't work out how to write in capitals but at least it says April now;

Sending get well wishes for the laptop...! Thanks so much for managing to host the theme anyway, Lucy :) I worried my tree would manage to bloom betwixt and between monthly posts, but no, it's still in full bloom - hurray!

Thanks for hosting Lucy - hope your laptop is sorted soon. Wonderful when they are, frustrating when they are not ;)

That is frustrating when technology isn't working...

Things have burst into life so quickly in the last month, suddenly there are butterflies more bees, blossom, frog spawn and first leaves. It really cheers us all up to see life springing back into the dark garden.

And we are off!!!!

Helen Gazeley said...

I've been slow getting off the starting block too. Thought I'd stick with the same tree as I want to follow through on its development. Hope your computer gets better soon.

Thanks for hosting Lucy, and I hope your laptop is sorted soon!

Hope your laptop is back soon!
I look forward to exploring some of the other followers' trees. But I think I will start from the bottom of the list this time, as I usually don't quite manage to get through all of them when I start at the top!
All the best to everyone and thanks again to Lucy for running this theme :)

Hope you will get over the computer problems soon; it can be so frustrating! I haven't visited my redbud (yet) but I am enjoying everyone else's trees :)

Anna said...

Thanks for persisting Lucy in face of adversity and I hope that the computer woes are soon a thing of the past.

There is shades of pink on the Acer I am following.
I have posted the answer to March guess the tree bark and added a new one for April.
It is very frustrating when the technology goes wrong, we all rely on it so much today. Thanks for persisting Lucy.

Barely sneaking in under the wire this month... but I did want to take some photos without snow! I hope your laptop is topping as it should. I'll never forget how awful it was when my hard drive crashed, with thousands of photos gone forever.

Hope the laptop sorted soon. Looking forward to reading about everyone's trees this month now that we've got a bit of warm weather and things are starting to grow!

I am late but I am in!
Hope, your laptop is working and you can catch up. Thanks for hosting regardless of your troubles!

Hi! This looks like so much fun - my little girl would like to participate with her favourite tree. How does it work? Should we link back to you every month?
