Five April Shots from my Cell Phone

Even though I've got my new camera operational, I'm using cell phone pictures today for Willy Nilly Friday and some other linkups.

1. These orange and yellow tulips are blooming in my front yard. 
Sharing with My Town Shoot OutOrange You Glad and Floral Friday.
2. These daffodils were blooming in front of the barn at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley.

3. Today is the 19th anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre, and many people demonstrated for safer schools. These young people were in front of the courthouse in Woodstock today with letters that spell out "Never Again."

4.  I saw this pretty sky the other day near Middletown .

5.  Yesterday we dined at the Edinburg Mill Restaurant for the first time. Frank had skipped lunch so we went around 5 PM, which is why the other tables aren't occupied yet.

The mill dates to 1848 but the restaurant just opened in January.


  1. Lovely shots. Can't believe it's been 10 years since Columbine and kids are still dying by guns.

  2. ...flowers are so hopeful and these young folks also give me hope. I hope that they continue the fight. Thanks Linda for stopping by, enjoy your weekend.

  3. Good to see what other's phone cameras can capture. I've become very lazy at toting the Nikon these days.

  4. Thanks for the beautiful flowers and the wide, spreading sky, but thanks especially for mentioning the response today's young people are having to the Columbine massacre, which still makes me shudder, and every massacre since then. We watched TV coverage of the protests and were thrilled with the sizes and numbers of the crowds. I'm far from young, but I hope to live long enough to see these younger, wiser heads prevail.

  5. The tulips and daffs are welcome to see.

  6. I have been hearing and reading about our youngsters making their voices heard. So proud of them! Such an important issue. Beautiful flowers Linda, beautiful view. Yhat looks like a real nice restaurant and a good shot of Frank. Always good to beat the crowds.

  7. Flowers always bring a smile ...

    All the best Jan

  8. Our flowers are really delayed this spring! An interesting variety of pics!

  9. Nice collection of images. My favorites are the tulips and those clouds in the sky.

  10. Our daffodils in the Binghamton area of upstate New York have suddenly sprung into bloom in the last three days, and I saw a flowering tree today. Instant spring (considering it was snowing last week). Love those orange tulips. Tulips, to me, are spring. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com
