If I ended 2011 with a farewell to that year's Bluebells,
it's only fair to start 2012 with a big HELLO, to this year's.

So the year has started off with the challenge of heavy cloud, and rain.
Even at ISO800, I was struggling.

Still, those clouds have silver linings,
and while I was visiting some Puffball fungi,
which I discovered the other day,
I was so pleased to see the little puffs of spores erupting,
like yellow smoke,
every time that a big raindrop scored a direct hit.
How wonderful is that?

You'll need to view in original...and sorry it's not the best of shots.
