Hi, just my two cents worth, I agree with "the season wherever you are." It's Spring here, not Autumn.

The world doesn't revolve around the Northern Hemisphere. Sorry to be a bit narky, but that attitude does seem to prevail a lot on the Internet.

Batman.
I will have the chance to achieve perfection, when and only when I can remember the future.

I'm in limbo as such when it comes to seasons  ;D  always green...usually.

Some spring photos would be good, feel free to post whatever season you are in. I think people tend to associate with what is happening around them at the time. So let's see some current photos from down under.  :clap:  :clap:

The poll for your favourite idea or photo should be up for voting on the 27th.

Depending on time zone that may vary a bit, so get your ideas and photos in.   :yippee:

Cheers, Val

Batman - I do a Fabric postcard exchange with people from around the world. We have various themes, but one of them was "Looking out your window th is time of year".  Lots of us did Fall postcards, but those that I got from Australia and New Zealand wer of lovely Spring flowers and landscapes.  And, I got one from Ireland where she said "it's always green here!".  So, yes, it's fun to think about you having Spring while I'm having Fall.

I haven't decided if I'm going to take on this one!  We are down to one car right now, and between shuttling my husband to and from work, and granddaughter to and from school and sports, and 2 hrs of Physical Therapy several times a week, it seems like that ALL I get done!  I'm putting about 100 miles/weekday on my car, and about 200/weekend!  I think any free time I have is spent at the gas station filling up my tank!

I don't know how you will be able to decide between these great photos!  I can hardly wait to see which one you pick!

Oh, dear, this is going to be even harder than the flower!:)) Never done a boat before, definetely not my strong point, but, hey, I do love a true challenge. It struck a cord when somebody said before about the 'North hemisfere supremacy' - he is soo right! Never thought of that, my Christmases were always white and Octobers red and yellow - which just proves it, how narrow minded we can be. Glad it was chosen a subject that doesn't involve the season :)

Just my 2 cents of course, but when it comes to the voting at the end of the month, is there an option to keep the voting results
hidden until the end?  That would make it more exciting!   :2funny:

Yes Faith, there is.

 I thought being able to see the poll after you placed your vote would be fun, then you could follow along and see how it was progressing.

Any preferences?
Cheers, Val

Preferences? Thinking about it - I would prefer a hidden poll.

I have another question. Are we supposed to take the reference photo or any type of fischerboat? I couldn't take part in the poll of November challenge because I  could not come in on the PB site. The screen said something about false error no such thing at this address. Wrote an email begging for help and Dennis kindly answered that Nolan is working on the problem.  :thankyou:

But up till now I can't see any posted photo yet. So do I wait until something popps up on me eventually or can I start with another fischerboat on a dreary day at the North Sea.
