Last year, I posted about the pear blossoms in Morrisville on March 18. Here it is March 16, and they have faithfully reappeared on schedule. I have a better camera this time around, as I recently purchased a Nikon D40 digital SLR. It's the kind of camera I've wanted for a long time, but hesitated due to the size. I finally took the plunge, and so far I'm loving it. Most of the time I use it on auto mode, but I'm slowly learning some of the manual features. It's fun to practice, and I can't wait to take it to London to really stretch her legs.
