***April is near - we need the diversion of the APRIL Photo contest***Idea for theme

In just a few days we'll start April / fool's day is around the corner. I went this morning to photograph a house a friend is rehabbing. The first photo shows the basement straight on, the second shows what I saw to my very left as I turned to leave.

I would like to propose as a theme for April

I'm not married to the idea, it just came to me when I looked at the photos and the thought of April fool's day came to mind.

Here I 'm making a post for folks who tell me they like the idea and would create or find a photo in their archives.
If not - tell me your own idea and maybe we get enough to run a communal poll.
It's early yet.

Expressing oceans of appreciation for mnhtnbb

When we falter and have problems, when things go awry and nobody picks up the slack yet she does, it makes me very grateful for her ability and attitude and willingness to jump in, take over, and show all of us again and again how it is done to run a contest.

Thank you so much mnhtnbb,
I genuinely don't know what we would do without your help, so many times. I wish it were not needed so many times.

While I wait for the hostess to decide if we can do two entries for the winter contest

help me decide which one to enter as my second one should it happen. It's been a long long time since we had an internal pre-entry poll.
They were fun, and both of these photos are supposed to make you laugh.

It never gets old - signs of spring in a vase on my kitchen table

The backlit early daffodils make me happy every year.
