We are at mid week and I have been enjoying some Spring weather with sunshine and warmer temperatures. I am able to start my seedlings in the greenhouse and grow microgreens. I am also starting to clean up my flower garden, and before you know it the time will arrive to plant the garden with vegetables. I continue collecting pictures on container gardening and hydroponics for a future post or two. So let us move onto some photos to help get us through the week.

The above photograph was taken by my daughter. I am not sure what variety it is.

Last year when we visited Manito Gardens in Spokane, Washington we had the opportunity to watch some young ducklings:


Here is another grouping of daffodils. I have them planted everywhere. This patch has been expanding every year. They bring so much cheerfulness in the early Spring:


Here is another Spring flower. This white Hyacinth is so delicate looking.

I tried get some photographs of my dogs. The only one that was coopertive was my chocolate Labrador, Sahara. When I said her name to get her to look at me I think she thought I had food for her. So here she is saying "hi".


I would like to remind everyone that an excellent way to support others is through @Steembasicincome (SBI). In the event you have not looked into the program I highly recommend it. Here is a link that can answer your questions about their program:


It is very easy to start with SBI program. You just need to have someone sponor you by sending in 1 steem for 1 unit. When they do this both parties receive 1 unit. These units lead to upvotes on your posts. In the even you are not posting much they will upvote comments. I highly recommend you check out the above link for more information.

I bring SBI up here because it is an excellent way to support social causes such as I have listed below. Remember for every unit purchased for anyone or organization you will receive an equal amount in your SBI account. So you are helping yourself in the processs.

I always upvote @steembasicincome. I see this morning that they highlighted me in their daily post. I mention this because in the discussion it gives you a little idea of the potential.


I would remind everyone that the issues in Venezuela are far from over. Here are a couple of links for programs in Venezuela that can still use our aid. I plan on adding them as partial beneficiaries to this post:


There are two other programs located in Bangladesh that I have tried to support as well, and both can always use assistance:


Check all their blogs for more information on the excellent work they have begun.

I am using a Canon EOS Rebel T5 for all of these photographs, except where noted.

Excellent photos Grandpa!

Sahara is a cutie! Nice flower shots too as always :) And thanks for promoting Steem Basic Income, it is a great project indeed, I have paid hundreds of SBI shares in various contests and giveaways that I have hosted, very cool initiative.

Great idea on using them for contests. I have accumulated a nice amount for purchasing units for quite a few users including the 4 programs I mentioned in my post, which gives me a healthy upvote for each of my posts. That motivated me to do more than 1 post per week if I can. Thank you!

This is very beautiful photography and really like . so lovely flowers.

Good job. It is really so beautiful.

What beautiful pictures and the dog I love. Thank you for bringing a nice color to your post @r2cornell

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

I have built my SBI to provide a very nice upvote. I see @aid.venezuela unit account is building there nicely. a lot of people have helped.

I always upvote @steembasicincome. I see this morning that they highlighted me in their daily post. I mention this because in the discussion it gives you a little idea of the potential.


FYI: I checked through their discord channel and you have 2 units. Not sure if that is new, but with you having 2 units you are sponsored in already and can give units to others.

Hi @r2cornell sir
You have done lots of work for me and I have no words to express gratitude to you. Thanks a million to you sir.
I am going to activate SBI subscription with your account.
I will also ensure to upvote all upcoming post by @steembasicincome

When you use their discord channel you will see at the bottom of what comes up in lighter print the length of time for the next update. Sometimes it takes awhile to have anything new show up. You can also check your unit amount through @steembasicincome...when you are there give them an upvote and it adds to bonus or rewards amount.

Hello sir @r2cornell, it looks like you really enjoy spring. in Indonesia during very hot weather here. I prefer the rainy season than in the spring. You also display some flowers.

This white Hyacinth flower looks very soft and beautiful. I like it very much. it seems very good if made as decoration. it seems like I have to find out more about this flower. I also saw many people using support with sbi. I have to check to find out more. this seems very helpful.

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

I hope you see the potential in SBI

Hello, @r2cornell
I really liked these photos.
The daffodils are beautiful.
Although toxic, I hope, that Sahara does not eat them. :-)))

She has a beautiful chocolat color.
Thank you for your work in support of Venezuela and Bangladesh.
God rewards him.
Happy life.

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

No Sahara has not tried eating daffodils.

Great shot sir @r2cornell. From flower to vegetables, it sound good and creative. Blessing

Spring came right, a lot of work in the garden, I did the same today, to plant beds that would plant radishes, this is the first vegetable we will have in my garden. Your flowers are beautiful. Thank you for sharing

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

Awesome photography I like your excellent flowers photography thank you sir for your great contribution

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

to plant by means of hydroponics does not require extensive land or land, now there are many people who love it

Posted using Partiko Android

Thank you very much for visiting.

Hydroponics does take less space. When I finish that post I will share a very basic technique I use. I have stayed away from the more complex methods of hydroponics, instead like to keep it simple, and keep cost down.

Greetings @ r2cornell

Thank you for sharing such beautiful images of nature.

The white hyacinth is a spectacle.

Thank you for supporting the charities, especially the support given to Venezuelans.

In Steemit, collaboration is part of the platform.

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

What a beautiful flower. I will really be hoping to see your garden grows into a big one soon then

Thank you very much. I am gradually gearing up. Many things cannot be planted outside until the end of May or Early June. I push some things ahead in pots but hold them so there is a better chance the weather will be nice to them.

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

I am still gardening indoors and will try and add updated photos from my greenhouse in this weekend's post.

Hey! Your pics with flowers are great!
I'm a Landscape photographer and if you're interested, you can follow me and check my feed:)

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

I took a look at some of your feed. Some great photographs.

Beautiful color of flowers . All pics are very nice .

Lovely flowers, dog is looking very dangerous .
Nice photography. Namaste

Thank you very much. Sahara's eyes make hr look more dangerous than she is. She loves people and is very gentle.

The flower is simply glorious. SBI program is also amazing as the blossom of flower. In this way we can help each other and gain mutual benefits. Thanks for sharing links of sbi

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

Glad you enjoyed the discussion on SBI.

@r2cornell, Definitely you hold the art of finding gem like flowers.

Sahara is so expressive and those eyes are reflecting as painted one. Ha ha

Stay blessed.

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

Flowers increase the beauty of our environment.So I love flower too much.And you can do a lot of flower photography.FB_IMG_1556182724126.jpg

Thank you very much. I appreciate it! Thank you forr sharing your flower photo.

Good afternoon sir. Purple and white flowers look really wonderful, you need to note the skill of the photographer. Macro photography is one of the most difficult works, it requires special care, but your daughter successfully coped with this task. Bright and beautiful photos. Your dog does not look evil, its eyes are cunning and kind. Dogs are truly a miracle of nature. I think that they always understand people, but they pretend that they do not understand, it is so convenient for them to live. Thank you for the good quality of the post. Health to you and your loved ones.

Thank you very much. I appreciate it! You are correct on dogs eyes. She is very intelligent and is the most stubborn dog I have had.

Wow ... How incredibly beautiful

Thank you very much. I appreciate it!

I really enjoy the beauty of your flowers, I am proud of this flower, and I want to learn how to plant this flower hydroponically

Thank you. I have on my list to replant a couple of units (hydroponics). I have seedlings ready to plant. I have never grown flowers hydroponically before. I am sure it is possible.

Hello r2cornell, how are you. Really beautiful photos, sir. Photos of beautiful flowers, a group of ducklings and a fierce dog. I really like pink flowers. Thank you, sir, you have shared it. Enjoy your day.

The "fierce" dog is the gentlest, and calmest of my dogs. She loves people, although loves food even more. Thank you for visiting and commenting

i also like Purple colour. overall nice photography. thanks for share.

Your pet looks very cute, maybe a little annoyed because you haven't fed him too.
Like photography @r2cornell

LOL...Sahara is always hungry. She injured her back and hips a few years ago and then we seriously started cutting back on what she gets fed. She is now down to a perfect weight and is able to jump into the back seat of my truck. I had been using a ramp. For snacks we give her carrots instead of dog biscuits. Now I will have to guard my carrot patch or she will be digging her own.

Hello. I know you are a smart person. Maybe you can help me, how to deal with: https: //steemit.com/@spaminator he votes against me, although I don’t have any spam and I’m not the only one. I just need your advice. I do not know what to do???

I would check on discord with steemcleaners and see if they are connected in someway.

I scanned a couple of your posts. When you post outside videos like from youtube, and you do not add your own narrative discussing the video, it can be considered spam. So to start correcting this issue start adding information about the youtube videos, and your thoughts on it. See if that will help fix your problem.

The same goes for photos from other sources ...even if you name the source and add no content of your own it can be considered spam.

In both cases it can be spam if it is a post or if it is comment on another's post.

Hope that helps

If anyone else has ideas please comment

Thanks for the advice. When I posted my photos and wrote my text, they put me on the black list. After I started sharing music with yutuba, they got me off the black list. Everything was okay But the flow began !!! My opinion. I think that they want to expel the programs of living people and take their steem.

They can be a pain. I have seen where they ignore for some (just posting photos without words) and then others they downvote or flag. I just recommend to those I know to add a short narrative to get past this.

The same thing will happen if just a photo is used as a comment. You need to use some of your own words in relation to the post.

hello @r2cornell sir, yellow flower and white flower photography touch my hart.pink flower also nice but dog photo look like very dangerous. second photo is some spacial.
