Hi @EmilieT 

 

Bye Bye February 2019 ~ nice to have known you!hugging

 

February saw all our daffs out and so pretty too, quite early this year.

 

I shall be changing my mobile phone this year because Microsoft will

stop supporting the Lumia 640 end of this year.  

Taking a good look around at prices and possibly will wait nearer the time

to see what is available to suit me. Looking at Samsung in particular.

 

February heralds Spring is coming and I  was quite busy throughout preparing

for my hobby The Red Mason Bees.  Their new homes having been re-made for this year

as they had a bumper year 2018!  

 

Looking forward to a great March.

@Cleoriff  Out of all of that I only really knew about spring and colours coming back to plants and gardens around the city. I look forward to seeing some pictures of members' gardens, since I don't have one myself it'll be nice rose

 

I can only imagine how much you're looking forward to F1! Bouncy

Shoutout to @EmilieT 

 

An excellent summary of the Community threads and posts for February 2019

(not because I got a mention Bow )

 

Nicely and clearly shows some of the topics discussed, chatted about, and shared.

Hopefully members - new and who haven`t posted in a while - will see something of interest and join in.

Re: Community Recap: February 2019

The wait is almost over, at last @Cleoriff  Confused

 

And thanks for your kind words @Mi-Amigo, I'm glad to hear you think it's a pretty good overview! Was there any specific topic that stood out in February for you, that wasn't on the list? Or was it just a great month all-around wink

I don`t think there was anything missing from the list @EmilieT . As a new member, there was so much to see, find out about, share, and join in with - so all in all February was a good month for me slight smile

Re: Community Recap: February 2019

That's fair enough, @Mi-Amigo - there's always so much going on it's hard to put together a comprehensive overview, and what stands out for each member might be different than what stands out for another Confused

 

Roll on (the rest of) March! yahoo
