A sad and happy day today… We went to the funeral of my wife’s eldest cousin who died a couple of weeks ago. Despite the sadness, there was much laughter as relatives and friends met up for the first time in years. This was a simple and moving tribute.
A break from the almost constant rain over the last week gave me an opportunity today to check out the greenhouse. And how it’s grown! So much so that the sunflowers, which I should have planted out a couple of weeks ago, have now reached the roof. I really do need to get out there and sort things out…
Potentilla and Ceanothus are two of my favourite bushes in the garden, so what better to show them at their best than a double exposure? There’s an app for everything!
This monkey is on Half Term holiday this week, and wanted to spend some time with Grandad. So we decided on a bike ride, and jolly good fun it was.
Ignoring the forecast of rain, we walked a section of the South West Coastal Path in Cornwall today. Such beautiful scenery, enhanced by a colourful display of spring flowers, including this Pink Thrift. A nice walk, good friends, and a good pub for lunch – what’s not to like?
It may be the end of the soccer season, but it’s also pretty much the end of the bluebell season around here. Yes, there are still quite a few around (overall it’s been one of the best bluebell seasons for years…) but the colour is fading fast. Probably my last day out photographing them this year…
Despite my best efforts, our lawn has a fair crop of dandelions already this year. Their seed heads only last for a day at most, so an opportunistic shot before the seeds are blown away.
