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.
This beautiful spot is little known around here. It’s a small wooded hillside, and every spring has the most amazing display of bluebells and wild garlic. Today was a little bright for the best photos – an overcast sky works best for bringing out the subtle colour of bluebells.
We planted four of these trees when we moved in 11 years ago, and the blossom is spectacular every year. To be fair it only lasts a week or so, and makes an unholy mess when the blossom drops, but it’s well worth it for those few days…
