This week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is about our favourite images from 2020. I’ve already posted about the photos/posts that were most popular among my readers, but now it’s my turn to look back at the year and think about my own personal favourites. Way back in January 2020, the light was just gorgeous on these…… Continue reading 2020 Favourites
This week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is ‘All wet’. There are many dandelion clocks (seed heads) in my garden. Some people don’t like dandelions and treat them as weeds, trying to wipe them out from their neat lawns. Not me. Apart from the fact that I like how they look, they are good food for bees…… Continue reading Damp Dandelion Clocks

Lately they have been mostly bedecked with raindrops. Please enjoy my Marsh Mallow flowers,…… Continue reading Marsh Mallow
Their flowers may not stand out with bright colours, but Alchemilla flowers are very pretty in an understated way. Even more so with the addition of gravity defying raindrops.
On Saturday the garden was covered in beautiful water droplets! So of course I spent some time crouching and taking photos from different angles of the bejewelled leaves and flowers 🙂 Droplets can look like they’re defying the laws of gravity, but it’s all about surface tension. So they’re good for science geeks as well…… Continue reading Droplets of Joy
Admittedly these may not be the obvious things that spring to mind for most people when thinking about the topic of ‘a good match’, but as I glanced through recent photos these leapt out at me. At this time of year, if there is sunshine after the rain, there’s a good chance of capturing some…… Continue reading Droplets on Catkins
It was a frosty morning at my parents’ house this morning so I went out in the garden to see what I could see. My favourite thing was the combination of frozen and melting droplets on the grass as the sun warmed everything up. So pretty 🙂
