On the Hook, 16/5/20

This week’s Pandemonium parts had bead stitch again, which I love πŸ™‚ So pretty! For some reason I had a mind blank at the end of part 13 and my beads were not quite right, but I fixed them up when I added part 14. Not sure why, but I was putting my hook intoContinue reading “On the Hook, 16/5/20”

On the Hook, 2/5/20

Next part (11) is due tomorrow. Here it is at the end of part 9 onContinue reading “On the Hook, 2/5/20”

Snowdrops

On the way we stopped by the church wall to see if there were any snowdrops. There were some there as well as a few further down the road. So I hadContinue reading “Snowdrops”

The light and the leaves together were beautiful. I’m not sure my photos entirely capture the feeling, butContinue reading “Golden Light”

Here be Dragons

Lately I’ve taking a lot of photos of horses and ponies and hadn’t had much opportunity for other smaller creatures. However this weekend I’ve been pottering round the garden taking photos, then this morning felt I hadContinue reading “Here be Dragons”

Hummingbird Hawk-moth

Today I saw my first Hummingbird Hawk-moth! I managed to get a few half-decent photos, but even without perfectly focused images, it was pretty cool! They’re quite big and as the name suggests they flap their wings quickly and hover, poking out their long proboscis to suck up nectar from the flowers. This one flewContinue reading “Hummingbird Hawk-moth”

A Proliferation of Blooms

Spring is really making its mark now, and yesterday was all that is wonderful about spring. Warmth, sunshine, and new life… Wherever you look there are spring flowers bursting forth. Dandelions, often dismissed as weeds, provide a source of nectar for Bees and Butterflies (and many other insects) and bring a splash of lovely brightContinue reading “A Proliferation of Blooms”

Birthday Butterflies

It made me very happy a couple of days back on my birthday, to find the weather was fine and there were lots of butterflies in the garden πŸ™‚ Finding butterflies to photograph on my birthday gave me immense satisfaction πŸ™‚ Inspired by the Weekly Photo Challenge: Satisfaction.
