Shiny

Today is cold and frosty and I ventured out into the garden to see if I could get some photos. Firstly I was taking photos of frozen water droplets on the grass. Sadly squatting down to get photos of grass really hurts, so I couldn’t do it for long. As the sun got higher theContinue reading “Shiny”

Honey at both ends of the day

I was getting ready for work yesterday morning and noticed the Honeysuckle through the window, looking pretty with raindrops in the morning light. So I grabbed a shot which turned out surprisingly not bad considering it was taken through glass. This reminded me that I took a couple of photos of the Honeysuckle in theContinue reading “Honey at both ends of the day”

I am in a lot less pain than I was, but still suffering with the delightful aches and numbness of sciatica and taking more pills than I’m used to. I haven’tContinue reading “Year old Honeysuckle”

Catkins and Other Springy Things

We went for a walk in the woods down by the river this afternoon, and I was looking out for signs of spring. There were quite a lot of catkins dangling and some lovely green fresh honeysuckle leaves (I think). Also in this group of photos is the remains of a beechnut, just the outerContinue reading “Catkins and Other Springy Things”
