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 the…… Continue reading Shiny
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 the…… Continue reading Honey at both ends of the day
I managed to get out with the camera very briefly yesterday between the rain showers. There wasn’t much to see in my quick potter round the garden but I did spot the new Honeysuckle leaves growing. On a closer viewing I saw this droplet resting there. It looks like it’s being carried carefully – a…… Continue reading Precious Droplet
At first glance, you might think ‘sunny’ would be a better word for this photo than ‘shadowed’. But if you look more closely, the shadows are there and they’re more important than you might think. Without the shadows of each twining stem over the other, you wouldn’t see the contrast of dark and light. The…… Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Shadowed
Ok so I may be slightly obsessed with droplets, but what can you do when the weather is wet? Now that the days are shorter it’s dark when I get home from work, so even on a good day there’s no chance of photos on a work day. Maybe the weather will be nice at…… Continue reading Drop of Honey
The Honeysuckle growing up on the trellis outside my living room window is having a go at flowering, despite not managing a single flower for the rest of the summer! It got cut back rather vigorously last year along with the clematis that was trying to pull of my guttering! I thought it was dead.…… Continue reading Last Honeysuckle?
Yet another photo of droplets from the weekend. This is a stem of Honeysuckle which seems to think its time to grow already. Fresh new leaves all pretty with droplets, like spring … but its not really spring yet is it?
Hello I’m back! Not sure if I’m going to be posting as regularly now I’m out of the habit of it, but we’ll see. 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’t…… Continue reading Year old Honeysuckle
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 outer…… Continue reading Catkins and Other Springy Things
