The weekly photo challenge is looking at finding the extraordinary in the ordinary. I was thinking about the things we look beyond, and in nature, I’m often looking at the flowers, or the insects and don’t take much notice of the leaves. However at this time of year they’re especially interesting and worth a look,Continue reading “Ordinary Leaves”
The Beech tree in the garden is turning greener and greener as all the fresh green leaves emerge from the buds. Today has been far too windy but these were taken last weekend. I’m hoping the weather will improve so I will get a chance for more photos during this long weekend.
The weather continues very autumnally (is that a word!?). The trees are changing colour swiftly and it is very mixed weather with lots of dampness and not a lot of sun lately. I was pottering around the garden the other day and spotted this pair of leaves – I love how the little one looksContinue reading “Mist and fog patches, and occasional drizzle”
The weather at the moment has not been so nice – not all that good for photography. I have very little time and then when I do, the weather is as above. So I nipped out when the rain and drizzle had stopped for a minute and got a few shots. It’s now raining againContinue reading “Outbreaks of patchy rain or drizzle”
I was too late to catch much of the sunlight still hanging around in the garden this evening but I stepped outside to see what remained. After a damp few days it was nice to see some sunshine. This patch of very autumnal leaves caught my eye. The Beech hasn’t completely turned, as you canContinue reading “Autumn Leaves”
Autumn is definitely here – the Oak tree has been dropping lots of leaves. Each one looks like a map only an insect could follow 🙂
Well, I did get back out again for a walk on Sunday, but ran out of steam to write a post about it last night. So here I am in my lunch break on Monday … I decided to go a different route, all the way down to the main road, and back up throughContinue reading “Sunday Stroll (belated)”
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?
The weather has improved and the storms are now over. The clear up has got underway in town, and out here all is calm and there’s even been some sunshine! It has turned a lot colder, but that is the price we pay for calmer weather I guess. Today we went out for a walkContinue reading “Sunshine”
2014 has arrived! And with it, it has brought more rain and wind and general greyness. So no fresh start for the weather in this brand new year – just a continuation of the damp and stormy winter that we’ve had so far. I don’t fancy venturing out with my camera today, but I didContinue reading “Happy New Year”
