Today is a bank holiday, so no working, I can just use my computer for fun things 🙂 So I thought I’d do another blog post as there are more photos to be shared. A tiny solitary bee also visited that Osteospermum that I shared in yesterday’s post. If you compare these photos with yesterday’s…… Continue reading Teeny Tiny Bee, and more…
What a lovely theme for this week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge – delicate colours. There are some very bright and eye catching colours in nature, but some of the most beautiful flowers are delicate, soft, pastel colours. I am lucky enough to have several growing in the garden, most with no assistance from me -…… Continue reading Pretty in Pink
Back in February 2016 I bought myself an Orchid. I didn’t have a great track record of keeping plants alive at that point, but I decided I would enjoy the flowers and see if I could keep it going. Back then, I didn’t know that in the future I would still be enjoying this lovely…… Continue reading Future Flowers

In the photos…… Continue reading Abi’s Blanket

We have a pink theme going on in nature at the moment it seems. These are some pink flowers I spotted at the weekend between rain showers.
At the weekend I bought some flowers to photograph as there’s not so much outdoors at the moment. I like how the centre of this flower is nestled deep between its soft pink petals. And with a yellow flower behind it, there’s a lovely bright contrast with the background.
colours smear across the sky and we stop pulled from our everyday drawn to gaze upon purples and pinks a haze of gold where all becomes magical bathed in beauty
I thought I’d include a photo of my Orchid in its full glory. I’m lucky enough to have lots of flowers, and there are a couple of buds too. I am tempted to take out the sticks, to make it more photogenic, but I suspect the stems won’t be strong enough to stay up on…… Continue reading Full Glory
