I went for a lunchtime walk today and spotted a lovely Broom bush. It turns out that the flowers, though beautiful, are pretty hard to photograph and most of my shots aren’t very good. But this shot of a tiny beetle on one of the flowers worked well. This has been tweaked a lot inContinue reading “Beetle Dreaming”
This is the first photo of a tulip I’ve taken this year. None have come up in my garden – I’m sure there were some somewhere. I spotted this one on one of our walks round the village. I like this shot, I think it’s quite striking with just the one tulip standing out againstContinue reading “Tulip”
Yesterday while on a walk we were looking out for insects, hoping to get a shot of a bee now that the weather was a little warmer. The only bees we saw flew off quickly so that didn’t really work out but Bruce spotted a fly on a daffodil and I was lucky enough toContinue reading “Daffodil Fly”
All the roses looked good with droplets. These are photos of the peachy rose and yellow rose with droplets. When I took shots of the yellow rose, some of the droplets came out really sparkly like they were little diamonds. Very pretty 🙂
Today we have the two other yellow roses. These are quite different shapes from the first one I posted yesterday – interesting how different they can be.
Today it’s the turn of the yellow rose, a soft pale yellow which is very gentle and calming. Another one of my favourites 🙂
A new flower to arrive this spring is the celandine which is now brightening up all the grassy banks and hedges. They’re like little yellow stars, or splashes of sunshine 🙂
The poor daffodils really suffered in the snow on Saturday. The ones in our garden were laid flat across the path by the weight of the snow, but thankfully seem to have recovered. These ones are from further up the village and they’re also recovering well 🙂
For today’s photos from my weekend walks, here is some gorse. As you can see by the number of photos I was drawn back to the gorse again and again! I love the look of droplets on gorse and the reflections I was getting, and the spikes are really cool too. Enjoy!
The daffodils in the garden have flowered at last – they seemed a bit behind some of the others around and about, but they got there in the end. Most of these shots were taken from lying on the path to get a nice close angle! Feels like spring is properly here, although the weatherContinue reading “Daffodils”
