I love taking photographs! Today I (finally!) finished my coursework so I actually had enough time to just wander around the garden and take photographs. Everywhere I go I see opportunities for pretty photographs. It really has changed how I look at the world around me. I seem to notice more details now.
Today's sky - a little cloudy and grey! It has been quite cool and drizzly but I am hoping for good weather for the Bank Holiday weekend as I want to get out and garden.
Even if it does decide to rain all weekend I will still have plenty to do. I have a cushion to cross stitch as a gift as well as quite a few cards to make and I want to spend some time on the Beautiful in God's Eyes book study.
When daisies pied, and violets blue,
And lady-smocks all silver-white,
And cuckoo-buds of yellow hue,
Do paint the meadows with delight.
I love this rose! This is one of the three new roses that were planted in the garden this year. We had an awful time with snow and frost so I was so delighted to see that the roses survived and have such beautiful blooms.
I like to experiment with angles and perspectives when I take photographs. In this one I was kneeling and it felt like I was a tiny person in a forest of flowers! I like the mix of colours in the photograph. There are granny's bonnets, fox gloves and a rose in this one. I think the fox gloves are so pretty with their pink hue and dappled insides. Love the English country garden style even though my garden is .... well .... a little wilder than that!
Again the merry month o' May
Has made our hills and valleys gay;
The birds rejoice in leafy bowers,
The bees hum round the breathing flowers.
