June silence

Sorry for the silence but what a hot and sunny week this has been; of course now it is the weekend it’s gone cooler again!

Have been very busy with work and the garden but I’ve got some stunning sunset shots.

This is a quick phone shot, I’ll update with more later on.

What a hot and sunny week this has been; of course now it is the weekend it’s gone cooler again! But, that didn’t stop me from visiting some lovely gardens today. My focus this time was on the beautiful peonies that have sprung up this week. My own have already been and gone so it was nice to see these still flowering and looking stunning.

June

Well, May was a busy month!
I was commissioned to photograph a very beautiful (and green) country garden at the end of the month in a very rural location. I have put a few images up (there are lots more to edit) hope you like them.

New additions

Hope you are having a good weekend so far?

I must post this from the other day… How beautiful is this double rainbow? It lasted for ages.

Also, I have a new addition, well 2 new additions to my garden.

This gorgeous dryopteris erythrosora the autumn fern or Japanese shield fern, and nepeta faassenii ‘walkers low’ (cat mint).

Apparently if you have cats (I do) you will be their best friend, they love these plants and can play with them for ages.

The last time I had this my previous cat killed it my laying on it and rolling round and round!

Getting Ready for June Showcase

Well this week looks like it’s going to be a lovely one (apart from today!) A few edits from the past 2 weeks of May, I have been super busy in the greenhouse and the garden. I’ve managed to take down a shed and to find lots of wood bees in a corner behind the shed. They are not doing any harm so I’m leaving them to carry on with their business!

In 2 weeks time I will be showcasing my work at No3 Heworth. This time I will be showcasing my cyanotype pictures and cards. Pop along if you you are in the vicinity during June. You can view my prints here or buy my cards here.

A Touch of Green

It has been a brilliant start to a new week; time is flying pat so fast I can’t believe it’s the 10th May already.
I was very motivated over the weekend and ended up getting my macro (close-up) lens out. These gorgeous plants look even more magical with early morning dew on. I took far too many images, so still wading through them!

“Magic waited for me in the morning dew of this brand new day.”

“One morning, very early, when the sun was up, I rose & found the shiny dew on every buttercup.”

Robert Louis Stevenson

“West, North, & South the children of Men spread and wandered, & their joy was the joy of the morning before the dew is dry, when every leaf is green.”
