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.”

J.R.R. Tolkien

Bank Holiday Weekend

Hope you are all having a great Bank Holiday (UK) weekend? I’m having a lovely one: the weather could be a bit sunnier but at least it’s dry.

I’ve spent most of the weekend in the garden and my garden project is nearly complete, I’ll put a before and after up later on.

May 1st and Breezy Knees Gardens in Warthill are open again for the season. Lots of pretty blossom on the trees and lots of flowers in bloom. I can’t wait to see how the gardens change throughout the year. A quick video of part of my visit. Let me know if you want to see more like this.

A big THANK YOU to all who have bought me a coffee (donated) to keep my page up and running, it is much appreciated. If you want to make a one of ‘coffee’ please see the link at the bottom of the page.

Red Leaves, Yellow Leaves


Day 6 post-surgery and the pain in my shoulder is a dull ache rather than not stop pain. It has been a most lovely Autumnal day so I decided to go for a short walk to collect some leaves to ease the boredom and to stop looking at my messy garden (thanks to the wind and the rain).

I collected some of the most gorgeous red & yellow leaves, which inspired me to take a few quick edits on my camera phone as it’s light & more portable (i.e. I don’t have to carry it on my shoulder).

Last day of September


Well that month seemed to fly by didn’t it? The past few days have been so cold and wet, I’m thinking about digging out my boots and wooly hats out again!

The trees have started turned golden brown and Conkers have been lining the paths for quite a while now. A few pictures from September as I can’t take any new images due to an opp on my arm, but I will be back mended in a few weeks (hopefully).
