Sunday Sun Salutation

A bit of seed Yoga

I thought I would show you a little time lapse of my sunflower slowly bending towards the sun from last year. This took over an hour for them to slowly turn to face the sun condensed into 20 seconds!

Let me know if you would like to see more nature videos or any of the places that I visited and photograph.🌱

Catkins

The Common Hazel is easy to identify in winter because it bears male catkins which open to release pollen at any time between late December and late April.

The pollen is wind dispersed. The catkin turns yellow and if you flick the catkin with your finger it will release a yellow dust consisting of fine pollen grains. Each grain contains male DNA.

I spotted these on my way to the shops this morning – don’t they look pretty?

A bit of Daisy time-lapse

Thought I would show you another time lapse of Daisies going to ‘sleep’ after a long day just growing!


This took over an hour for them to slowly close their petals and ‘sleep’ and then condensed into 25 seconds of viewing time!

The second video is what happens when you let cats ‘help you.’

Goodnight Daisies

New Lightbox Work

I have been busy in the garden for a few days now and it looks like I haven’t done a thing (although my back & arms know different).

Flowers have been dead headed, the Ivy has been trimmed, hedges have been cut and lastly I have been collecting seeds for next years colourful borders. I have collected Nasturtiums, Alliums, Cosmos, Astrantia, Runner Beans and Honesty so far.

Alliums

I decided to dust off the lightbox as I haven’t used it for a few months and decided to take some images of the seeds of Honesty, one of my favourite plants. It has beautiful purple flowers in the Spring/Summer which then develop into delicate circular seed pods.
