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.

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.🌱

Bluebells New Edit

What a glorious day!
As promised here’s a few photographs from my trip to one Bluebell patch in some woodland very near to where I live. It is so lovely to see a carpet of blue on a late afternoon dancing in the sunshine.

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.

Spring Snow II

Well, this has been a cold week; jumpers and hats back out of the cupboard!
Today we’ve had more snow – just light flurries on and off today. The poor Magnolia tress was not looking too happy today! There is a short video of the snow on the Magnolia; watch out for the cheeky Blackbird hopping about!
