Every day is an adventure – 89/365

A  snowdrop adventure! These gorgeous delicate little snowdrops are flowering all over the garden at the moment.  They are so delicate and pretty but quite hard to capture. I took a few shots while walking around the garden and these are my favourites. It is amazing how differently you see the world when you actively look …

Every day is an adventure – 79/365

A garden adventure! For some reason this reminds me of an ice cream cone, albeit a very colourful one! I'm not sure what this flower is but I do know that it's a bulb - if you know its name, please let me know. I'm still going well with my 365 day photo challenge and …

Weekly photo challenge: Rewards (are always worth waiting for)

I have been a bit obsessed with my sunflower lately and have taken photos of it at every opportunity.  Lucky for you, my loyal readers, I haven't shown you every photo I've taken (it might seem like it I know). This morning upon checking its progress, I saw that it had completely opened. Hooray!! When …

Sunflower progress report

It all started with a seed, then a beautiful bud, and gradually, over a few weeks it has almost completely opened up.  The precision and artistry are so clever and amazing to observe.

Black and White Challenge #5

Make a wish and blow! I …
