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.
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.
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.”
