Hope you are all having a great weekend? I’m having a lovely one and the weather is absolutely gorgeous
I’m spending most of the weekend in the garden planting plenty bulbs for this Summer; Iris and Gladioli. The seeds in the greenhouse are growing nicely and with the gorgeous weather set to continue I shall be putting them out in the garden soon.
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.
It is Sunday so it must be Memories time again and hope it reminds you of warmer days. I can hear the rain battering by window and the wind blowing outside. I have fed the birds and tied down the cover of my patio furniture.
Sunflowers reaching for the sun – can’t wait to start growing these again. I may start some of in the next few days once I’ve cleaning the greenhouse out!
Beningbrough Hall is always a favourite of mine partly because I have a National Trust yearly pass which allows be to visit many places.
The meadows at ‘golden hour’ was really special too. Golden buttercups bathed in the rays of the setting sun (plus it was also lovely and hot even at sunset.)
As you probably realise I love photographing bees. Where would we be without bees? As far as important species go, they are top of the list. They are critical pollinators: they pollinate 70 of the around 100 crop species that feed 90% of the world!
I also visited York where they had made it into a bee friendly city with tubes of flowers and flower displays all around.
As the nights are drawing in fast and the weather is getting colder & damper, my garden was in desperate need of a tidy up and leaves raking up. I love trees but I enjoy focusing on their beautiful leaves, with their textures and shapes, especially as their colours change into their Autumn foliage.
Sunday morning views – how beautiful is this, with York Minster in the background? Lunch and a catch-up with a friend, in a very busy York on Sunday. I was wishing that I had brought my big camera into the city, never mind. Hopefully there will be a few more glorious days like this next weekend.
