We were just planting a bunch of Malva plants, they grow well at altitude and have loads of purple flowers which the bees love.
Bees are so hard to photograph, I just happened to snap this one and was lucky indeed.
There has been loads of rain recently after months of dry. Suddenly this flower popped up from the nothingness. ( is that even a word) almost over night. It is rather a beautiful flower and it doesn’t last long and if I can get it right there will be some more photos of it over the coming days.
So, finding different photos from different angles is beginning to become a challenge at only half way through the month. But these rose buds should provide some interesting shots over the coming days.
Carnation, love them, such lovely colours, this has been budding for a few days now and there are a few other buds around it, so I am sure there will be more photos of this carnation in the future.
We have dandelions all over our garden, so it goes without saying that one of these days I would tale a photo of one, but to get a different angle is the key. We have a huge hole in our garden, that one day will be a pond, so I went in and took this photo from a low angle, without having to lie down on the ground. The sky was grey and boring, but I like the slight high key look.
We have some carnations in the garden, they are one of the few flowers that really thrive here, with buds all year round, so expect a series of these.
