just trying something

I need to have this picture so I can copy and paste it into my right hand column for a permanant link to Quantum Savvy. I had a wee picture and link before I updated my blog layout.....then all was lost......

still thriving

I love looking at tree leaves, the way the light shines through them, and the colours of the leaves, It 'does not do it' with a photograph....I think it must be that movement creates a play of light and colour and I cannot capture it with a still photograph.
the bees are out and busy, due to comlete memory blankness the names of plants are totally escaping me today so I may come back later to 'identify'
love the colours, still no memory!
more busy bees
and my much neglected garden is still managing to grow, peas and beans here, there are also courgettes, onions, carrots, beetroot and pumpkin. tomato plants in the greenhouse and think a pepper too. the greenhouse temperatures are between 6 and 35 C. too much variation and too hot!!
this is the poppy produced by the tall, much awaited plant. there are lots of flowers, they don't seem to last long but there are more waiting to open.
and the blue poppy throws out another bloom. I love it.

natures paint palette

I am so impressed with the 'pattern' of this hosta, swirling watercolour effect
and the blue poppy has survived and is flowering just now
more of natures watercolour in the leaf from the wild orchid
firmly labled!!
