Signs of rain

The joys of finally seeing signs of a little rain. The garden loved it. Hope there will be more soon.

I don’t shoot people…only flowers

I am often out in the garden in the morning with my camera to take advantage of the lovely light. This morning a local resident stopped to ask me whether I would take some portrait photos of his children. I told him I don’t shoot people..only flowers! Think I am going to make that into a t-shirt.

Breezy Morning in the Garden

It was a bit breezy in the garden this morning so not great conditions for floral photography outdoors but there were still some lovely blooms to snap.

The garden in the morning

I’ve had very little time for photography recently but I managed a quick look around the garden this morning. Nice to know there is prettiness even when there is little time to fully appreciate it.
