Ever popular Poppies

These Poppies beckoned to me on a sunny morning walk. Their striking colours and delicate structures swaying in the wind are simply mesmerizing. You can see why they are ever popular!

Fables and Flora is moving to California

So after a lovely three years exploring the English countryside my husband’s new job means that we are changing countries again. Next stop California and we are leaving in November. Since I will also have to sell my pc it means that soon there will be a bit of a break of posts until I am reconnected. Thanks to all the Fables and Flora supporters for sharing in my adventures! While I can, here are some California themed flower pics.

Hooray I’m a Cover Artist for the Art Trail

As an amateur photographer who is still saving up to buy a DSLR and a macro lens I was totally thrilled that my blog icon image was chosen to grace the cover of the Uckfield Art Trail brochure and poster.

I was even more thrilled to receive a request to join in a ‘Taster Exhibition’ where the cover artists could display their work. ¬†With just a few days left to the exhibition on Friday I have made my final selection of prints.

I have included a sampling below. I am rather anxious about being in the midst of professional and more experienced photographers but also extremely excited and I am sure there will be lots to learn.

Wild Poppy Hunting

Since I already managed to get some photos of cultivated giant poppies I was happy to spot a cluster of wild poppies growing along the side the road near our Town.

It was a bit of climb through the grass to get to them and I discovered a rather large and deep hole nearby, either a fox or badger home I assume, but fortunately didn’t step into it.
