Dramatic new leaves in the exotic border on the top terrace at Powis. Pretty sure this is an ornamental banana – looking great in the evening light last Monday.
Back from a wonderful holiday touring round friends. Didn’t do much photography, but visited several gardens where May was doing its thing. Intrigued by this rhododendron flower going over in a magnificent dell at Hergest Croft Garden on the Welsh Border. Their azalea garden is also in full flood at the moment: well worth a visit.
White Clematis montana, looking poetical.
This is a mistake: a tulip on my balcony that I took without checking the camera settings. I like it. (Sorry this is going up two days late!)
Spindle tree fruit taken in late summer; one of a collection of four images I’m printing for the next Marches Independent Photography show at Theatre Severn in June.
Hieroglyphs on a birch tree, found on my photography walk along Morda Brook last Saturday.
Went with the sunshine to Powis yesterday. It was too bright for much photography, but I found some dying tulips in dappled shade, and had fun.
Watching spring come slowly: primrose on a hedgebank on Candy Lane.
Nearly forgot! This is one of my backlog of garden images, which I sorted over the Easter weekend. A fallen begonia flower.
Had a photography day up at Lake Vyrnwy last Sunday, and began by exploring where the land meets the water. It’s mysterious and treacherous – I’m always relieved to get out with all my gear intact.
