I do like to get a bit more ‘arty’ with my flower photography and so these few images show some of my results with a bit of post production – I hope you like them.
That’s all for now. I will be posting some pics [ hopefully tomorrow] of Teasels that I photographed at the Pond recently …. see you then, Eileen
Would you believe it ? This poppy [Papaver Patty’s Plum] that was dying off almost in opening bud stage, has suddenly spread its petals wide open – the evidence of decay can be seen around the edges. But still, it is looking beautiful and the decay has a cetain ‘je ne sais quoi’ don’t you think?
I have two other poppies coming out now, one a bright red/orange [Papaver Allegro] and this one – a very pale pink [Papaver Carneum] Again – it is not fully open so I shall be watching its progress closely ….
Another of my favourite flowers is the Iris. I planted a gorgeous one last year called ‘Nel Jape’ but there’s no sign of it now – maybe the slugs got it … which is unfortunate because the label says ‘hardy and perennial, lasting for many years’ !! [I always hang on to the labels]
