It was not a difficult choice of words. The difficulty for me was in which photos to use and which not to use!
So, off we jolly well go.
Now, at this time of year there is a lot of yellow around. I had at least 10 photos I could have used even before I looked at my archives but here is my choice!
Top - yellowish bee collecting yellow pollen from a yellow wild poppy.
Middle - the laburnum tree from our old house.
Bottom - a field full of buttercups (and some grass I'm sure!).
2 Starts with T
Do you recall the Disaster photo from last month's photo hunt? Click here to see it. Well I've spent hours digging a Trench; well actually 3. They are not finished (been out of sorts with a cold/virus thing for weeks....).
Top - the water going where it thought it was best to go.
Bottom - one of my trenches, guiding the water where
I want it to go. It will be interesting to see this when
it has been raining for weeks and weeks....
Another word that had lots of possibilities. In the end I decided what I wanted and went to find it!
A wisteria over a lovely door. Found this in Gigglewick.
4 Starts with G
This was an easy one! G is for Greystones. We moved here at the end of March 2015; the previous occupants were not gardeners.... so I have spent many hours since then trying to create a garden that I like and can manage as I get older as my knees and hips don't want to play very much!
Top - a area of the bramble infested banking with some daffodils;
also the wooden bridge is rotten.....
Bottom - no brambles, more daffodils and lots of foxgloves,
hardy geraniums, geums etc etc. Yes the old bridge is
still there; I use it to hang on to as I step down into
the Zambezi (the stream that runs round the edge of the
garden). Beloved helped me move a big stone to
create a new bridge and I added steps to
improve the access. Still work to be done
but I know where I am going now!
Another one I had to hesitate over; so many choices, loads of photos but in the end a day out with a friend to Saltaire gave me what I wanted.
Left - a silver birch.
Right - silver Stachys lanata, full of bees so must get some for my garden.
At the last moment I changed my mind as I recalled (with delight) how you liked the ducklings from last month.
Standing at the bottom of my garden, looking down onto the beck I noticed this smallish
duckling. It wanted some tasty morsel just out of its reach but it stretched itself up
as much as it could and finally it was rewarded. What a joy to see.
Well, that's it for another month. Now I will and see Hawthorn's link page to see who else is joining in. I check this page several times over the following week to ensure I see everyone.
