The secret garden III

The secret garden I

Petals from a different angle

Oh my darling Clementine!

Sometimes I like to leave my crafts projects unfinished, weird, I know, but I like the hand stitches and details that indicate the item is not finished yet. Mom decided that that Clementine the red turtle needed a hat for the winter months; she looks happy and warm now.

I have not only been taking photographs lately,...

With a lot of help from Mom I have knitted this acid green jumper and I am so thrilled with the result that I have started knitting a second jumper. I actually bought the yarn months ago and I so wanted to have a new knitting project.
I hope to finally master the technique of casting off stitches and knitting sleeves!

Poised-The Petals Series

The Hydrangea at 2 pm

60 minutes before the rain

Yes, the weather can change dramatically very quickly in the North West of England, I was spared for once the heavy rain during my afternoon walk. The sky was utterly blue and within an hour dark clouds gathered and proved the weather forecast for the afternoon correct!

The Magenta Duo

From an ant's perspective

Walking out of the frame

I absolutely love taking photos of elderly couples; I took this photo in Bakewell, Derbyshire, on a sunny September day.
