Pennies

positivity purchased in shining pennies scattered upon dawn-kissed green, innocent joy freely paid from a poor-man’s purse These flowers, like most of wildflowers, have a fascinatingly wide variety of names. Scientifically they’re called Leucanthemum vulgare, but they’re more commonly known as the ox-eye (or oxeye) daisy or the dog daisy. Other names include: field daisy, … More Pennies

Awaken

awaken * to inquisitive sunbeams that nudge and question and seek, illuminating each shadowy fear that hides within the morass of insecurity coccooning deep Winter’s sleep * awaken * to gaze with innocent curiosity upon the world’s bright new beginnings, eager to embrace each glimmering opportunity held in pristine readiness within bejewelling dew * awaken … More Awaken

Every Wednesday all across the internet bloggers post a photograph with no words to explain it. Here is mine.

Cee’s Black and White Challenge: What is Beautiful to You

This post is in response to Cee’s Black and White Challenge. This week’s theme is, What is Beautiful to You, so I thought I’d post a few galleries. I hope you all like them. I find beauty in roses, blooming gloriously throughout the summer months, their velvet soft petals curling in intricate layers. I find beauty … More Cee’s Black and White Challenge: What is Beautiful to You

After the Rain

One type of weather you can nearly always rely on in England is rain. This year has been particularly wet! It might be annoying, stopping me from getting outside to take photographs, but it’s what makes the gardens so green and the growth so lush, so I suppose I shouldn’t complain. As I arrived home a … More After the Rain

It’s been a while since I’ve managed to put together a gallery of pictures showing the plants and flowers growing in my little corner of the world – summer weekends for a children’s entertainer are a little busy! I have, however, been taking pictures quite regularly so I thought it was about time to share them … More New Growth – July

New Growth – June

Unfortunately we currently have absolutely no internet in the village so I’m afraid I’m going to be absent from my blog for most of this week. I’m only able to post this one by visiting a local restaurant that has free wi-fi. Luckily I’d already prepared a gallery of pictures ready to post! We’ve been told … More New Growth – June

Roses

The roses in the garden are now fully in bloom so I thought I’d share a few pictures of them. I adore roses. Their blooming is always a sign that summer has arrived, even if the weather doesn’t necessarily agree. I’d just like to apologise to anyone whose blog I haven’t managed to visit recently or whose comment … More Roses

From Winter

   From Winter Retreat, huddle down, as darkness creeps ever further over the barren landscape. Icicle fingers bind tight; hearts and minds joyless, fearful in Winter’s captivity. A flickering glimmer of light amidst shadow. Watch night retreat. A shaft of pale daylight dances across the pristine crystals clothing nature’s naked beauty. A jubilant laugh; a … More From Winter

Treasure

Bee Awaken in shades of amber to a life of fertile creativity, performing the timeless dance for the queen, Mother of the hive. Defiant of earthbound laws, find harmony and take flight on diaphanous wings, following the entrancing essence in search of precious gold. I adore bees – I’ve always said that someday I will … More Treasure
