Day #2523Title: Fuchsia Pink
Location: Abercorn Garden Centre, Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 18-135mm EF-S f3.5-5.6 IS STM
Notes: A lovely bloom found while looking arond a local garden centre. I’m sure I will have some for my revamped Japanese garden next year – but it’s too early to buy for the moment.

Day #2484Title: A Window In St. Andrew’s
Location: Willingale, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 40mm EF f/2.8 STM
Notes: A sunny window in St. Andrew’s Church – one of two which shares the same churchyard in the pretty village of Willingale. St. Andrew’s is no longer used for regular services, which are now held in St. Christopher’s next door.

Day #2479

Day #2479Title: Fuchsia Impression
Location: Wivenhoe, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 40mm EF f/2.8 STM
Notes: After my first Microfleur adventure a couple of days ago, I realised that I need more flowers to press. Today I visited Mum & Dad who always have lots of different blooms in their garden. They were happy for me to go round and harvest a few interesting specimens. I took the Microfleur with me as it’s best to process the flowers as soon after they are picked as possible, and I would not have time to do anything with them until tomorrow otherwise. These three Fuchsias had just come out of the press – I loved the way they happen to have arranged themselves on the internal cotton liner – already stained with previous flowers’ presence.

Day #2456

Day #2456Title: Peeping Through
Location: Hill House, Helensburgh
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: It’s years since I last visited Hill House, one of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s Art Noveau masterpiece. So I thought I would go back today as I had some spare time. Unfortunately, they do not allow photography inside the house, but it’s OK in the grounds. This is an iconic detail from one of the perimeter walls, with little flowers peeping through the gap. A great shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #74 – A Gap In The Fence.

Day #2392

Day #2392Title: Courgette Trio
Location: Ingatestone & Fryerning Horticultural Show
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: We dodged the rain today and I went with a friend to see the Ingatestone & Fryerning Horticultural Show and village Fête. As well as the flowers on show in the competitions, there were also classes for fruit and veg. This attractive trio of courgettes caught my eye in the display marquee – very nicely presented on a white plate.

Day #2390Title: Heather Sprig
Location: Galleywood Common, Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 18-55mm EF f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Notes: I was a bit late home from work today thanks to public transport delays, but I just had time to stop off at Galleywood Common before the light went completely. The heather is now blooming, providing an attractive purple-pink carpet in places.

Notes: There’s a lovely Jasmine plant growing around the arch above my back gate. I love smelling its scent whenever I go out.
