The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

This week’s theme on The Cosmic Photo Challenge was set with no particular subject in mind, but with an idea how to execute the brief; A splash of colour.

I did a lot of careful fingertip erasing to achieve these eye-catching images, a few of blooms in the garden and our very own Audrey Rose ensconced in the floofy comfort of her armchair IT suite.

Now it’s your turn to bring some colour into our lives. Go on, you know you want to…

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I asked you to use the theme of the rough with the smooth as your inspiration for this week’s edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge and I was inspired by two rather different examples of horticulture.

We were given some black lilies by our next door neighbours and I was looking forward to seeing them bloom dramatically amongst the ferns, but what we actually got was this mildly disturbing and very rough mutation…

…with buds growing out of buds, like the chest burster in Alien.

Which contrast very nicely with the smooth sleek forms of the day lilies, the star gazer lily and the perfect geometry of the dahlia which started blooming yesterday.

Now let’s see how you interpreted the prompt this week.

Come on in, the pictures are lovely!

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For this week’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge I gave you a simple brief; show us How does your garden grow?

Well at the moment, halfway through this year’s series of improvements and evolution, ours grows like this…

See what K’lee has cultivated for us HERE.

Now you can give us the tour around your very own oasis of horticultural harmony.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I had to dodge the rain for this week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, having unwisely set the theme of; A hint of Spring.

By the time I got round to taking any photos yesterday it had already been raining on and off all morning and the equally watery sunshine only made the briefest of appearances, before Storm Freya arrived to spoil everyone’s weekend for good.

K’lee springs into action HERE.

And now you can show us your seasonal offerings.

Summer blooms in the garden.

I thought I’d take the opportunity of a day off work to capture the sudden burst of colour in the garden, brought on by the arrival of this strange thing called “summer”, which we are experiencing in the UK due to some sort of meteorological anomaly, (if my wife is to be believed).

So PLEASE CLICK THIS LINK to see the pictures over on Photo Sans Frontiers, my photographic sister blog.

Thanks.

Rooms and pathways: An Autumn walk at RHS Rosemoor.

Images Of An Internet Nobody

Having a week off work in October and a sunny day at the same time, well that was too good an opportunity to pass up; so today Rhonda and I took advantage of a free entry offer at RHS Rosemoor and, of course, I took plenty of photos.

The large, sprawling gardens are cleverly laid out in a series of themed spaces, obscured from each other by the use of hedges, trees and hard landscaping, using the curves and perspective of connecting paths to draw your eye onward to the next horticultural treat.

There’s something for every gardening taste; formal rose gardens and the geometric precision of tightly clipped fir hedges; vibrant colours of the hot garden and a glorious mixture of textures in the foliage garden; the walled kitchen garden and fragrant delights of the herb garden and, my personal favourite, the lush and beautiful lake area, with its…
