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.



K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

After some confusion on Friday about who was posting the prompt for today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, I came up with; Leaf and bud, while K’lee finally arrived with Trip the night fantastic, so you had a choice of one, other or both of those to inspire you.

I went for my own option (mainly because I’d already taken the photos by the time K’lee posted) and captured the rapidly unfurling leaves and flowers in the short-lived sunshine of the weekend, along with a few other shots I couldn’t resist.

I’m sure K’lee will have something wonderful for you on the theme of fantastical nights, HERE.

However, it is now time to see which road you chose.


To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.

Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.

Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.
