Busy

I really wanted to try some insect photography at full macro (1:1) size, but I’m afraid this was the best I could manage today.

Looks delicious

And I’m sure it will taste that way too!

Phil gave me this a couple of weeks ago, and I’ve not opened it yet as I wanted to Blip it – not only ¬†does he produce some excellent food, but he goes to some trouble producing suitable labels!

The hot sunny weather has encouraged the tomatoes – all these were collected today. It’s going to be difficult to keep up with them.

Sorry, gazanias again!

Well, they are quite spectacular, and I haven’t been outside my property for 5 months, so I’m limited for photo opportunities, and I’m spending so much time trying to get my computer network sorted that I don’t have much time for anything else ..

Found outside the back door – a pigeon is the suspect.

Only a grey of course. Normally I discourage them, but at present I’m still working on my camera and the network, so I’m actually putting food out for them and the pigeons.

Scenic background?

I took this for possible use as a background for the model railway. Most of the day was very dull, but I managed to take this fairly early in the morning while there was some sunshine. Local surroundings (houses, trees and Castle Hill) limit the possibilities, and so this was more a test of using a photo this way, rather than this being suitable for use in this way.

I really grow these for the leaves, and usually the flowers are rather unspectacular, but this year the flowers are the best I have seen them. Usually the leaves prove very attractive to slugs and snails, but they are relatively intact at the the moment – perhaps this is why the flowers are better.
