Some of you asked me to post a few photo's I made at the photography course last week. I had a good look at them, but somehow I don't find them interesting enough to share with you. What I did instead, is cycle to my allotment garden and take some photo's there. Keeping in mind the things I learned at the course. Hope you can see the difference :-).
The garden looks beautiful! Although it's still bare, there is so much to see. The tiny white heads of the snowdrops lighten up a dark corner. There are crocuses everywhere. However best of all are the hellebores, under the old hazel tree. They look truly magnificent. I only have two varieties in the garden at the moment, since I lost my white hellebores, but the ones I have are very pretty! When I stand in the middle of the garden and look around me, I can see all sort of shoots begin to emerge: daffodils, tulips, bluebells and even the first aliums.
The early morning light in our south facing garden is enchanting, on this sunny winter day. I had to contain myself, not to prune the roses yet, or get rid of the thick layer of mulch, which I covered the Dahlia bulbs with. A colder period is still possible, and the risk of frost and ice, which can play havoc with my garden. I hope the weather will stay the way it is: mild for the time of year and sometimes even spring like. Can't wait to pull on my boots and start planting and seeding.
Have you been working in the garden lately?
I made the photo of the windmill, which is close to our garden, especially for Noelle. Noelle, here it is at last :-)! x
