Blue Monday: Simply Beautiful
A bit of horticultural minimalism for Blue Monday and this week’s Wex Mondays challenge. I shot this image of agapanthus and nerines at the RHS Wisley Flower Show last week. The clean lines and soft tones of pastel-blues within the planting, set against the small garden shed, really drew me into the display from the Hoyland Plant Centre. They are the holders of The National Plant Collection for agapanthus , tulbaghia and nerines. This small and understated display showed what excellent growers they are and drew many visitors eyes away from some of the more vibrant and complex show gardens. I’ve tried to capture the essence of their garden in my composition. In short, it was Simply Beautiful!
When the sun sets on London, the city is revealed in another light. The simple lines of structures like the Golden Jubilee Bridges, that run alongside the Hungerford rail bridge, belie the sophisticated engineering, both historic and modern, that are hidden from our eyes by the dark.
