Blue Tit all puffed up

Blue Monday: Bumper Batch Of Blue Tits

Spring has got all the birds in a flutter! I had so much fun watching the blue tits last week that I decided to process a bumper batch for this week’s Blue Monday. I hope you enjoy their antics as much as I did!

Grow Your Own Way

My Favourite Tree

Grow Your Own Way

Here’s my entry for today’s Fotospeed Challenge. It was taken yesterday afternoon on a glorious Spring day at RHS Wisley Gardens. This is my favourite tree in the gardens and it’s at it’s best right now. Blossom bursting from those wonderfully twisted limbs, a carpet of grape hyacinth and the border of fiery dogwood starting to sprout. It makes me happy!

Golden Crown

Guild Castle surrounded by daffodils

Golden Crown

Yesterday I joined a group of local photographers for a photoramble around Guildford. We picked the wrong day! It was absolutely tipping it down with rain and most of the group gave up before reaching the Castle Grounds. Well the daffodils were truly glorious, crowning the hill with gold. Shame about the sky at the time which was grey and featureless! For my Fotospeed Challenge image I decided that I would merge a beautiful spring-blue sky from Saturday into my photo of the castle. The resulting composite is the sight that I had been imagining enjoying and capturing on our day out! Despite the rain I loved going around the grounds, seeing the beautiful daffodils, primrose and blossoms. There was so much birdsong and a real feel of life springing up around me! I am looking forward to seeing the grounds carpeted with tulips soon 🙂
