May Day yellows

The 1st May 2017 - The last of the daffodils, the bulk of the tulips and the first of the poppies were all enjpying the Moffat sunshine


The 20th March and 12 days after sowing, the first of the seedlings are showing through. This one reminded me of a rearing snake and is the largest of the 10 that have pushed up. Its climbing tendrils like a forked tongue, are already visible.

Sweet Pea Nursery

It's the 12th March and I've just sown the seeds that I soaked overnight. I have two 4x6 seed trays containing 115 potentials planted 2 or 3 to a pot.

Gaffer's shadow

I liked the shapes, the light and the shadow made by the sunlight on the roll of gaffer tape on the carpet. Pointless and purely indulgent photography with a 50 yr old Zeiss Jena 135 lens.
