photo-20-09-2016-08-22-00 Today started off with the beauty of borlotti beans, which then moved on to greenhouse textures, conkers and crispy leaves on a bike ride…it’s always the things I don’t expect which inspire me so these are some photos of the thought process of today’s composition!photo-20-09-2016-14-16-17 photo-20-09-2016-14-16-50 photo-20-09-2016-09-49-01 photo-20-09-2016-10-00-11 photo-20-09-2016-09-57-56 photo-20-09-2016-10-00-59 photo-20-09-2016-10-03-31 photo-20-09-2016-09-58-14 photo-20-09-2016-10-02-23 photo-20-09-2016-10-02-50 photo-20-09-2016-10-08-16 photo-20-09-2016-10-12-57 photo-20-09-2016-10-09-24photo-20-09-2016-10-17-03 photo-20-09-2016-10-34-21 photo-20-09-2016-14-27-25 photo-20-09-2016-13-28-51 photo-20-09-2016-13-17-23 photo-20-09-2016-13-29-01 photo-20-09-2016-13-28-47 photo-20-09-2016-13-28-25See the version of this post with a moving still on Steller here

Thursday… with early Autumn

Photo 01-09-2016, 10 53 18I’ve been desperate for September to arrive so that I can talk about Autumn and the wonderful sense of change it brings: it’s smells, it’s colours, it’s light, it’s sounds, without feeling like I’m betraying Summer (…I’ve always felt a bit guilty that August is my least favourite month of the year! )

This morning I tried a new cycling route which was so beautiful; passing fields, flocks of little sparrows taking off from hedgerows, tractors in the distance, brown seed heads alongside greenery, a golden edge to the light and soft bird song…

The ride, with the season softly soaking up the countryside inspired me to create something at home…Photo 01-09-2016, 08 48 30 Photo 01-09-2016, 08 56 41 Photo 01-09-2016, 09 05 44 I had picked a couple of thistles and some of the brown seeds above ( I’m not sure what they are ), but I wanted to recreate the feeling with plants from my own garden…Photo 01-09-2016, 11 32 56 Photo 01-09-2016, 11 29 57 Photo 01-09-2016, 11 34 29 Photo 01-09-2016, 11 26 12 Photo 01-09-2016, 11 35 16 Photo 01-09-2016, 11 25 08 Photo 01-09-2016, 11 38 17 Photo 01-09-2016, 11 24 16 Photo 01-09-2016, 11 23 37 Photo 01-09-2016, 11 23 28 I got a bit distracted by tidying up my scruffy window boxes…Photo 01-09-2016, 11 22 28 Photo 01-09-2016, 11 23 19 Photo 01-09-2016, 11 52 46 Photo 01-09-2016, 11 52 34 I like them looking a bit wild, but they definitely needed a sort out, so I added succulents I’ve been growing in pots and some white cyclamen…Photo 01-09-2016, 11 55 32 Photo 01-09-2016, 12 10 51 Photo 01-09-2016, 12 49 06 Photo 01-09-2016, 12 01 22 Photo 01-09-2016, 12 49 58 …and so to the arrangementPhoto 01-09-2016, 10 55 54 ( I had also found 3 conkers on the side of the road from my ride when I was nearly home )Photo 01-09-2016, 10 55 17 Photo 01-09-2016, 10 55 24 Photo 01-09-2016, 10 55 47 Photo 01-09-2016, 10 55 05 Photo 01-09-2016, 10 54 54 Photo 01-09-2016, 10 54 15 Photo 01-09-2016, 10 47 34 Photo 01-09-2016, 10 54 04

Weekly Snaps…( with uploading hitch )

I tried so hard to get these ‘Weekly Snaps’ up here on Sunday evening at the same time as my Steller Story, but for some reason my blog is proving a bit of a nightmare re uploading images at the moment, so these images have taken about 2 days to upload after re loading and re loading as they just keep freezing mid import…maybe it’s because I’m away from home or something, but here they are now!
