But it is summer, so I share with you some summer colour from around my garden -
and some native flowers that I have growing in my garden - the reds, greens and yellows have a Christmassy feel
and our summer crops - the last lemons are clinging to the tree, the grapes are starting to fill out, the tomatoes are ripening, and the apricots whilst still green are starting to colour and will be ready to pick for Christmas - then it will be time again to preserve some and make apricot jam. Have you tried fresh apricot slices in a tossed summer salad - delicious!
One of my lavender bushes is covered in flowers. The bees are loving it.
I was standing in the kitchen late one afternoon a week or so ago, looking out the window while I was cooking dinner, and when I saw this magic light, I turned off the stove, and ran outside to photograph it. Natural late afternoon light, back lit from setting sun.
sometimes a dancer....always a photographer.....!...
