Red Rose

Lovely day today. Lunch with friends in memory of my dear friend who passed away three years ago. Time passes so quickly.


500 posts. My sincere thanks to all of you who follow my blog. I feel like I’m getting to know you from following your blogs. I especially like the photos that have transported me to other places, while being in this seemingly interminable Lockdown.

This will be the 501st post. I hope that my posts aren’t getting stale. I have to say that I have enjoyed the experience. I’ve tried to post every day. Sometimes that has meant that I’m late into the night before I find something appropriate. Even though I have photographed so many birds and flowers, I have tried to find different aspects in my photography. My focus until now has been to take my photos very close to home, mostly around the farm. Now that Covid restrictions are easing, I might try to go further afield. Or maybe not.

Today I have two photos of lavender that grows in my garden. I have another lavender that grows prolifically. These two are smaller varieties I bought as small plants. Like most plants in my garden they’re the survivors. They have struggled through tough times. If I had to say which I liked best I couldn’t. The pale one is more fragile. The brighter one is more striking. My preference seems to depend on my mood.
