Focus not quite right for these crocuses.
But the Hellebores have come out really well. I may be forced to read the camera manual.
Spring is Sprung
The grass is Riz
I wonder how the catalogue is?
A good time to check on them. - the one below is still in the ground. It would have been a great photo for Valentines Day - those crossed leaves make a perfect heart and I didn't arrange them - they just happened. I shall bring this one out of the flower bed this week and gouge out some holes. With my gloves on, of course. Then it will be a good spray of disinfectant and in the garage to dry.
The one below has been drying off for a while but is still a little damp to decorate. I shall place it in a window in the sun. It has lots of holes in it but they don't show very well. All the text has gone, which is a bit annoying but leaves me free to embellish all over. I shall show this soon, possibly with a video, so watch this space.
The final one, below, has been manipulated more than the others as I wanted it to be three dimensional. It needs more distressing but has been out for ages so I shall put the hose on it and attack with a wire brush. The folds are very firm so it is only the surface that needs attention. The catalogues will all be very different and I will be offering prizes (in stages) for the best, so keep in touch.
Went to London with Fiona and Sophie on Saturday. Was so looking forward to taking Sophie to the Natural History Museum - the bit where you go through the middle of the earth on an escalator. She didn't like it all, was quite scared and kept saying 'We don't have to go back that way, do we?' However the dinosaurs were a big hit and the treat of a taxi ride past Buckingham Palace restored the magic.
