Harbour / Shore / Sea

Ahh the sea, and all it’s shades and temperaments. And the colour is soo blue, you can’t even imagine it, especially if you come from the UK where the sea is steel grey, and moody. I love the changes, the details of the water, the people who live and work in and on it, the tourists who are warmed by the lovely weather, and softened by the salt. A few pics from Rhodes, Greece.

 

The White Garden & Other Flowers

A little trip to the Sissinghurst. As I live fairly close it’s possible to just ‘pop in’, and focus on a few sections┬árather than trying to see everything…

Today’s choices – some from the White Garden, which was looking lovely, but hard to take an effective encompassing shot; the lilacs with their oh-so-intoxicating smell; and the orchard blossom – which was very impressive. In fact it’s been a really good blossom year in general, I guess due to the low rain fall. Unfortunately, it’s been really cold so I’m not sure the pollinators have been out converting all these blooms into fruit. One of the trees was particularly enormous – several times my height.

On the tower, the clematis montana was rambling up the wall, and another massive climber – not sure what it was though – any takers?
