The photographs on this blog are photos I have taken while taking part in an online workshop and others while I am out and about. Sometimes I go out looking for a particular image but capture something completly different, these are some of my favourite shots.
I love a photo challenge so am also taking part in a daily photo challenge over on Her space My space and adding the photos here on my Blog.

The Botanic Gardens

Yesterdays post had an Autumn feel to it and today we have Summer again. When we saw the Sun today we decided to go to the zoo, It turned out everyone else had the same idea because when we got there the queue was a mile long so we went to the Botanic Gardens instead and will go to the zoo another day. A lot of the flowers were dying off but there was still lots of colour and I really enjoyed the walk around while taking photo's. The squirrels are really friendly although I must admit I didn't like them coming too close LOL. I was delighted to find the butterfly (above) on a single flower and he stayed there long enough for me to snap away.As you will see if you keep scrolling down I captured Lot's of beautiful flowers and colour. The glass houses are beautiful too. I will have to go back when everything is in full bloom especially the sunflower maze.

The Sunflower Maize was dying off and only a few small sunflowers were left.

We even found a Christmas tree =0) >>> >>>>>>>>>>>

We couldn't leave the Botanic Gardens without visiting the rose Gardens.


While we were all waiting for Summer to arrive , in crept Autumn, It has been a while since I was in Herbert Pk so this evening we went to see the changes in the season and the first thing that caught my eye was the chestnut trees , so I had to go and hunt for chestnuts or conkers as they were better known, It was obvious others had the same idea from all the broken shells lying on the grass, but I managed to get a few. All the flowers are dying off and berries are starting to appear too. I couldn't believe it was beginning to get dark so early =0(

But I did manage to find a splash of colour.

Pretty in pink

Couldnt resist picking these in the garden today , they were lost in among all the other flowers.

I love the soft pink colours.


I loved these lollipops when I was a child and couldn't resist them when I saw them at the pick and mix counter yesterday . Now I have to eat them =0)
