Bees on Opium Poppies

This year we managed to get some massive opium poppy flower heads in the garden. They are more feathers than petals and the bees are going mad for them! As always I’m out there trying to get the perfect shot, and I’m still waiting! Thought these ones were fun though!

Did You Ever Wish On A Dandelion?

Did you ever used to blow a dandelion to find out what the time was? Or make a wish? What was your childhood thing? I love that I never noticed the aphids in the first photo until I looked a bit closer on photoshop! Nature huh! Everywhere if you look close enough!

Purple Flower Honesty Macro Close Up

The very pretty flower from the plant Honesty, that has taken over my front garden. They are about two foot high now, I have a feeling they just might be classed as either triffids or weeds… The bees like them though so they stay.

Betty Bulb… Is it Spring yet?

You never know what’s going to happen in spring, it could be a daffodil from the bulb you plant, or it could be much much worse…

Working With Cacti for Stock Photography

I used to own a lot of cacti and succulents, but some bad house moves and a dodgy damp flat and my plants have died in rapid succession! However the few I have I love to take close ups of the spikes and leaves. I was fortunate enough to catch one of them flower. The flower only lasts about 48 hours so I was lucky to have the day off and could catch some close ups. (links to stock sites below)

And yes, I did get spiked, thanks for asking! 😀

Hand Painted Watercolour Wild Flowers

I’ve been working a lot more with watercolour, obviously not more working on keeping paint in the lines! I’ve been making some fun collections for Etsy (link below!)

Currently my new garden is full of pink flowers. I’m not sure if they are weeds or flowers to be honest, but the bees like them, and that’s what counts!
