Mothering Sunday and much more… such a glorious weekend

Mothering Sunday and much more… such a glorious weekend

Mothering weekend for me started on Saturday when my husband bought his mum and I some wonderful flowers … actually our favourite flower place is along the A13 in a layby… they have such beautiful flowers at very reasonable prices. And believe it or not, unlike other places, they don’t hike their prices because it is Mothering Sunday.

After visiting my in-laws on Saturday.. in the evening we decided to have a drive to Rochester Castle… for the sunset.  But unfortunately as the sky was cloud free.. the sunset was nothing to write home about. Anyway I did manage to capture this image of Rochester Castle.

WPC – It is easy being green.. when your a weeping willow tree

WPC – It is easy being green.. when your a weeping willow tree

I must remember that the Weekly Photo Challenge set by WordPress has moved from Friday to Wednesday.. anyway this week’s topic is about being Green. Green is everywhere, in landscape and floral photography.. so this week’s images were easy to find. Especially when it came to a weeping willow tree.

My first two images are flowers where the stems and leaves are green..

A photograph of a vibrant orange and purple flower in the Greenhouse at Hall Place in Bexley

Saturday was so lovely being able to walk without excruciating pain in my hips and being able to visit places and above all being able to hold my camera and take photographs.  The flowers in the greenhouse of Hall Place in Bexley are exquisite to photograph.  Hubby took the above photograph of this beautiful orange and purple flower.  I couldn’t believe how large the blooms were.

I’m back…. out and about with my camera

I’m back…. out and about with my camera

Bottle Brush Plant taken in the greenhouse of Hall Place in Bexley London.

Finally, life is getting back to some normality… and this weekend has been one of the best weekends in ages.  You see I am back out and about with my camera.  Still having to take things easy has meant my camera has sat in the bag and not seen the light of day for weeks.

This weekend has been filled with mixed emotions for me.  What with clearing my mum’s home and being able to get for the first time in ages with my camera. It has meant a lot of highs and lows over the last 48 hours. Continue reading →

Falling leaves but I’m still hanging on

Falling leaves but I’m still hanging on

As the winter of 2016 descended on us.. a bare leaf hanging on a branch

 

I am a leaf on this dear tree,
Hanging on, not wanting to be free,
Remembering days when I was just a bud,
Praying I don't fall in the mud.

WPC – Path – Wooden Bridge Over the Coe

WPC – Path – Wooden Bridge Over the Coe

Wooden Bridge

Wooden bridge that spans the River Coe at Glencoe in Scotland.

Whilst looking back over previous photo challenges that WordPress curates and I found one called Path. A path comes in many shapes and forms, like the image above. Which is of a wooden bridge.  A path is made by using different materials that enable a person to walk across an area with ease.  It could be concrete, decking, timber planks, paving slabs or even shingle.  A path will lead you from one place to another.

Another week and another photography challenge from the WordPress Team.  And the topic for this week’s challenge is called Wish.  And boy am I wishing for spring and summer to arrive early.  Last year for me was to put it bluntly horrendous.  What with not being able to go out and about.

The week gone by and one step closer

The week gone by and one step closer

Flower of the Week

A photograph of a purple flower taken at Great Comp Gardens with Powder Paint Effect

Slowly and surely I am getting more and more mobile.  And I am counting down the days until the 20th March when I see my consultant and I hope on that particular day he says I can remove these awful surgical stockings and that I am fit enough to drive.  Being copped up is doing my head in to be honest.  With just over one week to go before seeing him, I know these final few days are going to drag.

On the roadside - Loch Lomond

A photograph of Loch Lomond taken at Inveruglas in Scotland, processed with a Powder Paint Effect

Our holiday last year to Scotland was a little marred by my hip pain and lack of mobility.  I would have loved to walk the Highlands and go off the beaten track a little, just to photograph the amazing scenery.  But unfortunately that was not to be so most of the photos I took were in fact taken by the roadside. And for the WordPress photo challenge called The Road Taken, for me this was a perfect example of a photograph being taken on the road.

Allington Locks

A photograph of the River Medway taken at Allington Locks near Maidstone in Kent

It was so lovely to get out last Monday, even though I didn’t walk far.  However, I did send him off on an expedition down the locks at Allington, near Maidstone in Kent.  The landscape was barren and the trees were still bare but you could see the start of spring slowly appearing in the landscaped area.
