My ramblings, my photos, photography, image editing, etc.

Day 54 in our garden

I am surprised this is still going. New things are still showing themselves, not in the numbers of the early days when everything was new, but I guess Spring is helping. It might be coming to an end for 2 reasons:-

  • Nothing new shows itself for a few days, or
  • I decide it is time I left the garden.

I really want to get up onto Baildon Moor with my camera. Denso Marston Nature Reserve and the river are out for the time being until I am happier walking along the narrower paths even though it is within easy walking distance.

For Day 54 we have something new that has sort of been in before.

I have posted several pictures of Robins (Day 6 was the first time in this series) but this one is new, as in the Robin is new. It is a juvenile not yet displaying the red breast of an Adult.

Staying with birds; I have set my camera up a few times now to allow me to take photos of the Blue Tits using the nest box. One of the downsides of that is that my camera is not to hand to get photos of other things like the Large Red Damselfly that landed on a Sage leaf for a few seconds. The photo above shows one of the adults with an obligatory faecal sack in its beak.

I have posted photos of Roses before but this is the first flower on the Albertine Rose, it is high up and pointing up slightly so it is not the best way to display what is a nice Rose. It is hidden by leaves from an upstairs window, so that is the best I can do without getting the ladders out. Most of the stems on the Chive have flowers on now and are making a nice little display. The transplanted Geraniums have several flowers on now so they all seem to have survived the ordeal. The one I added to Day 50 now has an open flower next to it. You can see that they are different ages from the way the centre stamens and stigma are developed.
