On the Brink of Summer

Or am I tempting fate? 
But it is June tomorrow and today the sun is shining and it's looking good.
I don't have anything of significance to share today except that I have been meaning to post these pictures of my garden for a while. They were taken in the early evening when the sun illuminates the point of my triangular garden. I've been leaping up from the supper table to grab my camera and catch the light.










In the mornings the sun has a different view of the garden and the hedgerows beyond. It was making the most of the may (hawthorn) blossom the other day. This was my view from beneath the branches of the Quince Tree


And here is my flower of the moment, the deliciously scented rose frühlingsmorgen.

And here is May's sampler.


See you in June.

    1. It's a Canon EOS 550D. I think most of these photos were taken using a long lens except the rose which was taken with a macro lens. More details about camera and lenses on my FAQ page.

  9. It was a lovely day today wasn't it. Daughter, grand-daughter and I had a late lunch at David's Nurseries in Martin Hussingtree. It was very peaceful. Hope we get some fine days as I've loads to do outside.

  10. Since becoming a blogger I have taken up that mad activity of grabbing the camera and rushing out to the garden to snap away when ever the sun shines. Or even when it doesn't - the other day, after a downpour, the herbs seemed to have shot up and almost seemed to be bristling with health after their huge drink. Your flowers are looking beautiful, and I wish I could get close-ups like that!

  21. The weather has been teasing us but I think summer may finally be on the way. You photos are, as ever, delightful.

    Now if it would just warm up a little bit that would be lovely. x

  22. I hope this lovely weather continues, Sue. I really do!! The May sampler looks lovely with all these flowers.... It is a positive Sampler, isn't it? I remember a very gloomy May...
