A little ice overhang that had developed on the boot of our car after sliding down the back hatch is melting in the sun. I only got a couple of photos before it fell off, so this is all you get, messed up depth of field and all 😉

Something quick and more straight forward today, before I continue with the summery task of preserving garden produce 🙂

Lupin   –   Reliable as ever,  with more  spectacular flower spikes are emerging.

Escallonia   –   Something a wee bitty different today. I have been quiet the last couple of days as other matters require my attention, though I have been trying to create an image of the blooms on this shrub which I have had in my mind for a while. Alas, the weather has been uncooperative with the grey sky in the early morning and the blazing sun right overhead later in the day, so my efforts have not been particularly fruitful.

We finally had the blue skies and sunshine early on this morning and I had another go, but not much time so I didn’t indulge in the dozens of experiments the way I usually do. (You have to learn somehow, and taking different approaches and comparing the results afterwards has been a slow going but very effective learning curve for me)

Looking through the images on the computer screen turned out disappointing. Until I started playing with the various settings, that is, and this appeared 🙂  It may not be to everyone’s liking and looks nothing like I had envisaged, but it strikes a chord with me as I currently find so little time to do the drawing and painting I would love to do…I should probably use it as inspiration….

Philadelphus   –   Mock Orange.  It is coming into bloom now, late, as everything else in the garden this year. Disappointingly, it wasn’t even worth waiting for as the blooms don’t have anywhere near as nice a scent as I have known it from other shrubs of that species. The question now is keep or replace….seeing that the scent is what I wanted it for. It isn’t exactly covered in bees, either….
