A pleasurable miscellany…

So I fairly regularly copy my photos from my phone to my computer, as I’m sure everyone does. A couple of days ago, I copied over the latest batch and took the time to go through ALL the photos I’ve transferred. Aside from constantly hitting CTRL+. I realised I have some really lovely photos!

I don’t really have any reason to share them, but I like them and instead of letting them hide away on my hard-drive, I thought you might like to see them too!

They’re not in any particular order, just one that I thought went nicely. I’m also the very laziest about photo-editing – unless it’s Instagram, I ain’t doing a thing with them. So these are just no-filter, raw shots.

Er, please also excuse the sheer bloody number of flowers and overuse of the words beautiful, wonderful and lovely.

Thrunton Woods on a winter evening! Love the structure of the bare trees and the delicate colour of the sky.

Cresswell Beach on a beautiful sunny evening. Pretty sure these big blocks were anti-tank structures from WWII. There're currently covered by the shifting sands!

A passion flower, filling me with passion for the beauty of nature. I think this gorgeous specimen was in one of the conservatories at Chatsworth.

I suspect you might be able to guess how many photos I indulged in at the Orchid Exhibition when we visited it at Kew Gardens, but I won't bombard you!

Try and tell me the light shining through this snakeshead fritillary isn't just bloomin' marvelous. Go on! I saw this one at Wallington Hall.

Speaking on Wallington Hall, here's the Edwardian conservatory, which is part of the frankly amazing walled garden.

Apparently European robins aren't as friendly as their British siblings. I'm glad we have such a trusting bunch! This one said hello at Port Meirion, Wales.
