As Anne once wrote in her letter to Gilbert in Anne of Windy Poplars: “It’s spring!” And I have taken some pictures in Heaton Park and here they are and I hope you like them:
Spring Fairies Live Here
What if we imagined that fairies lived in the dents of tree roots?
And that fallen blossom petals were their carpets?
And they played hide and seek under the (white) bluebells and daisies?
And they used the green leaves as slides?
Really, what if we all were a bit like Anne of Green Gables in the spring?
April In The Park
Spring is in the air, at last (for the most part), so here’s some pics I took in the park with my smartphone.
And More Daisies
It’s still flowers at Some Photoblog!
I saw these pink daisies (I don’t actually know if that’s what they’re called) in one particular place in Castlefield, a little lane by the canal. This is the first time I’ve gone through there so the first time I’ve seen them.
I’m adding these big ones too, they also grow in Castlefield.
I cannot stop photographing flowers.
Daisies May 2021
Daisies are always daisies.
The last one looks like they gathered to watch someone give a talk.
Taken–you guessed it–with my smartphone, on–you guessed it–a walk in my park. I could say this post concludes a trilogy titled Spring 2021, but I’ve only just made it up.
Daisies May 2020
I feel like, throughout the whole existence of this blog, I have never given daisies the justice they deserve. So while going out for walks during this pandemic, I’ve been keeping my eye out for daisies. My local park had just what I was after.
Pictures taken with my smartphone, again, as my camera has been untouched for majority of this spring, because what’s the point…
The five of them were so together, away from the rest of those on the above three photos, that it made me think: okay, so they’re either five members of a girlband or the five Bennett sisters from Pride and Prejudice.
These daisies are a part of a bouquet I got from supermarket.
I like the minimalism of the picture.
A June Evening
The title of today’s post comes from–guess who–my favourite heroine, Anne Shirley aka Anne of Green Gables. A June Evening is a name of a chapter of the third book, Anne of the Island. Here I give you some of my photographs taken this month:
Anne: “I wonder what it would be like to live in a world where it was always June.”
Marilla: “You’d get tired of it.”
Anne: “I daresay, but just now I feel that it would take me a long time to get tired of it, if it were all as charming as today. Everything loves June.”
I think it’s great that Anne has appreciation for living in a world where there are Junes as well as Octobers!
And how about you, dear reader? Do you also love the month of June and wish it went on for longer? Or do you prefer the cooler months? Share your thoughts in the comments!
The Flora Rainbow
I’ve been enjoying photographing flowers and plants close up and it was somewhere at this point it occurred to me to set up a post showing them in a colour spectrum. Or at least 85% of it–I couldn’t find anything in indigo, sorry!
Tops of ferns look like little snails, hmmm…
There’s diversity in flora, that is clear and they don’t seem to be fighting each other. Humans could learn a lot from them.
Little Daisy-like Flowers
