I have been trying out my old camera as I have been inspired by my blogging friend at http://ramblingratz.wordpress.com

Ratz takes the most amazing photos of nature in the garden and the surrounding area. I’ve always used my camera phone to take my blog photos and they are okay but I wanted to take images with more clarity and to focus on more detail. So here goes!

Bluebells. I know they are not all English Bluebells but I still love them! These are growing near the Tree Peony and in the woodland/wildlife area.

I love the bright yellow of this Pom Pom Bush or Kerria Japonica. It has spread all along one of our boundary walls.

The cherry tree at the front of the house is in full bloom and it is stunning. It’s quite old for a cherry tree and a bit knarly but still glorious! It’s a Japanese Cherry and the bees love it! I’m still perfecting my close up’s! The bees kept moving away before I could get any real decent shots!

Bees and frogs!

I’m going to keep playing around with this camera. Thank you Ramblingratz for the inspiration!

OH THE JOYS OF LIVING IN THE OLD HOUSE IN THE SHIRES.
