Weekending










  • fungi on firewood - I love how it looks like tree rings
  • these Bergenia, are a little weather beaten, but are still flowering bravely and adding some much needed colour to my somewhat sad and sodden winter garden.
  • Liberty and hand quilting - perfect for snuggling under and working on this cold weekend.
  • I joined a photographic group on Flickr, called Macro Monday.  Each Monday they give a new theme to photograph, this week it is black and white flowers. Between showers, I bundled up and went for a walk around my neighbourhood to see what I could find to experiment with. It is quite amazing how different the flowers look in each option, and what colour brings to a picture.

  1. Lovely photos and it was interesting to see the black and white version of your flowers; I've never thought of trying that.

  2. Your photos of flowers are always beautiful Julie! You must live in a delightfully pretty place, and it's not even Spring yet! How fun to join a new group too!

  3. I have always been super fascinated by fungi in the forest... I don't think that it has to be a flower to be beautiful. It's those up close details that are just so amazing that very few often take the time to just stop and enjoy them.
