I LOVE lavender! I only wish I could keep it alive. Even Green Thumb D couldn't bring ours back from the brink. Love all these, but especially the fuzzy bee bum in the first shot and the lovely soft colours in the third. Happy Wednesday. xox
Keep trying...mine thrives on neglect :-)
As always beautiful photos. The bumble bee makes me laugh, our dog Nigella is obsessed with catching bees, bumble bees and wasps. She was once stung badly by wasps, and has now taken it on as personal mission to decrease the population on her own. Of course with all our herbs growing along the front of the hut, Nigella is beside herself with opportunities for snapping. She even positions herself nearest the basil with the most flowers in order to get the best opportunity to catch them!
oh I hope she doesn't get bitten again!
Gorgeous photos Ally. Different lavenders, varying shades and compositions and some wonderful bumble bees! What's not to like!
I'm loving all the bugs over at your place too
these are just gorgeous gorgeous shots!!!!
Your lavender is lovely indeed:) I love brushing my hands up against lavender, it's such a pretty smelling flower. I used to have a beautiful bush of it but with all of the rain we got last year it died, way too much water. Your photos are stunning Ally, I love the softness of the third photo. I hope you are having a lovely Wednesday. xx
I saw you had been buying plants Catherine...will you try again with the lavender. In a pot under an eave somewhere?
Your photos are always amazing. I love how you captured the bee with the flower too.
Thankyou. Hope you are having a great week
Beautiful photos, gorgeous colours and a cute little bee :)
soft and delicate, calming and beautiful.... Exactly what I needed. Thank you sweet Ally xx
hello Michelle - hope all is well.I read about a lady who had a lavender bush just ourside her laundry to dry her hankies on...how lovely would that be?
i especially love the last one which for some reason brings to mind the idea of a "garden ballet"... a wonderfully perfumed graden ballet!!!!
we see dancers everywhere Iris!
I love lavender and bumble bees. You captured them both so well!
Your photos are just beautiful, I especially love #5 where the green is striking against the purple :)
I'd love to hear from you - in fact it will probably make my day
