I was quite thrilled to find these fresh flowers in the supermarket.
Each flower is about the size of my hand.
The label doesn't say where they were grown.
The colour is fabulous. You can just glimpse some larkspur from the garden which dried naturally in the vase and kept their colour.
I am hoping these will dry in the vase, then I may try spraying some for Christmas.
..with contrast and saturation and photographs of larch needles on the frosty path.
..to cover the car windscreen!
But how lovely.
Isn't it wonderful that we get excited about autumn colour every single year?
Golden moment of a golden day....
Nature does it best!
Drawing that is.
These strands of marram grass, left in the fine shell sand as the tide went out on Luskentyre beach on Harris, were so beautiful. They remind me of Chinese calligraphy in their elegance and simplicity.
Every 'stroke' has such energy and vitality.
Some rather more conventional holiday photos tomorrow....
It is 10.25pm and still not dark. I love the summer evening light and took some photographs of the garden just before dusk. I tend to take the same views all the time, so I looked for slightly different angles....
PS Isn't it easier to eat healthily when there are strawberries and cherries warmed in the hot sunshine?
