Memories of Summer

Today has been yet another miserable day. Karen and I went out this afternoon in the hope that we could get some piccies. But while we were out the heavens opened and it absolutely poured with rain. We decided that it just was not worth getting out of the car. So we came straight back home.

Now I was left with a dilemma - no new pictures to post - oh no!!!! 

So I started looking through my archives (can you believe I have archives). 

We visited these gardens in Norfolk last summer. It was really beautiful - so full of colour and trees (I love trees lol). So I had a look to see which I thought was my favourite picture. And this one is it. So peaceful looking - even though the water is full of algae and is green. 

I really like it, I hope you do too. 

 Oh, by the way the car has had its tyre fixed and so far so good. 
Now just to sort this damn weather out, lol.

Green is my favourite colour! This is a gorgeous shot. I really like the algae, it looks like a lovely path through the garden.

Ellie, a most gorgeous photograph! So nice to see such beauty on a dreary day. You captured the colors, lushness, and depth in a lovely manner. It's always fun to look back in the archives. Viewing old images take me back to the time I took them.
