Yarden {How Does Your Garden Grow}

For the earlier part of this week the weather was beautiful, clear blue skies with that soft sea breeze making walking along the seafront bearable.  With Mr Boo off this week we have managed to start clearing out all the junk that we seem to have collected and removed the old toys and trampoline from the yarden.

Clearing out and making space in the yarden ready for the decking to cleaned and vanished has made me look around and take a look at what little plant offering we have scattered around.  When I say scattered I mean that have managed to grow in old plant pots and along the back wall with absolutely no help from me.

Looking around the flowers gave me the great opportunity to try out my new macro filters for my Nikon D3200 camera, take a look at what I managed to capture in my yarden…

Dandelions always make me think of my childhood, from seeing them all around the park at the end of my road to friends pick them and telling them that they will wet the bed.

I’ll leave you with my favourite shot, I’m really quite proud that I have managed to capture the strands of a cobweb as well as the flowers coming into bloom.

    I have a d70 cams and some macro filters too. But I can only use the 4x ones as my cam is not cooperating. Your photos are awesome =) #hdygg
