From the garden

I bought myself a DSLR earlier this year. I’m still very much a beginner when it comes to taking photos with it, but I do notice the difference between them and the ones I took with the old point and shoot. Especially when it comes to background blur!

Here’s some snaps from the garden. Just for a bit of fun I’m posting the original, and a version I’ve popped a filter on in PicMonkey.


The last coneflower. I love coneflowers and think they’re just as beautiful looking tattered and torn as they are all shiny and new.


My crepe myrtle has suffered many lost limbs over the past couple of years. It didn’t flower this year as the limbs that are left are newer, but it didn’t disappoint with its Autumn foliage.


Crepe myrtle.


This plant’s name has eluded me. It has delicate orange flowers and a wonderful citrus scent.
