Can you believe Christmas is just 5 days away?? FINALLY got all my cards posted yesterday...I know...appalling
Another thing out of the way is a dental appointment yesterday morning. Just a twice-yearly cleaning and polishing but still not a fun event. I celebrated its doneness by getting myself a small rum stollen : D
Now then...today's upload is just an orchid blooming in the garden at the end of October.
I thought it could do with a crop, hence V1…but I do like the uncropped version in V2 ‘cos I like how squishy and smudgy the background turned out and there’s more of it there
Went to the botanic gardens today and managed to get some interesting swan shots. Two swans doing some housekeeping. Or preparing to build a nest, maybe. Very very interesting and I was watching them for ages. Might upload them tomorrow instead of shadows. They can be Saturday Swans
I don't think they're as approachable as yours, though, Sue
Hmm...that said, I will try to get to the water's edge the next time I'm there...and beckon them.
By the way, I just loved reading the comments in my lizard upload. Thanks for the response (and votes too), people
