Having spent the weekend plus a day or two relaxing and doing very little other than reading, sleeping and taking pictures, it's now - as we say here in NI - back to porridge! So with my first day back at work behind me, I'm spending a little time sorting out photographs and here are my shots for the last few days.
# 6/365 - Sweet pea. A small bunch of beautiful, fragrant flowers from my in-laws' garden.
# 7/365 Bog meadow - part of a bog habitat in Carnfunnock Country Park.
# 8/365 - I give you summer hours - the beautiful, weathered face of a sundial in Carnfunnock Time Garden.
# 9/365 - the picnics are over, at least for this rather sad, abandoned table.
# 10/365 the sun peeping over the old wall in Carnfunnock's walled garden, casting the shadows of the plants and highlighting the remains of the metalwork embedded in the bricks.
# 11/365 - Spice
The subject for today's shot came to me while I was thinking about making our evening meal, and the ingredients I needed for it. The spices here include cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and a mixture called Ras El Hanout, a North African spice rub which has various ingredients including rose petals. I wish that I could have captured the scent as well as the colours.
