Time, as they say, is flying and the days have turned into a bit of a blur just recently. I haven't been visiting as many blogs as I really want to, and have not been taking anywhere near as many photographs as I would like. Hopefully things will calm down over the next few days and I'll be able to catch up with everyone. Fingers crossed!
# 23/365 - I'm sure it's a wasp...
The bottle brush seems to attract as many wasps as bees, and that explains why not every detail is clear in the shot above. I was standing as far away as possible without using the zoom and I chose this one because of the contrast of colours (including the blues and purples in my blouse!)
# 24/365 - Fresh Garbage
This is a scarf that I bought many, many, many years ago in Fresh Garbage in Belfast, a shop that is just about big enough for a couple of people to browse in at the same time. At one time I would have bought lots of things for myself from there - indian cotton dresses and scarves, silver jewellry, incense - now I go in to buy presents for the younger generation! I've had this red & gold scarf for so long and I still use it because I LOVE it, although it's soon going to have to be upcycled into something else, as it is now very worn in places. I'm not getting rid of it though!
# 25/386 - burning spice in the evening
# 26/365 - beside the forget me nots
Another wildflower, which I haven't identified yet, that has turned up in the little wild patch in the garden. The flowers are slightly larger than the forget me nots and are very, very pretty.
