In my garden

Yesterday was the first day in nearly two weeks that I have had a day without a single commitment that involved anyone else.  I had a long list of things I intended to do.  Instead, I frittered the day away.  Between rain showers that left the grass too wet for a much needed cut, I took my camera into the garden to work on some close up shots of flowers and bugs.

May your day hold as much beauty as mine does.

Lovely ! When you can find beauty like that in your own garden no need to worry that your day was frittered away! Thanks for sharing.

Lovely shots. Honeysuckle :D

I tried taking some pictures of birds on a lake today with our new zoom lens. What a disappointment. Don't think the lens has enough zoom or I haven't figured out how to use it or the camera properly. Too fiddly for me.

And yes, I'm already tired of packing and unpacking and there are still miles and miles to go ;)
