Spring in our garden

As is my custom, I've put together a gallery of photographs from this past spring, all taken in our garden at home. They'll take you from the first snowdrops and late frosts of spring to the roses, foxgloves and ferns of early summer. Our garden is a source of joy and relaxation for us and [...]

Signs of Spring

Who says we can only look at spring photographs in the spring? On my site, in this little virtual world I've created, spring comes whenever I want it, and now's a perfect time for it. Here's a set of photos of spring flowers, with a heavy concentration of daffodils. And if you'd like to see [...]
