This photo a day is harder than I thought it would be!
I've never known what this tree is called, but every spring there are lots of them all over the place with their bright pink leaves. They turn green later. I think its a Japanese something or other! I adore them.
Recently I've had friends and family ask why there are hardly any photos of Lulah. The reason is simple, she is a doodle, she is 2. For those of you who don't know what these dogs are like, let me explain. She never sits still. NEVER. She's the happiest, most gorgeous (surprisingly) well behaved pooch, but she has ants in her pants. Simple!
this is one of about 30 photos, this is the only one even marginally in focus!
I'm cheating a bit today, because there are two photographs, but they're both of the same thing. It's a piece of driftwood that we found years ago and it sits on the deck. For some reason these photographs make me think of elephants.
I played around with one of them and made it black and white, the other is as it was taken, I was lying flat out on the deck to get these!
I particularly like the borer ( woodworm) holes you can see.
I'm always taking photographs of lovely vibrant flowers so I thought, for a change, why not take one that's deadish. This is one of the white camillias, still on the plant, completely brown, but still quite beautiful in it's own way.
