Recently I seem to have lost interest in taking photographs except as was necessary; however the new Spring flowers have tempted me to make the effort.
First the flowers
On Tuesday seeing the sun, I rushed out to take a few photographs before it disappeared. (Actually it became quite a bright day.)
First I went out the front and photographed the daffodils in the pots. These are Tete-a-tete daffodils.
And a close up of another favourite of mine the February Gold daffodil. I just love the way the petals and sepals have that upward curl.
Later I went out and took this picture from behind. There are a couple of rogue daffodils that seem to have escaped from the pots to the edge of the paving among the plants of which I can never remember the name.
I can only think these come from seed dropped from the ones in the pot since I have never dug them up.
It looked so lovely with the rain drops that I made a close up. I then went out the back. The main colour there was from the snowdrops and hellebore. But they did not look their best when wet, so I came back in the afternoon.
The snowdrops are maybe past their best but I am so please at the way they have gradually multiplied. The hellebore looked so beautiful and prolific in their own way. I had to lie on the ground to take this!
And again a close up of one flower. And lastly I found a few daffodils coming up next to the sage bush in the herb bed. Which reminded me that I meant to cut back the sage bush before it takes over!
Now the bread
After my op, my digestive system didn’t seem to handle wholemeal bread well, so I had to revert to the white sort. When you have taught yourself to love wholemeal bread this is not easy, as white bread has a different texture and tastes insipid in comparison. So after a few months I tried half and half bread as a compromise. However this last weekend I decided I would give a proper wholemeal loaf a go.
I was pleased that the loaf (home made of course!) turned out just like proper wholemeal bread. And my tummy coped pretty well too, so it’s wholemeal from now on!
