Well I’m trying to get back on track again and catch up on friends blogs besides doing my own…I think the reason why I’m so behind is it Spring time…coming summer and of course the garden needs my attention. So with the garden in mind I’m showing this time round some pics of flowers from the garden

Lilac which always reminds me of my Grandmother as it was her favourite plant

Clematis Montana climbs over the fence just outside my backdoor


A special Tulip bought back from Holland

First Rosebud

What else has been going on in my life…well I’m still playing or trying to play with my camera and new macro lens but it seems an uphill struggle at the moment. For every one photo I think is ok there must be at least 10 that aren’t so I must keep practising to improve….I think sometimes I’m trying to run before I can walk!!

The weather has changed to be a lot cooler and of course we had some long overdue rain which I was so pleased to have for my garden…I’ve not played much golf although last week we did have a golf day called our ‘Spring Meeting’ where we play golf during the day in a competition (no my partner and I did not win!)and then in the evening we went back for a dinner and presentation of prizes by the Lady Captain. It’s was a lovely day and a way of catching up with friends that we haven’t seen much of during the winter months.

We also recently had a Template Challenge over at DSSA set for us by Kat and using a template she had created…as my digi scrapping has been put on one side of late whilst I’ve been playing with my camera I thought this would be an easy way of getting one done quite quickly…it was a double page template and I’ve used photo’s taken when in Galway…lots of credits go to Kat for template & B/G Paper, Conny for Fonts, doodle of seals & Bubbles, & Fernlili for other papers and’s the double page..

As always thanks so much for visiting and leaving your lovely comments.
