wet grass

12 April 2010

'Wow!' is what I have been saying every morning since moving to our new flat. We have this meadow in our back garden which is between us and the old cemetery. We are allowed to use it...and it is stunning!
It is SO rare to find untamed green space right here in London, we feel very lucky everyday!

I rushed out with my camera yesterday morning and took a few snaps, I love these dew drops, they look like little aliens! The grass is growing quite long now, and I am praying that no-one comes and cuts it, I have spotted a few of my favourite wild flowers coming up, and tons of chives growing wild like a carpet, very odd, but great for a potato salad pick-nick! 

if you look REALLY closely, you might be able to spot my camera inside the water droplet!! 
As I get old (now 32 yikes!) I am becoming much more observant and get a real kick out of these small tricks of nature! I don't know why that is? Hmm ponder....ponder....

this one looks like it turned around to say hello to me...it's trying to communicate with me!!
{too much red wine before bed, or too much time in the shed maybe?}

this one is ready to roll down that slide!


I'm sure there will be plenty more meadow photos as the summer rolls on!

Also, I'd really like to thank everyone for their lovely comments over the last few days...I'm so glad you all liked my shed and I heartily advise everyone to get a shed...it just like being a kid again!
and, a big hello to all the new followers, I'm astonished to have over 200, I have to pinch myself, I really can't believe so many people are reading my blog...it's brill! 

{p.s. for those who sometimes ask me: I took most of these with my little compact sony cybershot dcs-t77 it has a great macro setting, and two pictures were taken with our works slr olympus e-400, a cheap but really good camera by the way!}
