Still playing with my phone

It’s habit now that I take my phone with me when I take the dog out on my own. You never know when I might need to make a call…………… or take a picture!

Gardens around us are a blaze of colour just now, and in some instances the noise of the bees in the flowers is overwhelming.
We had some glorious blooms on our In Loving Memory and Ancient Mariner rose bushes last month but still not a single bud on the yellow Peace.

It was a beautiful morning when I walked Maggie. The day started late again as I went back to sleep after letting her out at 6.30, then had a lovely hot shower which was heaven on my back as I was really stiff when I woke up.
Although it was gone 10am, I saw only one other dog walker and exchanged good mornings as I didn’t recognise him, so he could be a visitor.
I have been meaning to take pictures of some of the flowers I pass on The Avenue, and today was it.
These were all taken with my phone, and I am really pleased with some of them. I even got a shot of a bee busy working away.

The roses were in one garden, the tall purple flowers (hollyhocks?) in another and the hydrangeas in a third.
In contrast, the picture I took of the yellow rose in the park was not good at all!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    the tall purple ones look like (what we call) rose of sharon. Hollyhocks have one extremely tall stem with multiple flowers encircling the stem.
