Flowers in April!

Well over on UK Scrappers this month the photography competition is to take a photo of flowers and my Camellia bush was in bloom so too good an opportunity to miss out on! I just love the colour of this and the variegated leaves make it even more beautiful!

Well that was me sorted out I thought until this poor little bumble bee seemed not able to fly and was crawling around on the grass. We were worried about one of the cats getting it to be honest so placed it on a dandelion so it would get some food and it was very good and stayed there whilst I got my camera out! Love this one where you can see the raindrops on the wings.


I love this shot too as you do not normally take a photo of a flower from this angle - just wish the bee could have turned around a bit LOL!

Apologies for no photos yet of my prizes from last weekend - they HAVE arrived and promise to share them all with you soon. In the meantime I am hoping for good weather tomorrow so that I can head off and get some bluebells shots.

Lovely photos..a flowering camelia - my dear friend Mrs Murray who was about 325 when I met her always said that getting a camelia to flower would make her the greatest gardener. Go you!
