19. How Does Your Garden grow?

how does your garden growI love my neighbour, Alex. She’s used to my odd ways and luckily doesn’t bat an eyelid when I text her early in the morning to ask if it’s ok to creep into her garden and photograph some plants. So today, from next-door, some photos of what’s growing in Alex’s garden, hopefully capturing what the garden and indeed the weather has been doing…

This post is coming to you from a cold-riddled Saurus, I’m feeling a bit under the weather at the moment so apologies in advance if my pizazz factor this morning is a bit dampened. Walking round my neighbours garden, looking at the raindrops on the tomatoes and petals put a big smile on my face. Autumn may be on the way, the clouds may be grey but there’s still a lot of beauty outside waiting for us. Soon enough it’ll be crunchy leaves galore, but in the meantime I’m clinging to any colour I can find like a limpet!

Apologies for the mass of photos, I got a bit carried away, I’ve been falling back in love with a bit of black and white of late so had to sneak a couple of those ones in there too for good measure.

Favourites from last week include: Last sunbeams at the allotments, bamboo shadows, drying onions and mushrooms.

Finally apologies for the tardiness of publishing this post this week and have a super week ahead!

    Ooh I’m loving Alex’s garden and your photographs – just beautiful Mrs. Especially the colour and B&W combo. There’s always something quite intriguing about B&W I find. It’s amazing to think this time last week it was 30 degrees, no wonder you’re have a cold! Sending hot water bottles, Lemsip and get well soon vibes over the interwebs xxx

    Isn’t is lovely that there is so much colour still around. Alex certainly has some beauties in her garden, I love the little viola, they always look like little faces to me.

    Hope you feel better soon, I think the dreaded lurgi is about to visit us, I’ve been sneezing and coughing since yesterday. Thank you for the mention too x

    What a lovely garden Alex has and what a lovely lady not minding a peaky Mammasaurus in with her camera!
    The photographs are stunning, I love the crispness of the rain drops you have captured.
    Do you know, I very nearly did a black and white post this week, as I too have rediscovered my love of B&W and the multitude of weedy sins it might mask. But I still just about have some colours that I felt I might betray so I’m keeping that up my sleeve (probably for next week).
    Hope you feel better soon *passes the Olbas* take care xx

      *takes the Olbas and dowses self in it* Thank you!

      I always dither with black and white shots, mainly because there is always someone who comments on how they would have preferred to see colour ones. I’m starting to go with the ‘do what you love’ train of thought :)

    Lovely garden. I am a true nosey parker when it comes to other people’s gardens. I have photographed near neighbours before now, and snuck into the gardens of people I didn’t know, just to look at a plant or flower.
    Hope you feel better soon. I have a cold starting too. It’s that time of year again. Children go back to school, and bring home all the bugs!

    I’m gonna join in. Right now!!

    I imagined that you must be out taking photos this morning when I didn’t see the post! Imloe this set, especially the black and white ones and the raindrops. Stunning. Please thank your neighbour from us for letting us snoop! I too am last minuting and I’m not allowed to start taking pictures until the kids are home from school, they want to help, so I’ll be late too! hope you feel better soon!
