153. HDYGG

I’m back! Huge thanks to Gemma for hosting last week’s HDYGG whilst I was off in Montreal. I had a lovely week away and though most of the time was spent working I did managed to sneak off some mornings to explore the city.

You know me, I made straight for Montreal Botanical Garden to explore. They have some amazing glasshouses and I took farrrrr too many photos. I’m sharing a few today and then I’ll pop the rest up over the weekend! I took my large Nikon camera and it gave me a nice opportunity to get to grips with using it more. I finally feel like I’m starting to get the feel of it after a good 6 months of having it and being a bit scared of it.

Enough of the waffling, on to the photos from the glasshouses…

It’s a glorious sunny day here and I’m looking forward to sitting in the garden and looking through this weeks posts! Enjoy the sunshine people πŸ™‚

  • Taking more photos than I can sensibly edit is one of my specialities πŸ˜‰ Looooove all the leafy shots, especially the polka dot ones, so crisp. I’m impressed you managed to seek out a garden on a work trip too. I’m STILL laughing about the bird name suggestion πŸ˜€

  • Oh I adore your photos Annie. My favourites are those stripey leaves up at the top – they look like blushing zebras! And I also love the red door! What’s behind it? I just want to peer through the keyhole! Glad you had such a fab time and thank you for hosting xx

  • I am just oohing and aahhing with every photo! Beautiful subject and great photography as always!

  • glad your getting to grips with the new camera now. love the pattern on some of the leaves, I selected a few houseplants this week based on their leaf pattern only
