Playing with photos

Taking photos is one thing that I really enjoy doing and then playing with them is also something I like to do. Using filters when taking photo's can add to the character and appeal of a photo, here is a sample of some photos I've taken recently.

Days Harvest

Well JT I thought I would post some photo's of my harvest today from the vegetable garden, just so you can see how well the garden in producing over here in Australia. Today we picked green beans, butter beans, snow peas, strawberries, zucchini. Our beans are producing very well, the amount we picked today was about seven kilo's. It took about an hour and a half to process them and get them into the freezer, we won't need to buy beans over the next twelve months. I enjoy this time of the year planting out the garden, then caring for the plants and watching them grow. Most of all  harvesting the product of our labour. Got to love that....

Time To Blog

 Finding time to update my blog has been impossible lately due to a son spending time in hospital, visiting twice a day most days. Also working six days a week for the past three weeks there has not been much time to myself. It does not matter how old your children are you never stop being their mum. I have managed to take a photo or two as flowers open, some are short lived so didn't want to miss them. Here is a photo of the first flower from my Lilium Vermeer, I bought these bulbs from  Tesselaar Tulip Fesrival earlier this year.
