Saving the Best for Last


I adore this photograph, maybe expecially because it's such an unprepossessing subject (and not very well photographed!) Again, it's the sun that works the magic. Who would have thought that a humble nettle could have such beautiful form, such gorgeous colour. Look at the subtle yellow-green of the flowers, hanging down like bunches of grapes. And the spider's threads glistening between the leaves. I love it.

That is remarkable. I love finding little gems like that unexpectedly.

Hello! Thank you for the lovely message. Too much running about and little Madame Splat Pig is tired out so we are going off to the countryside to have an adventure this weekend. The city is fun but we're needing some fresh air and green stuff.
