A Trip to The Garden Center – If You Like Flowers Look Here

I went to see my decrepid old gran, who’s reaching 100 soon..

We took her to the Garden center for lunch, it’s quite nice there.

English weather still get’s me though, if you sit in the shade, and there’s a breeze you need to put a jacket on..but if you move out into the sun you break into a sweat.


This is my Gran’s street.

The Wasp, the most annoying thing about British summers, especially when trying to eat.

An explosion of colour.


I liked the symmetry and shadows in this shot.

    nice, a centenarian for a granny! 🙂

    anyhow, gorgeous shots as always, just the eye candy i needed after a long day.

    also, my friend says it isn’t as humid there, but that the heat sears your skin. like directly. like direct searing burning heat without the balminess of our weather.

    is that true?

    Thanks All!

    Terenceg: Yah bro, took some of my Mom’s flowers when I was teaching her to use her cam, will post soon, a bit behind in posting, a lot of travelling then back to office today..will try and catch up and tidy up over the weekend!

    Michelle: Yah it’s not humid but it burns, I got burnt sitting facing away from the sun for a couple of hours, can’t remember the last time I got burnt here..when I was out in the water diving I think.

    Myst: Just using the 18-70mm kit lens that comes with the D70s.
