A Kitten Called Betty - Nature

A few days ago we spent the day in the garden and I was able to take a couple of photos of some of the flowers before we started the hard graft.. It's mostly greenery in our garden, which always means lots of pruning. I have been know to get a bit carried away with the secateurs and yesterday was no exception, we even roped all the kids in as there was so much debris from the hedge/tree!
 Anyhow, this next photo did make me chuckle and my husband Paul came up with the caption!
Fifty Shades Of Purple!!!
There has been rumours that I pruned this with my nail scissors but this is all mother nature's work!!!
I love the delicate stamens on these yellow flowers and managed to capture this hover fly waiting to be seated at the dinner table!!
We spent a lovely day at a local country park with friends recently, the sun shone (until the rain came!) and the kids were able to get the kites out and make the most of the breezy day. So this is my interpretation of one of Mother Nature's invisible wonders - The wind.

A Kitten Called Betty - Nature

I didn't think I'd get an opportunity to take many photos yesterday as we had several hours of rain but by late afternoon it had dried up and I decided to take my camera up onto the lane outside our house to see if I could photograph the thistles. My youngest was with me and he pointed out several bees buzzing around collecting pollen from the thistle flower heads and I managed to capture these shots. It was definitely a case just snapping away as once the bees decided to move it was very hard to keep up with them.

We're off the the park today so I'm hoping to capture some more nature shots as well as the kids playing.
Have a lovely day where ever you are.

August Photo Challenge

I can't believe it's August already, I'm not quite sure we've had our summer yet so with the promise of sunny days (I can dream can't I?) and a new theme for the monthly photo challenge over at A Kitten Called Betty I'm hoping that August brings lots of photo opportunities.
