I am planning to sew today, and in fact have just been outside taking photos of leaves that may be used in the piece I'm going to do for TIF. More of that later when I have something to show.
There has been a little rain this morning, and I was side tracked by the rain drops that remain and took some shots of other things while they still glistened. Someone asked if I'm using a macro lens on the camera - I have a very simple Nikon digital camera that only has 4 megapix, but a good menu of settings so I'm using just a normal shot as well as a close up setting for my flower and bug pictures. There is a lot of trial and error and many are deleted!!
This is a David Austin rose called "Heritage", it is very fragrant as well as beautiful.
I bet you can't guess the next one - its the flower of an Aubergine or Egg Plant. I have several plants and they are laden with wonderful purple fruit that is nearly ready to harvest.
