I doubt its customary to name ones plants but it helps me keep them alive! Aggie the Agapanthus started as a seed three years ago and has been growing a little every year. Bright blue Agapanthus are particularly prolific in Guernsey and so remind me of home, however its been a bit of a battle to cultivate them up in the slightly cooler climes of Cumbria. Against all odds, and my negligence, Aggie is currently going strong and looked so beautifully dewy the yesterday morning that despite having lots of other things to blog about I had to post these few!
As mentioned in my last blog, here's the little bit of footage from last night:
Firstly, the name 'in the night garden' deserves to be the title of a novel or a poem! Not that children's programmes aren't important but there is more impact in the name than, perhaps, is needed. It might be the fact that it reminds me of Tom's Midnight Garden. There's a sense of mystery and magic.
Just as the light was fading at 10pm this evening, I popped outside to see what was going on in my night garden. Most of the birds were tucked up in their nests but the floral was still soak in the last morsels of sunlight. Making good use of a tripod and my skirt as a wind-break these are some of the results. I was pleasantly surprised by the x-ray style of some of the images. I did take a tiny bit of footage too, but that always takes longer to upload so for the time being, here are the photos...
Ahead of this weekend's wedding, here are a couple from Sunday's engagement/family shoot! It's always so lovely to meet and work with couples (and their families!) before a wedding, and it was especially good to meet them so close to the wedding. Bring on Saturday!
