2013 Project365 (Day 110)

Blooming marvellousIt has been a beautiful, sunny and warm day on Guernsey. This beautiful plant is on the window ledge in my parents conservatory. I think it is a ranunculous and it is beautiful!

I have spent the day going to a carboot sale, walking with The Little Mister in the buggy.

This evening was spent at my sister’s house eating fajitas and watching crap TV shows with my Mum and my sister.

Life is good.

Spring has sprungIt feels like Spring has actually sprung today!

This morning The Mister and I walked up with The Little Mister to the animal shelter to see if they have any kittens. At the moment they have no young cats or kittens suitable for re-homing with a young baby which is a shame as I am desperate to get a couple of cats! If anyone knows of any available please let me know.

This photo was taken in my garden. I have no idea what plant it is but is the most glorious splash of vivid yellow.

FlowersIt has been such a lovely day today and I have been pretty active. I walked to church which took about 45 minutes and then Mum and I walked back to my house after lunch.

We walked through the park and the flowers are looking gorgeous and this flower-bed had obviously recently been planted and it was so cheerful. Roll on spring!

KohleriaI slept really badly last night and as a result I have been quite grumpy all day. The Mister has a cold so he didn’t sleep well and then I had a sore back and was up and down all night. The next three months are going to be fun!

I was just sitting in the conservatory wondering what I could take a photo of today when I looked to my left and saw this beautiful plant. According to the tag stuck in the pot it is a Kohleria. It has gorgeous, subtle markings and is a lovely pinky colour. Very pretty.

OrchidMy parents have a number of orchids in their conservatory. They seem to survive especially well in there and this is the most beautiful one they have at the moment. I think they bought it in St Malo in June.

This orchid is white, and huge and has flowered for several months.

It manages to look strong and delicate at the same time. Gorgeous!

7 September 2012After having had so many exciting things to photograph whilst on holiday I am finding things a little quiet at the moment. Mainly because I am quite sure you don’t want to see boring photographs of the house!

This is a new chrysanthemum plant that is sitting on the picnic table. The flowers are so delicate and they are really small, no bigger than a 10p piece in size. Lovely.

Beautiful begoniasWhen asked what my photo of the day should be Dad suggested that I took a picture of this three tiered planter that is planted with begonias. It really is very beautiful and I think it is Dad’s favourite at the moment.

His garden has won a few prizes this year, but the veggie patch hasn’t done so well. The potatoes did great, as did the carrots but the tomatoes got blight and the beans have been disappointing. You win some and you lose some I guess!

AlliumNo more sea pictures today, although we did go for a quick swim after work. It was really cold today, much chillier than yesterday, and wasn’t quite so enjoyable! It has been another beautiful day and we had a barbecue in the garden with Mum and Dad.

This allium is in Dad’s garden. I really like these flowers as they have such a structural shape. They look like lollipops stuck into the garden!
