Pricing up root trainers for sweet pea, pea and beans, the cost was such that I could buy several new fruit trees with that money. So, scrounging used newspapers from a friend in the village who actually buys one daily and has no online connections, I made paper pots for sweet pea and beans instead of buying more plastic pots.
So cold, freezing temperatures mean the garden is suffering, even the brussel sprouts are looking sad. But, after a surreal autumn, getting out the Hasselblad again was a treat, even with frozen fingertips.
On a sunny February day the couple were visiting from their home in France to make plans for their wedding this summer.
A lovely relaxed and casual shoot, in The Photographers Garden.
New Year, new hopes. My seeds arrive.
Apple chutney with a touch of padron, delicious.
Simple things make fabulous food.
A photography workshop in September helped me to plan the itinerary for next years classes. We began the morning with a discussion over coffee to understand camera settings, into the garden for some practise returning to the kitchen for lunch comprising of some food from the garden.
The weather was beautiful so we spent most of the afternoon in and around the garden, finishing with coffee and conversation. A really lovely day.
