Garden in May
A place in the sun

It is fascinating at this time to watch, day by day, the fronds of ferns slowly unfurl and the blades of the young leaves take shape. The circular shape at the end of the frond figures prominently in Maori art. It is known to the Maoris as a koru and symbolises new life, growth, strength and peace. (See examples of koru art on https://www.pinterest.co.uk/jocoxhead/koru-art/?lp=true)

The merry month of May
The joyfu; explosion of colourr and texture, vitality and energy, confirm the arrival of Spring. Too often we pass such a sight without a second thought – and yet there is so much happening!

The recent seventh anniversary of this site encouraged me to review the changes that have taken place in my subject choices, interests and the impact of external factors (such as reduced mobility and an increased interest on twentieth century art).
The image pattern above is derived from a handful of covers of CD’s on which are stored photographs taken in my pre-digital days.

There’s light at the end of the tunnel

Seven years old today!
May is the month when the poppy brings a vibrant splash of colour to the garden. Often, overnight, the furry green protective shell of the bud explodes, exposing the tissue-like petals of the new flower. Backlit by the afternoon sun, the petals produce a palette of shades ranging from yellow to deep red.
Regardless of the inauspicious beginning the site has blossomed and has given me much pleasure. WordPress statistics tell me that today’s post is No. 1378. Every post has included at least one (unrepeated) photo/image and sometimes more. There have also been more than 97,000 ‘views’ recorded. (I have yet to become involved with the social media in any of its guises!)
I would like to thank all of the visitors to this site and hope that my enjoyment in the creative process has been shared.
