Though I am suffering from the dark and wet weather I made the most of the warmth today by getting into the garden where, as well as a little vitamin D, I found this treasure. It is a half rotted poppy seed pod. I used the photographs of the amazing Karl Blossfeldt as inspiration for these snap shots. If you like plants or photography or wrought iron you'd enjoy his work.
I also photographed this Magnolia grandiflora found on the ground after a wind storm.
A sycamore pom pom.
And the plants I am painting at the moment, Love-in-a-mist.
