Who needs evian ?
Coming live from the finest aquifers
rolling and travelling through rivers and streams
filtered through Mountains, Limestone and granite
and stored in great lakes and reservoirs
the purest and freshest water
and its coming direct to the tap

Camera used : Nikon D3100 with 50mm Lens
Sat in the toolshed (my workspace, where i compose this blog)
I took this photo in response to the photo challenge Lines as theres an awful lot of them in it.
with the feathered friends elsewhere – i saw the lines of solar panels on the roof – all set out in formation
then there’s the lines of branches in the tree behind the house
Lines of tiles lining the roof in very tidy order
and last but not least the lines of bricks in the end wall of the semi detached house

My “little” Acer tree, in the back garden of the house
beginning another set of flowers to signal Spring
We bought it from a garden centre in the pennines , quite a few years ago now, and planted it alongside a couple of dwarf conifers and perennials to give the back of the house a bit of colour!
It was caught out by a really hard frost and snowfall in March, when it should have flowered then. The mercury in the thermometer refused to budge, so it slept on till the Easter Holiday, and while i celebrated my birthday – one or two of the flowering buds popped out to say “Hello!”. Soon it’ll be covered in lovely pink and white flowers, and (Northwest English Weather permitting) they’ll be there to brighten up the back garden all the way through summer and early autumn – when it’ll lose its foliage and it’ll prepare itself for the following spring.
Camera Details : Nikon D3100, No flash, Natural light, Yongnuo Prime Lens 58mm

Over the last few days i’ve been taking part in a photographic challenge
#challenge30 involved taking pictures with my trusty second hand Nikon DSLR camera on thirty subjects – each with their own unique title.
i particularly enjoyed taking photos from an abstract view, changing simple items into something else.
The pictures have been stored on a gallery on flickr’s website and you’ll find them here

it was Mothering Sunday today,
and I have had the annual dilemma on what to get my mum for her mother’s day pressie
in the end, I plumped for some flowers and chocolates
(mum was happy with them!)

Stored inside this
Each bite holds a wonderful flavour in its juice
Enticing the eater to have some more
The only question to answer….one bite or two?
