Spring Flowers, Quince Leaf-Burst, Zaphod the Miniature Narcissus

I love this time of year in the garden - the trees are beginning to burst into leaf and the delicate yellow flowers of spring are in their prime condition.

Last autumn we went to Scotsdales Garden Centre  in the autumn and availed ourselves of bulbs by the bucketful.  Good value and excellent results  we had a mixed bunch of narcissi including some miniatures with are only 5 or 6 inches tall and, like Zaphod Beeblebrox, have multiple heads on a single stem.

A Day at the Garden Centre

Scotsdales, a large garden centre in Cambridge invited members of Cambridge Camera Club to come along to take photos of plants today (Sunday) we mostly split our time between shooting plants on display and bringing them back to the conference room which they had loaned us to try som more controlled set-ups  I was so taken with the blue hydrangea that I brought it home.  Must now buy some ericaceous compost to keep it blue!

Cambridge Polo Club - 4 August 2019

My first attempt at photographing this sport.  A very friendly atmosphere at the club and excellent facilities. This is a very small selection from my photos on the day
