I’ve had a bit of an obsession with Houseleeks (Sempervivium) for a little while, but this is the first time that I’ve had one flower.
Yesterday, I went to Garstons near Fareham for lunch, saw this primula and just had to have it. We’ve got to find somewhere to plant it, but I though I’d take a few photos before it was planted.
I’m still enjoying playing with my Yongnuo ring flash and have been practicing my fill-in flash technique with garden flowers. Here are a few of the best shots. I have to confess that my favourite shot is the one of Thrift. I didn’t realise what a pretty little flower this was until I got right up close and personal with it.
This afternoon, I found this little chap hiding in amongst some flower pots, and managed to get a shot before he disappeared.
Later on today we visited a local garden centre and picked up a couple of new grasses for our front garden.
Here are some close up shots of the flowers.
I also took some time to take a few close-ups of some of our garden flowers.
