6th May - Tulip Abstracts 3Some more of the abstract images using photo apps. Taking the original Tulip image, I used 3 apps on these. The top row was produced hundreds using Enlight. The bottom left was completed in Mextures and the bottom right abstract was from BeCasso with the middle image was combining Ultrapop with a filter from Filter Factory.

Yes, I have a number of these also, although not as good as this one. We could probably use it for a theme some week.
14th May - The Lone TreeAll landscape photographers seem to take picture like this - so here’s mine! Taken on our dog walk. Managed to get the photo when the clouds broke to show a little blue. Otherwise it would have been a boring grey backdrop. Edited in Snapseed.

A gorgeous little plant. You should definitely try cooking with the leaves. I got some in our organic veg box delivery a couple of weeks ago, but I can’t remember now what I put them in. I know I cooked them in something, but don’t know what.
20th May - Wild GarlicNear the Bluebells some Wild Garlic has seeded itself. I haven’t sown it, but it is very welcome and I will try to propagate from it, if I can to increase the amount. It has the distinctive smell of garlic but not as powerful as the bulb with this delicate while flower springing up from the middle towering over the green leaves. Haven’t cooked with them but I know you can so might have a go with a few of the leaves.

I love the too. Not only for aesthetic reasons, but also for their name. In Swedish förgätmigej which is elderly Swedish for forget-me-not
23rd May - Forget-me-NotsI keep these are a bit of a marmite subject with gardeners - you either love them or loathe them. I am of the former, I love them except when they start to die off then they don’t look particularly good in the garden. But as they are now, they are beautiful.
