I was just having a look at some of my photos from the summer and the luminosity of this held my attention.
Not being much of a gardener (though my beetroot is doing well!), I don’t know the name of the plant. But I am sure one of you will be able to help.
Today, after a couple of weeks of suddenly much too cool weather, autumn has found sunshine and warmth again. It’s supposed to be good weather all weekend, and into next week. Back in August in Northern Ireland, this was a rainy yet beautiful day that I spent in Castlewellan. At some point I hope to get around to posting more of my pictures from that day.
Beautiful! Thank you for sharing. Exquisite light and light play in this photo. 🙂
I don’t know what it is but I love the way it mirrors the bokeh, excellent Isobel!
I was counting on you to tell me what it is!
Looks a bit like a shaved gooseberry!
Do you often sahve gooseberries, Julia?
Ditto! Or, using imagination, a mid-century modern globe-light. Either way — exquisite.
So where are all the gardeners now?
I wouldn’t describe myself as a gardener but I would say this might be a white currant. Just come across your blog, which I’m enjoying reading! 🙂
No idea what it is only that it is pretty with a beautiful bokeh!
I’d guess a white currant too. Looks beautifully lit and fragile. Nice one Isobel 🙂
But it was a tree. Would that still be white currant? I like it because it takes me straight back to the moment I took it, with water dripping onto me from the tree.
Ah, a white currant is a bush, with leaves just like a blackcurrant. Very nicely captured, whatever it is! 🙂
I should take a look at my other photos and see if I have one of the whole tree.
I can’t guarantee to identify… especially as my first stab was so wide of the mark! 🙂
You’re off the hook; I don’t have one. 🙂
But I may go back one day and photograph the whole tree. Mind you, thinking a it it, there might be a label on the tree telling us what it is.
haha.. well that would be a turn-up for the books!
Tail held aloft once more – not so hooky as Leo’s so not sure whether she has regained her “hook” power but looking good. Hurrah! 😀
Ah, thank goodness for that. Cousin’s Big Cat has a permanent kink in her tail from an injury when she was small. MasterB met someone new today who has been staying with a friend. He waked towards us, tail down. “Come on,” I said, “tail up now” and he did!
