I love Dahlia, their flowers and the smell of their foliage. I only have one variety, a “spider” dahlia, in my garden, but it is so lovely that I fall in love with it each year, and of course I take lots of photos.
However, I also like to edit my photos a little bit, and one of my favourite edits is simply to invert the photo, and guess what? My dahlia looks totally awesome inverted, like some tentacled maw about to swallow you up. What do you think?
I had a niggly little thought
but it was full of holes
and so I didn’t say it, but left it in my head
and that’s as good as any place
to store it I suppose.
I had a little leaf
and it was full of holes
and yet they made it beautiful, an elegant design
so I found a way to keep it safe
and let it’s whole self show.
Just a bunch of photos from the last little while – hope you enjoy.
I’ve been a bit preoccupied with “inside” art stuff lately, but here are a few photos from outside.
Yesterday is was very warm and today there is a gentle drizzle, so you can almost hear all the plants sighing with happiness as they drink it and feel refreshed.
Wherever you are in the world, I hope your weekend has had that effect too.

Trying to choose between them can be hard.
Like finding the balance between light and dark.
So when I find time for both it is wonderful.
I’m not one for the “selfie”,
and I don’t usually indulge,
but there’s a time and reason,
to “selfie” I suppose.
And this past week has been it,
I’ve taken a whole two,
and now I’m going to show them,
to you lucky, captive, few.
Number one was my favourite necklace,
when I wear it I feel sleek,
and Number two was matching hair,
to my pendant of the week.
So there you have it people,
the real reasons I indulged,
it’s not about myself, you see,
it’s about the things I made!
