From My Walk


It was really a wonderful day yesterday and I was so happy to get out from the office at least on time.

I enjoyed my photo walk, although somehow I had chosen a route where there weren't so many flowers around. I found this rather battered lavender - I wish you could smell it. Just to lean in close and inhale deeply was worth the photo!

I really wonder why I don't do that more often...

Have a wonderful day!

Looks like a beautiful walk - I won't dare go outside right now. Way too hot.

Maybe we should all take time out to go and smell some lavender, the aroma is so calming isn't it?

I think your photo is lovely, Rosie. Very natural. Well done. :)

I go out and smell my lavender plant twice a day.
So relaxing! You captured it so well!

Glad you got to enjoy the outdoors Rosie! I LOVE lavender...I miss mine so much, as it's all dried up now because of the heat. I just keep watering it in hopes that it will come back again next spring! Great shot.

I do love lavender and this is lovely, nothing nicer than brushing past lavender.

Hi, Rosie, I am so glad I found your blog, lovely photos. Have missed seeing you on flickr and the Picture Classes with Tracey Clark. Hope you get to enjoy your summer eventho it sounds like you spend most of your days inside.

DO it....and take your camera. I like this image and so glad you got out of that office and filled your sinuses with something pleasant for a change.

Glad you got out for that walk! Battered or not, your lavender is pretty. We enjoyed seeing fields of it, when visiting friends out in WA. Stunning to see it in masses.

Lovely angle you chose. I spray lavender in my bedroom, such a relaxing summer smell. Thank you for the post. I hope you're able to get out of work on time more!

Oh, I am so glad you were able to get away for a photo walk Rosie. You so deserve that time! This is a beautiful photograph. I cut a lot of lavender today, and the house now smells so wonderful!

You have a wonderful weekend dear friend.

Gorgeous! Love the perspective.

Ewa said...

it's great to get out and go for a walk and if you can capture lovely shots like that it feels even better :)

Kat Sloma said...

Gorgeous shot, but I would just as soon look at a picture of it. I hate the smell of lavender, I think I'm allergic or something!

I *love* lavender, so yes, I can smell the smell. Last year I pulled out a bush from my patio garden (the only area I can manage more or less alone) because it had gone rampant. Sadly, the replacements in pots are quite pathetic in comparison and I do rather miss the big blousy beauty!

Re the air con in your last post ...would saline nasal spray help to keep you happy over the summer months??

Take care xo

So beautiful- I love that you can just venture out & have this beauty all around you.

All of your photos are lovely. I'm doing a photography course next week - I hope by some miracle I can end up taking some photos as good as yours!
