Frosty Hellebore

Pleased to have just won third place in the PGPA image of the month with this image of a frosty Hellebore taken last month. Hoping for another cold snap to get some more frosty images before Spring appears.

A lucky moment!

The herbaceous border at Waterperry Gardens looking rather splendid last year. Over 200 feet long it’s a really amazing sight from May to November and well worth a visit. It’s got to be one of the best herbaceous borders around!┬áHere it is June time, a lovely view and a lucky moment as a black cat crossed my path!

Snake’s Head Fritillary – Plant Photography Oxfordshire

image

The snake’s head fritillary is Oxfordshire’s county flower, this one photographed at Waterperry Gardens in April this year. A beautiful and delicate cupped flower that grows to around 30cm in height from a bulb returning year after year. Spring certainly feels like it around the corner when these appear. I was up early one morning laying in the dew in the Fritillary meadow at Waterperry to capture this picture. A wonderful flower to photograph!
