It gets earlier and earlier, doesn’t it? Just listened to Gardener’s Questiontime while doing the ironing (I’m not a gardener, but I love John Cushnie (? spelling?). They were talking about jobs to do and how you should start doing those early springtime jobs around now, rather than March or April (but I’ve heard that winter’s coming back next week).
I was listening to that too – whilst selecting, modifying and printing a photograph to frame up as a friend’s birthday present (a little more creative that ironing… *grins*)
Still no snowdrops though? Where have all the snowdrops gone? 🙁
Oooh – I particularly like the mass of catkins in the second picture. It’s like wash-day in catkin city and they’ve all been hung out to dry. Excellent!
Yeah, I tried doing that landscape, but the what with the strong verticals of catkins and the background verticals of the trees it had to be portrait orientated really! The scene is almost abstracted out into a pattern… 🙂
And the focus being beyond the catkins and into the trees makes it feel like you’re moving through this curtain of the things. It’s a very splendid picture.
