ABOUT ME

My passion is photography but it is a work in progress.

NOT TO PLAN. (18/05/14)

I was hoping to show you my definitive video today. It took a smidgen under six hours to take and unfortunately went tits up eight times during editing. Bugger me, I’ve been messing for over fourteen hours. Not chosen the music or done a voice over. I’ll try to post it tomorrow. It is hard. How anyone does posh video is beyond me. I need a bigger computer or I have to get better. There must be a better expression than ‘The Jobs gone ‘Tits Up’; it happens in this camper a lot so suggestions are welcome. Come to ponder ‘ Bugger Me’ is not something I'd relish so in future I’ll try and use; ‘I’ll go to the bottom of my Grandmas gennel’.

  _MG_1850  A crap shot of a Welsh Poppy in Scotland. I have lots of naff shots of this flower. It has a very thin stem and blows about. It may be something else.

This is my tame garden. I dug it up and put it in a dark place. I have discarded the fridge as a holding place as they don’t like the cold. I put it in my crockery cupboard.

_V0G0876   As you can see it is nothing more nor nothing less than a dug up bit of meadow. I know what most of it is but the straggley ones have got me baffled. (Do not ask me to identify the clovers and grasses).They have tiny flowers 2mm across and in the flower cluster the colour varies from white through blues to an indigo hue.  They tend to curls up as well as you can see. Bonny wee mites. thanks to TREVOR The lord of knowledge on such matters I now know it is a Changeable forget-me-not.

_V0G0882     Speedwell no. Help please. Too small to be a Vetch. It seems to have flowers with five petals; the flowers are always from white through to an indigo colour in a little cluster . It seems to grow about six inches tall. Sorry for the naff pictures but the light is bad, I couldn’t be arsed with a strobe and some bright person will know what it is. It is a cunning little thing .

Have fun.

    1. Trevor. my little brain is spinning. I started at 0343h this morning. by eleven I had seven video tracks edited and loaded. Then it all went to rat shit. Thanks for the ID. It is a stunning little plant. I love looking at flowers that are so tiny. I'll sort it in the morning, no worries.

    1. Pauline I'm thinking of starting again. The plants don't do very much.

  5. Once again you're stubborn enough to work at the video until you get what you want. Good luck. I will be getting my plant book out as this weekend we report all flowers in bloom so I have to be right.

    1. Keith, all the Poppies where you are are Welsh.
      It is done now and I can't say I'm overly happy with it.

  9. Maria, I love miniature flowers. The next fine day I'll go and macro some. I just hope Trevor is available to ID them.
