@richard.spicer.7906 - Hehe! Thanks Richard! That's what I absolutely love about macro photography - you can shoot quite familiar things and make them look quite unfamiliar! The detail within nature is particularly wonderful! 😀

Another interesting blog Ian & fab photography👌 I had one of those black headed gulls stuck at the bottom of one of my filled in chimney breast in the dinning room, took us over 4hrs to get to him to pull him out only by knocking out a few bricks 🙄 thankfully he was ok I took him out on to the grass went in to get him a drink but he flew off leaving us to clear up the brick dust!!! 😄

Good evening all! Not the most exciting of photographs but I'm excited to see that my octopus like #ranunculus bulbs have begun to grow! They even survived a hail storm this afternoon! 😀 #newgrowth

@kathy - I've never grown them before and had to look up which way up to plant the bulbs! Tentacles down if you need to know! 😀

@pelly - Ooh, my Gladiolus came through this week too Jane! No sign of my Anemones though, but that's no surprise as I never have any luck with them! 😀

Nothing to see here again! Just updating my plant database! Have never grown these #ranunculus bulbs before and had to look up how to plant them! They look like little octopuses and need to be planted with their tentacles pointing down! 🐙
