    Lovely capture, Jude!

  2. Robyn Haynes says:

    Viburnum is one of my favourites.

    1. Heyjude says:

      This is a bit sad. I need to re-pot it I think. Or find a space in the garden.

      1. Robyn Haynes says:

        I think they do best in the ground. But a large enough pot would suffice if it’s well fed.

        1. Heyjude says:

          I’ll see what I can find 🙂

      2. restlessjo says:

        Must be heaps of space? Are you keeping stuff in pots pending your garden plan? X

  3. DailyMusings says:

    just beautiful and I love the composition of the photo- the white and green and the blur background.

  4. Very pretty plant and an excellent macro, Jude. 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Sylvia, just taking some pictures of the garden although this one came with me.

    Likes are nice, but comments spark a conversation…

    But what if I’m not feeling chatty?

    1. Heyjude says:

      Then keep shut o_O Or maybe I should just ignore you… dumdedum de dumdedum…

      1. Arkenaten says:

        You’re just a meany.

        1. Heyjude says:

          I thought you weren’t talking?

        2. Arkenaten says:

          Ssssh. I wrote that in sign language.

  6. Lucid Gypsy says:

    Beautiful and scented I hope?

    1. Heyjude says:

      It is a very small plant, I think I need to repot it. My neighbour had a huge bush and I know that had a fragrance.

      1. Lucid Gypsy says:

        I think most of them do, in my last house I had the one that flowers in winter on bare stems. Yes yours would do much better in the ground, most things do really don’t they?

        1. Heyjude says:

          This one seems to be an evergreen. I’ll try a bigger pot as I want to keep it in the courtyard which doesn’t get much sun – maybe a little in mid-summer, but so far it is quite shady. And I don’t have any ground there, just granite slabs and gravel!

    I love the sweet perfume of the viburnum. I think they grow to be quite a large shrub. At least they do over here..

    1. Heyjude says:

      I’m afraid this one will have to stay in a pot so it won’t get too big.

      1. pommepal says:

        One day you may be able to let it escape…

    We had one till we got a new fence this year. Now I’m not so sure. Inviting shot Jude. Does it feel entirely like home now? X

    1. Heyjude says:

      Having roamed around the world for most of my life I’m not sure what a home should feel like other than comfy and a place to want to be in. I am looking forward to making changes and buying furniture and getting it how I like after being in the rental for so long, but I’m not rushing. I want to do it properly. To be honest I enjoy the planning as much as the execution. Having second thoughts about the remodelling – seems more trouble than it’s worth and I think there may be better things to spend the money on (like a trip to Australia…)

      1. restlessjo says:

        How could I disagree? X

        1. Heyjude says:

          Why do I get the impression you are sitting with a smirk on your face, looking all innocent? o_O

        2. restlessjo says:

          Smirk! Me? I wouldn’t know how xx

        3. restlessjo says:

          More likely I was wishing I could come. One last BBQ tonight and it’s home tomorrow. Cooking again will not come naturally xx

        4. Heyjude says:

          You have reminded me that we have still to buy a BBQ!

  9. Beautiful macro, great details, lovely colors 🌺

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thank you. Sadly the flowers are all gone now.

  10. A wonderful macro, Jude, full of vivid detail and depth. 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      Glad you like it Cathy. Didn’t you recently buy a macro lens?

      1. Haha, yes, I did buy a macro lens and I have to sheepishly admit I haven’t tried it even once! Soon, I hope! 🙂

        1. Heyjude says:

          I find mine a little tricky, but when it works then it is quite astonishing!

        2. Guess what I just discovered, Jude, showing my total ignorance about cameras? I thought my telephoto lens was a macro lens. I didn’t realize they are two different things. I really should take a photography class. What I have is a telephoto lens, not a macro lens. 🙂

        3. Heyjude says:

          Oh, well, you should still have fun with it; getting close in from far away 😀
