garden photography: in the heat of the moment

June is all about ‘the essence of summer’

(This month I want to see what summer means to you. Still focussing on the garden or parkland let your photographs tell me your story of summer-time wherever in the world you live. )

The next association I have with summer is heat – not necessarily the temperature as that has been a little lacking over the past few years – but heat in the borders. Summer colours become more dramatic, vibrant and loud, unlike the softer, paler pastel shades of the spring.

And remember, summer means June, July and August in the northern hemisphere or December, January and February  in the south.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Gorgeous! I feel like it is summer looking at your lovely photos Jude, despite the rain and grey outside. Eldest son is on his way to Glastonbury (practically on our doorstep) from Lewes…muddy as all heck! But…I am determined if nothing else to get a post out in time this month. Took a little walk I did, with you in mind…and that’s all I’ll say for now 🙂
