Nipped out to see what's growing for a little floral table display to go with Sunday lunch.  Mother Nature had come up trumps, again.

Can I take this opportunity to introduce you to Tom Misch (for those that haven't come across him).  Try 'Beautifl Escape' as a starter for 10. It's on You Tube (sorry I don't know how to do links). 

Right up my street. Such a talented young man. Only 20 years old.

Beautiful beautiful new music.

Let me know if any of you like it.

I found the videos and they are fab! Thanks for leading me to them Logan. I swear Nigel is actually smiling in the apple one!

Realy looking forwards to their return.

Lovely bright morning here. Have watered some cuttings and had a little potter in the greenhouse. Come in to listen to BBC radio Nottinghams gardening slot - love it.

I haven't seen it Logan. Will have a look though - love Nigel!

Have the photos been superimposed?

What I mean by 'true image' is one that has not been digitally enhanced such that it is beyond anything remotely resembling reality. A slightly different shade of blue from one film to another is the norm. just as people having differing eye sight is normal.

But an image that has been so heavily altered that it does not even come close to reality is, for me, misleading and not appropriate in this context.

What Mother Nature gives us, needs no camera trickery for me. I admire professional photographers and enjoy seeing their photos. A lot of that skill for some photographers is getting across the 'trueness' that reflects what most of us see.  Not a fake image of what one may think the viewer wants to see.
