Liddesdale: Meadowsweet

This common, creamy, luscious flower with its froth of petals and pretty clusters of buds is one of my favourite plants. I crouched down low to photograph it against the purple-blue clouds on a hot summers day.

Liddesdale Sheep

LiddesdaleSheep

I have been on another visit to the Liddel Valley – most of my photographs have been of flowers by the roadside, as I was interested in the variety in this hill-farming environment, and wanted to see how many different species of flowers I could see along a mile or so stretch of country road. This will need some sorting before I do my roadsideflowerblog; so instead, here are some Liddesdale sheep, on a sunny day, in a flowery field.

Puddle 3

reflection1

Even during this hot summer, there are puddles at the bottom of slopes. This is all so transient. I appreciate the contrast of the muddy rim, the muddy water and the clarity of the reflection of the leaves. Everything is changing.  If I walk round the puddle, from another angle I see nothing.  In the photograph, when it is enlarged, the puddle water has all kinds of mauve colours in it. The camera picks up more than my eyes. Or has a different interpretation.
