I took this photo on the most perfect Melbourne Cup day imaginable. Beautiful blue skies with a sun that warmed you through and made the garden an irresistible destination. I ventured in to the garden both to pull weeds and prune but then to study the minuteae of it all. On impulse this morning I am sharing it with all of you, not because it is a fantastic photo but because it gave me so much pleasure to watch and photograph. Although this was an impulse I have thought to return to this project many times and hope that I will be able to make the time to share photos with you all regularly and to see what you have all been up to in my absence.
