Nature in abundance

 

The qualities a plant is born with is where the word nature (natura, Latin) derives. I embrace the lifecycle of plants from birth to rebirth or death in my photography.

"Such beautiful images, Gina. You have captured the gardens soul, and mine."

Globe thistle gracefully dying in the walled garden of Kelmarsh Hall, Northamptonshire

Echinops bannaticus purple glow gracefully dying in soothing Autumn light in the walled garden. I waited 20 minutes for softer sunlight to create most of these images. The forecast gave cloud and sun, but , The popular globe-shaped flowers and dry heat tolerance adds architectural interest to borders from spring to late autumn. Bees Butterflies and other insects love Echinops too, so it is my intention to incorporate it into my own garden.

‘Queen of Sweden’ captured on film on my 50mm lens after it caught my attention at @kelmarshhall. Her shape is reminiscent of a China Tea Cup. Isn't she poetic? Lose yourself in her beauty. Go for a walk in nature. The natural world is multi-talented.

Bred by the famous David Austin nursery in 2004, named after the Queen of Sweden in honour of a treaty of friendship and commerce signed by Sweden and Britain.
