Mindfulness Photography (Spring)

Hello.......... Over the past week I've taken part in a mindful photography project over on Facebook and just like the last time 'here' I thought I'd share the images on my blog.

The aim was to take take 5 photos in one week, of the things in life which make you feel Grateful, Happy, Loved, or Valued, so here's my five.

Photo one: Represents a family Easter. Here at the Summerhouse it just wouldn't be Easter without a retro style Jelly bunny, (from a vintage orange mould) this years bunny was Pineapple flavoured with Lime Jelly for grass.

Photo two: Is a quick pic of the Easter Yarny Chums, who helped to decorated our mantle,  both bunnies were gifts from crafty friends and I made the chicks. It's lovely to have a little yarny goodness mixed in amongst the eggs and flowers

Photo three: Is of a Camellia that my Dad planted, it means a lot to see it flower each year since he passed away, there is only one bloom on it this year but it sure is a stunner, with thanks to my lovely Dad xx

Photo Four: Is Another favourite from the garden, I love the flowering currant, in fact I could write a whole post on how stunning this plant is, it's just the perfect pink, looking amazing against the Spring greens but even more so against clear blue skies it has flaw however and that's it's fragrance, but hey ho no ones perfect.

Photo Five: Is about loving all the fresh news greens, it's wonderful to see the trees waking up from winter snoozes

Well that's my five mindful photo's, as it turned out all inspired by the season, thanks for taking the time to have a look Joining in with Amy's Five on Friday
