Summer

A lovely collection of images which all speak of summer. From the soft and subtle – gardens glowing softly in the early morning sun – to the bright and even brash, like flowers in the heat of the day drawing all eyes to them…

A field of delicate poppies at first light was quite a sight to behold, their papery and translucent petals seem barely attached and likely to be blown away in the gentlest of breezes.

'Through The Garden', Igpoty category winner and greeting card by Nicky Flint
Early Morning In The High Garden, Great Dixter
On a magical midsummer's morning; perfectly still and clear with the fresh scent of flowers and foliage in the air, quiet but for birdsong, gossamer traces of dew on fennels and alliums and with the warmth of the early morning sun on my face, it was truly entrancing to be in the High Garden at Great Dixter.

Love-in-a-mist, nigella greeting card by Nicky Flint
Love In A Mist
This delicate Nigella damascena image was captured on a mid-summer's morning, slightly misty with a hint of the scorching day to come! Such a lovely flower which, when established, spreads and pops up all over the place, as an annual is wont to do. Apart from the lovely 'love-in-a-mist' title Nigella has several other names - such as 'bird's nest' and 'Persian violets'!

Bee greeting card by Nicky Flint
A Fine Balance
I found this fella whilst photographing a friend's garden. Concentrating to keep his balance on a Pulsatilla seedhead, he seemed oblivious of me and my camera. His face always makes me smile!
