~ garden mood board july/august 2013 ~















Winter's chill is still in the air but my garden is glowing yellow in the low afternoon light.
Daffodils, snow flakes and jonquils scattered through the garden, showing their cheery faces.
I gathered a bunch for the kitchen table.

My mood board for this time last year is here.

Every month I collate a mood board from my garden  - I share them with other photographer/gardeners via Asa and  Karin's lovely blogs.  How does your garden grow?

  1. Beautiful and so cheery. Mine have just started to bloom as well. I love the moodboards but I've just been so busy, or rather so slack :)

  3. Gorgeous! I'm waiting for my snowflakes and jonquils to appear. Our garden is looking lovely, but rather bare at the moment. Our camellia is on its last few blooms, a few lone orchids and a hit of yellow but I've decided we need to add some colour to our winter garden...

  5. I love this idea Ally - I might well join you each month. There are magnolias aplenty around us at the mo so that's something I'd love to capture. x

  7. How gorgeous!!! I love daffies and jonnies and don't they bring sunshine to the garden this time of year? I've recently built a new house and so am still setting up my garden. I've popped in some bulbs but I don't think they will flower now until next year. I'm missing my old house right now as it would be a mass of yellow sunshine. Your photos are beautiful and what a lovely blog. I'm a new follower!!! x

  8. You do take the most gorgeous botanical photos Ally. I'm sure I've said this before but I feel really inspired to join in with your garden mood boards. Not surprisingly, mine would look very similar to yours right now - jonquils, daffodils and snow bells have all bloomed this week - Spring is just around the corner :-) Mel x

  11. Beautiful! I am a big fan of freesias, daffodils and the like but come to think of it I've never grown them! Must do something about that.

    Yesterday I planted some viola and dianthus seedlings, the flowers will be pretty pinks and blues :-)

  12. So pretty!
    I adore winter, but I also love warmer weather & early spring blooms. We went for a walk the other day and I noticed some trees around town blossoming.

  16. Those are beautiful photos. I have discovered lots of beautiful jonquils popping up in my (new) garden, and it is like finding treasure!
