Flower festival 

Every year there is a flower festival in St.Margarets church, Topsham, Devon in the UK.
I don’t always make it as it’s only on for 3 days but I did this year and thought I’d share some photographs of just a few of the wonderful displays.

The theme was health and fitness with funds raised for the local open air swimming pool. Quite a challenging theme for flower displays!

I love these bee friendly plants by bee keepers

Anyone for tennis!

Last but not least sailing.

Two exciting developments , I now have slide shows on my website and I’ve started to add some photographs to stock photography site Dreamstime.

The slide shows are thanks to Highton Ridley and a tool he’s developed to promote zazzle products. You can see them on my website here.

I’ve had a few photographs accepted on Dreamstime so far, some with animals and a nature theme naturally! I’m attempting to add my bee video, although that’s been a bigger learning curve getting it in the right aspect ratio and not having black bands!

Bee and Bird Song video 

My Ceanothus is in full bloom at the moment and the bees love it. So thought I’d share a video.

I managed to get some bird song in it too, although the 5th attempt with previous versions having neighbours talking, traffic noise & whistling!

Video is now available to download here  https://www.dreamstime.com/stock-video-bees-blossom-bird-song-video-honey-buzzing-around-ceanothus-bush-full-bloom-s-spring-purple-flowers-birds-video93313828#res18445732

All in a day

English weather is unpredictable but it makes life interesting! These photos of Westminster in London were taken within 24hrs.


They are renovating the Houses of Parliament at the moment at great cost but it is such a part of our history as well as a monumental building and tourist attraction.
