I prefer handling photos
For the last week I've been going through numerous cd's - reminding myself - as if I needed to - of the beauty of Orchards. The main structure of the mature trees further enhanced by the lush herbaceous planting introduced during our time there. How much nicer I think to curl up on the settee and browse these images at leisure rather than at a desk - staring intently at the photo and seeing if any improvement can be made to the light or contrast etc.
Oemleria cerasiformis flowers in the background of the photo it has various common names; Oso Berry/Indian plum & Oregon plum. An underrated plant with tiny insignificant bell-shaped flowers which fill the winter/spring garden with almond scent.
