in MtLawleyShire’s own garden: flowers & fluffy cat

This is over a week & a bit in my own garden: a rose, the zygocactus flowering and, of course, the sweetest, fluffiest flower:

First, my rose.  It being the end of June, I really should’ve pruned – but I’m glad I didn’t.  And do you notice the photos?  There are 2 different cameras involved.  One my little canon, the other is the dSLR.

The zygocactus: the first bud & opening flower, and then there are more.  I love how the light glows of these flowers, & I love the colour.

I am slowly catching up, but of course, I am still taking photos….storms and clouds, sunsets and trees, Hyde Park…all to come.

    It was fascinating to follow the progression of the flowers from buds to full bloom! And you have a very pretty kitty.
