I had been thinking about the idea of insignificance and how thistledown is blown around looking insignificant, when something blew in through the open window. It had already shed its seed. I placed the delicate 3-dimensional piece of plant on a dark blue plastic folder.
On a fairly sunny Saturday in August I was fortunate to be able to visit a National Trust Property in Sussex. It was one of the most enjoyable days I have spent at a National Trust property. The road signs to Nymans read, ‘Nymans Gardens’, but the property is much more than gardens. There is woodland, farmland, a wildflower meadow, a house with an interesting history and views over rural Sussex.
My opportunities for photography were limited as hubby and I were accompanying an elderly lady on buggy rides around the woodland and gardens. The drivers were very knowledgeable and made the day most worthwhile.
