Day #1942Title: The Bluebells Are Late This Year
Location: Swan Wood, Stock
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 /14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: I took my bike for a long ride this afternoon, looking for some bluebells. I made it as far as Swan Wood in Stock, to find most of them haven’t come out yet. I think I found about 3 plants flowering in the whole wood! A poor show compared to almost the same day a couple of years ago. I thought I would give the shot a little Orton to liven it up a bit.

Day #1838 Title: Y R U So Green?
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: During another of my spins around the block to get some exercise today, I noticed these tiny mosses had taken root in a crack in the pavement. They are thriving – and no wonder, it’s been so wet recently! I thought this would make a great shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #41 – Miniature Worlds.

Day #1835 Title: Turkey Tails
Location: Galleywood Common
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: I managed a quick walk on Galleywood Common at lunch time, and was quite surprised when the sun shone for me. These Turkey Tails were growing on the side of a tree stump by the old Napoleonic defenses – a part of the Common which I’d not previously explored.
