It doesn't matter which part of the country you live in by now you'll have noticed spring is defiantly here. It has taken a while in Scotland but during Easter weekend I really felt like the weather was starting to improve. My parents spend long hours in our garden over the summer and keep it looking lovely so when you start to notice the colours in spring it is really beautiful. Last week mum asked me to take some photos of the daffodils to share with her friends on Facebook and I thought I could share them with you today. If you've enjoyed these photos please let me know below and I could share some more when the plants really start to grow.
The majority of the daffodils in the woodland area are your average variety but we also have a container of rare, more specialised specimens. We have 'Fortune's Crest' 'Coulmony' 'Loch Maree' 'Cotterton' and 'Red Hackle' but I can't tell you which is which sorry. My mum does know if you are especially interested though. We bought them at Brodie Castle where there is a collection of over 400 different varieties.
Since getting my DSLR in January I've been struggling slightly with landscape shots and can't get the focus and depth of field correct. I will have to keep practising as I did study photography at school and should be able to do better than that. These photos have put me in the mood for warm weather and being able to lie in the garden again. Hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend.
