The Alphabet Photography Project V is for Vibrant #alphabetphoto

Week 22 of PODcast‘s linky The Alphabet Photography Project. What to pick for V???? The weather here has definitely turned, it’s wetter, colder, duller, and I can feel that the heating is going to be going on soon.  So I needed something to raise my spirits and warm me up. How a bit of summer colour? Yes, that would do the trick.  So My The Alphabet Photography Project V is for Vibrant.

The Alphabet Photography Project V is for Vibrant

This photo was taken at Calke Abbey on a visit with my best friend and Monkey in the summer holidays.  The colour is wonderful, nature at it’s best.

I have to be honest, as a child I really wasn’t taken with flowers, that was most certainly Mum’s department.  But now I really do appreciate them in all their variations, colours and sizes.  I’m still rubbish at keeping them alive, I certainly haven’t got the family green fingers – that honour has gone straight to Monkey.  With florists and prize-winning flower growers on both sides of his family, it’s rather nice that Monkey seems to already appreciate something I didn’t when I was his age!  Granny will be happy.

I love this vibrant bloom, it reminds me of a firework exploding on a crisp Bonfire Night.  I love the variation in the colour and the hint of yellow at the centre.  Just a lovely, summer flower, bringing a little light and colour into a gloomy October day.

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school.We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds.We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply.
