Spring Time

Spring has finally arrived in Putney, and while I'm spending most of my time working on my sections of our first deliverable for The Book, I popped out yesterday afternoon for a stroll up our street to the leafy bit with the expensive houses, to catch the last of the blossoms.

It was a lovely afternoon, sunny and warm, with leaves just starting to appear and the liquid song of the blackbirds dancing from tree to tree. Even the fierce terracotta dragon was relaxing, basking in the sun, on its perch atop the William Morris house. I had my camera with me, and started playing with depth of field...

Some of the results were really quite pleasing.

A little tweaking in Lightroom, but not much. More to bring out the green in the leaves!

Pretty! :-) The new leaves do look very striking against that wall. And windflowers (anemones) - I think that's what the lavender ones are - are always fun.
