If I whetted your appetite with my flower pattern’s post yesterday form the walled garden at Belvedere House, Co Westmeath, here are some more photos. The garden slopes, so some of the photos may seem to be a a bit of an angle.
Patterns and shapes are everywhere in Nature. Today, we visited Belvedere House and Gardens in Co Westmeath. Once a country villa, Belvedere is now owned and managed by the local council. You can visit the house, enjoy lovely woodland walks and a fairy garden. But for me the highlight was the walled garden. There was a small vegetable garden, an ornamental pond, fruit trees and some beautiful flowers beds. Here colour, shapes and patterns blended and did everything to please the eye.
I was also happy to see many pollinators, mostly honey bees but also three different bumblebees species. The honeybees were visiting the pond to gather water. It is the first time I have witnessed this, though I have read about it.
Joining with this week’s Lens Artist Photo Challenge – Patterns.
Joining Wild Daffodil’s Photographic Monthly Meet Up with this month’s theme – Flake.
There were many layers of paint of this old boat; a little bit like life, multi-layered and interesting.
This week’s Lens Artist weekly challenge theme is “blue”.
Blue brings to my mind two things. The sky and the sea. The combination of blue sky and sea is magical.
Firstly Newport beach from our trip to Wales earlier in the summer.
Then closer to home, Ross beach, and below Beltra beach, County Mayo.
