Picking Up at Last

Finally I am beginning to pick up, it all started with a sore throat that wouldn't go away, it ended up with an ear infection that gave me vertigo and laryngitis that needed a dose of antibiotics which gave me a very bad tummy. I just didn't know what to do with myself. Thankfully I've now turned a corner.  Nothing to it but to get my body in the craft room for a play. I also went out into the garden with my camera for a play, I'm still a bit wary of venturing too far. 
First I managed to finish a page that I started a couple of months ago. I knew I was going for afternoon tea at the Holiday Inn with my friend so I made a page ready to take some pictures. I had made a kit up using the Dovecraft Tea House papers. I really enjoyed the afternoon and these papers were perfect for the page.
Then I took myself out into the garden and snapped some pictures while the sun was peeping out. I was trying to use some of the techniques Kirsty had taught me. I also feel I need to get used to the 50mm lens I bought last year so here goes.
 I love these yellow flowers, I've no idea where they cam from, I haven't planted them. I love they way the start as points then when the sun gets on them they unfurl to beautiful golden bowls. I believe they are Californian poppies.
 
 Then this little guy was in a bunch of flowers I got for my birthday, I have stuck him in one of my house plants but I can't help but smile when I look at him.
