In the Garden - April

I have photographed flowers and animals in the garden for many years but I was further inspired by a talk at the Cambridge Camera Club by Barrie and Liz Hatten entitled 'Safari to our Garden' which showed just what you can do 'at home'.  So my little project this year is to look at the changing garden over the summer and photograph it whilst trying to master the techniques of macro and close up photography. This should be a bit of a challenge as we are about to embark on a fairly large planting project.

So this is April.
