Texture and Inspiration

To gain access to the gardens you have to go through an underpass and this has been cut through this impressive rock.

I am sure the colours and layers will provide me with some inspiration.

This window is part of The Old Mill at Bodnant. I have no idea what the huge leaves are.

Back to the theme of shadows with this lichen (?) growing on a rock in a more formal area of the garden.

How could I leave these posts without returning to the fabulous laburnum? The plants are growing over a metal frame and as well as the rust which adorned the frame these shapes overhead appealed to me. Just a word of warning, in case you are not aware, despite its beauty the laburnum is very poisonous so if you have a plant in your garden keep it away from children and don't be tempted to eat the seedpods!

What wonderful photo's. Glad you got to see the archway at it's peak time, well worth waiting 20 years.

Thanks for sharing your photos with us, there is indeed some great patterns and textures here. I have been fascinated by lichen this week too and have been posting the pictures to flickr ...
