When I worked on a climate change research project at the Woodland Trust we had a couple of volunteer photographers who swore by early morning light. They captured the most stunningly rich images of native flora and fauna, all whilst walking their dogs in a morning. Nothing fancy – they considered themselves highly amateur photographers – just the warmth of sunlight peeping above the horizon. I was having a brew in the garden this morning and these foxgloves by the compost bins (very happy foxgloves fed by the veg peelings from @thecookinthenorth chef bookings) are looking stunning, so I thought I would share. It’s always funny watching giant fluffy bumblebees disappear up into these flowers, which I’ve planted with some ferns under a rowan tree to make a tiny little corner of woodland.
