I didn’t let the rain put me off today. I snipped away at the roses, orange thyme, scabious, daisy-like matricaria, pittosporum and – oh joy! – the first green stems of jasmine. Then I grabbed the camera and snapped away before the drizzle turned torrential.
Once the flowers were safely indoors, I took some more photos, including one sweet-smelling lilac rose in a lemonade bottle. It was really dark indoors because of the rain clouds, but I turned on the room light, changed the ISO to 1600 and the aperture to 4. I haven’t started using a flash on this camera yet.
