Summer Photographic Scavenger Hunt #3

Today is my third picture posting in the new Scavenger Hunt which launched on 1st May, it's hosted by Mary-Lou over at Patio Postcards and will run until September so there is plenty of time if you want to join in.

My previous posts all carry the label "Summer photo scavenger hunt" so you can check them out by clicking on the link.

4. Blurred Vision - So many possible candidates for this as I have a notoriously shaky hand when it comes to photographing. Here the butterfly decided to take off just as a bee came into land on the lavender giving blurred wings. Taken on 27th June.

9. A bridge  - this one is really modern and an interesting contrast in colours but it takes J back to Loughborough each Sunday, I'm a lot happier when he gets to come back again later in the week. Taken 16th June.

12. Something Crooked - looks precarious but serves a purpose - our comfrey and nettle tea bucket - free fertiliser for plants if you don't mind the smell. Taken 28th June

20. A favourite seasonal scent - the sensational scent of midsummer that is the first sweetpeas. These are so strong they might have to go in the kitchen rather than the loving room! Taken 28th June.

So there you have it, 4 more photos found but plenty more to go... Keep having fun.


  1. More great finds. I really like the scent of Sweet Peas although I never have much luck growing them. Not sure what Nettle tea is but if it is anything like my Rose Tea, which I make from fresh rain water & horse manure - the roses really like ... oh yes the smell is strong!

    1. Thank you. Nettle tea very much like your manure mix. A big pile of nettle leaves left to steep in a bucket or bin of water for a couple of weeks. Works wonders for the plants but boy does it smell!


Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment, due to an upsurge in "odd" comments all comments are moderated. I hope it won't put too many of you off. I think I've also finally fixed the issue that meant we couldn't reply to comments
