Sofia at Lens-Artists suggests we think about bokeh – the judicious (or in my case mostly accidental) application of blur to add depth and accent to our photo images.
Here are some garden bokeh, taken at different seasons and times of day. The header photo is a late autumn crab apple over the garden fence. And next up is a very wintery globe artichoke at the allotment. I like the russet tones, focused and unfocused, picked up by the afternoon sun:
Summer and a self-invited opium poppy out in the guerrilla garden:
And late summer teasels forming outside the garden gate:
An October sun-downer sunflower in the ‘upstairs’ garden:
Early morning dew on a heuchera flower in early summer:
And a May-time bouquet in the kitchen: lilac and hawthorn blossom:

It has been a .big deal in the crafting /card making industry. Nice too in photos.
Love the heuchera shot, Tish, and what an inviting dining room 🤗💟
Thanks, Jo 🙂
Lovely evocative photos.
Many thanks, Margaret.
The early morning dew on the heuchera works well, Tish!
Thank you, Sue. It’s also a photo I’d overlooked until today.
Well, worth seeing!
Lovely examples Tish. I’m with Sue, the dew on the heuchera is just beautiful
Thank you, Tina.
These are all gorgeous, Tish, and I especially like the two with the drops but the vase at the end is quite lovely.
I’m a fan of drops too 🙂
I have to agree, all photos are beautiful but the heuchera one is special.
Many thanks, Sofia.
Tish, you can nurture the opium plants and start your own agency 🙂
Happy week my friend
Hello, Mak. Thanks for making me smile 🙂
I am glad
Great photos. Love that apple banner! Stunning.
Many thanks, John.
Tish, I love the way you took us through your seasons. I especially loved the artichoke with the garden shed in the background. For me it looked like an invitation to join you in your garden landscape. Loved it. Donna
“an invitation to join you in your garden landscape” – that’s a lovely take on my post, Donna. Thank you for accepting the invitation 🙂
Wonderful set of images, Tish. It’s hard to pick a favourite, but I do especially love the way you’ve captured the morning dew. Amazing!
Thank you, Izzie.
Love that 2nd to last photo with the water drops! WOW!
