This site charts the thrilling adventures they had in her.

Although it was Autumn, there were still some magnificent flowers in full display whilst leaves and vegetation were showing their vibrant autumnal colours.

Wherever possible, we made use of sunrise and sunset light.

One big problem – we know the names of some, well two or three, but the majority leave us guessing…

    All of your photos are stunning and I find it difficult to choose a favourite. I love no. 3 and no. 7- I can almost smell it. Did you smell all the flowers you photographed? They are glorious.

    Lots of love, Hil x x

    Nos 31 and 32 , what looks like Hibiscus does it for me, but they are all beautiful, super photographs.

    What a wonderful time you are having.
