This photo was taken at the Chateau at Chiverney, in the Loire Valley in September 2006.

The day we chose to visit was a day that we were camping, and thus, it was raining, which made it difficult to explore the gardens and park.

The rain did let up enough at one point for us to explore the garden outside the old servants quarters where i snapped some pics of the flowers and vegetables that were growing there.

I have a small obsession with taking close-up images of flowers and the like. This is despite the fact that I don't know anything about flowers. I like this photo because the colours stand out against green, and, because my camera is so darn good at taking pics, I even got the raindrops on the leaves.

Lovely photo...they're all quite lovely, in fact! This is my first visit to your blog and I adore the fact that you have a story to go with your photos! I know they say a picture's worth a thousand words....but sometimes words are nice, too =)

Dear chrisb. Thanks! I have been really slack lately. This week, I am getting back on track with my pics!

Dear Tracey. Welcome! I do like to take photos, though very amateur and I don't have a photoshop or anything. My words are a whimsy, I'm sure sometimes they will be informative, and other times, just blather..!
