Singest of Summer

“That thou, light-winged Dryad of the trees,
In some melodious plot
Of beechen green, and shadows numberless,
Singest of summer in full-throated ease.” John Keats

Molly sitting under goant leaves with white chiffon veilAs the prompt last week was outdoor photography and as you have probably noticed that is definitely my thing I thought I would see if I can manage to post an outdoor image for all the Sinful Sunday’s in June.

I took this one a couple of years ago at a private garden that an photographer had hired for the day and I was invited to go along for the day. This amazing plant is Gunnera Manicata also know as Giant Rhubarb or Dinosaur Food and it tucked away in a corner of this garden but the moment I saw it I knew I had to use it in an image. It was starting to rain so I only got two images and when I got home I was delighted that both of them had come out pretty well. The other might appear at some point but I picked this one to post because it is Michael’s favourite. Sinful Sunday badge

Wow – the addition of the veil changes this image for me completely. I feel it adds a virginal tone to it. Maybe that’s why it’s Michael’s favourite lol.

It is, of course stunning. Intrigued what the other image is too. Certainly looks like a spectacular garden. x

Oh my, Molly, you look like you are materializing in a of wisp of smoke. I love it.

You look fabulously fairy-like in this photo!

We have a gunnera plant. My husband got it from one of the neighbors last summer (“Sue gave me gonorrhea!” he exclaimed – uhm, WHAT?!?), and it’s awesome. In a funky, huge, prehistoric kind of way. It’s really bushed out this season, but it’s not THAT big; the leaves are about three feet in diameter. Not big enough to hold a Molly. 🙂

I keep saying !I love this image!” every week, don’t I?

But it’s true.

This is a surreal image – so very poetic. ❤️

That is truly amazing. A really beautiful scene, with it’s own lovely dryad.

(That may be tautology; I think all dryads are beautiful. Goes with the name and myth. Pedantry/off!)

Anyway, you make a lovely dryad! And a wonderful green photo!

it could be a scene from A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

This is AMAZING! Until I read the words I assumed it was a composite image and you placed yourself on the leaf afterwards. It’s fucking mahoosive! Xx

There is something unreal and fairytale like about this, so beautiful!

I assume it hasn’t changed your mind about rhubarb though ;-p

This image has sent my mind off creating stories which I think all the best ones do. Imagining you taking the opportunity to make it also makes me smile. Lovely. Just lovely.

Oh Molly, just incredible! Like an actual real live faerie ?
So whimsical- the weather adds to the perfect atmosphere x
