Our house was built in 1910. During the second world war, the bottom half of our garden was used as a community allotment… pretty cool right? At some point between then and now, it became part of our garden again. The garden is long (over 120 feet), with a towering apple tree mid-way down.
These photographs were taken looking out of our garden. The surrounding gardens belonging to our neighbours are well established, with mature trees, shrubs and well-kept borders. We have low fences and hedges on both sides, affording me a great view of their gardens from ours.
One late afternoon last week, blue skies mingled with a dark storm cloud… the sort of cloud that when combined with bright sunshine, illuminates everything with a deep golden glow and makes it all appear slightly other-worldly. I grabbed the camera to take some shots over the fences and hedges before the sun dipped behind the cloud.
