Sheffield Botanical Gardens in October

I went for a walk and photography outing in my favourite park, the Botanical Gardens this afternoon.

It was a lovely day after the heavy rain all last night and early this morning. There's nothing like a quiet walk and taking pictures when you feel bitter and twisted inside, like I did today. I'm sure you know the feeling, when you get out of bed on the wrong side and everything and everybody in the whole world is out to get you.

Anyway, I was happily snapping away, taking pictures of flowers and bees and squirrels, when the ground - yes, the ground - got me! I slipped on some very very soggy grass, sodden from last night's rain and went "a over t"!

I think it must have looked very comical at the time but I felt ridiculous, embarrassed and silly. My glasses flew off, I was covered in mud and worst of all, my camera went face down, and the lens is still full of grit and muck even though i've tried to get it all out.

My pride was bruised but nothing else. And I have these lovely pictures and a funny anecdote to tell, so it was a good day I think.

Have a great week, everyone!

  1. It's an amazing park, I take my daughter there all the time. We are very lucky in Sheffield, there are so many places to visit like parks and countryside.

  2. Beautiful flowers, I love taking pictures of flowers! And sorry about your slip, I can imagine how embarassing it is! At least you weren't hurt and maybe no one recalls your face...


I love to read your comments, so please go right ahead! Thanks in advance for your message. :-)
