What the eyes don’t see

I have to put glasses on to clean the house these days else I overlook its grubby state until it’s quite far advanced. Even with them on there are many of the pleasanter details that I fail to see and so today I made the most of some intermittent sunshine and with camera on the tripod, the lens zoomed, I switched focus to the kitchen windowsill garden.

leaf details of French lavender
usually I’m so captivated by the blooms that I fail to notice the charm of French lavender leaves

aromatic, soft-toned French lavender
Lavandula stoechas subsp. stoechas French lavender
tiny bejewelled heads of deep purple tufted on top with lavender bracts
miniature scented geranium -apple
what the eyes don’t see, the heart does not grieve over…until the camera lens spots a host of aphids  blossoming with scented geranium
french lavender single blooms
woolly stems of French lavender keep the pests at bay

      1. I find it’s always worth looking at what’s right under your nose – I find so many photo subjects that way. Provided that your glasses are clean enough to see through them 😀

            1. I see I answered one comment with the other ones reply – confusing – but it almost makes sense! Happy solstice – it was too cloudy in London to see the rising sun

              1. Ha – I hadn’t even noticed that both your suggestion and my reply were on YOUR post instead of mine. But as long as we each get what the other is talking about … 🙂
