Bubbles

Bubbles
Bored with the run-of-the mill desktop photos I thought I'd have a go at taking my own. What I wanted was something detailed enough to be interesting but not overly colourful or complicated in order not to interfere with the desktop graphics.  This picture of bubbles I like because it has all of these elements. I like the way the bubbles look like little Mandelbrot sets - who knows this image could even have been computer generated.

Blooming Onions

Those onions I wrote about in my last blog.Well. They've gone to seed. This means they have produced flower heads early on in the season whiich is not supposed to happen. From my reading on the internet this occurs when the conditions aren't quite right with the little darlings. My brother in law, who has successfully grown onions before has had the same problem, which indicates that it's not my soil conditions that are a problem but something more widespread. I have been left thinking that maybe this exceptionally wet weather has not been conducive to happy onions.
