Last of the Rhododendrons
Last of the Rhododendrons for this year. Most of them are now blown and gone but there are a few late bloomers still hanging on though they too are showing signs of their imminent departure.

Yellow Flag
Iris Pseudacorus aka The Yellow Flag - another picture made whilst on my walkabout at LilyHill yesterday. Could not resist posting a few more images made with my OM-1 II and 40-150mm f4 Pro; the art of tele-zoom close-ups.

A walk through the gardens snapping the Spring flowers. Gorgeous blooms, vibrant colours, heady scents and sunshine. Shame the camera doesn't capture smell-a-vision as the aromas were enchanting. Good for the soul.

The Watercress Line Spring Steam Gala 2024 with guest locomotives LMS Jubilee Class ‘Leander’ no. 45690, ‘Battle of Britain’ Class ‘Manston’ no. 34070 and ‘Lambton’ Tank no. 29. Smoke, steam, nostalgia and one of the locomotives an uncleaned and filthy dirty disappointment.

Discovered in a Graveyard
We were sequestered in The Thomas Lord pub in West Meon having a spot of lunch and reading its history and how it was named after the founder of Lords Cricket Ground back in 1814. It was only later that afternoon whilst taking photos in St John's Church graveyard we discovered his other connection with the village.
