During the month of June the challenge on my Travel blog is about being creative with the depth of field (DOF). So I have been playing around with my aperture settings. These are both taken using my phone camera which has a large range of aperture settings and seems to work better than the camera. I carry my phone around with me even when gardening just in case something catches my eye and I don’t have to run back to the house for the camera.
This is my Cornish hedge which is in my ‘Wild Garden’ / Car Parking area. Having got fed up of all the weeds, brambles, nettles etc that covered this attractive structure, last year I attempted to dig all the weeds out; my son helped to rebuild parts that had collapsed. I then planted lots of cuttings of other plants from my garden and chucked a packet of wildflower seeds onto it. Although there are still plenty of Herb Robert and Creeping Buttercups, (and we won’t mention the bindweed), it hasn’t been too bad this year although the ox-eye daisies that must have been in the wildflower mix do seem to have taken over – and also get flattened by the wind. It is a very exposed site!
