Dodder Park, Thursday 27 August

with one comment


The light is one of the things that makes the Dodder park so beautiful. Whether it’s grey and drizzly, like today, and the trees cast inky shadows on the water; or it’s sunny and the light is sprinkled through the leaves showing up the patterns of the veins and highlighting the bugs hiding underneath. Even the gardener’s enemy, bind weed, looks pretty with its delicate white flower showing daintily amid the bullying brambles and nettles. And thanks to today’s regulars who so courteously agreed to be photographed.
