ZOOM IN, ZOOM OUT

Rather belatedly (again!) I am joining in with HELENA'S weekly meme:

Wednesday Meme

 
I went out to take some photos in the garden just as dusk was setting in a few nights ago:

ZOOMING OUT

I had just snapped this picture of the new growth around this archway:


ZOOMING IN

Imagine my surprise  shock when I moved to walk through the arch and saw this huge grasshopper!!





you can see the red dust which I still haven't got around to cleaning off after the Saharan rain a couple of weeks ago....also the wires ready to tie in the climbers...there was no way I was removing them to take the picture!!


hoping you all have a good Easter weekend....the sun is shining here: I hope it is for you too!

thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
Alison xx

  7. He's a little bit big for my comfort zone. :) We've got a gorgeous sunny day here but still a tad cool. Looks like Sunday will be the same but Monday it's going to get warm of course.
    I hope you have a lovely Easter Alison.

  12. Alison,
    I have a grasshopper phobia and that picture about killed me!
    I can't believe you grabbed your camera. I would have been running for the hills.

  13. Golly, that IS huge! And your 'new' growth would be several years' worth here ... Lovely to see such lushness.
