Memory book and macro pics

Another week plus has gone past since my last post, I can't keep up with things recently - the time is going so quickly.

I have been busy the last couple of days, working on a "memory book" as a gift from me and my two sisters to my parents on their diamond wedding anniversary. Sixty years of photos to look at, decide which ones to use, either photograph them or scan them, edit any which need it etc. We then had to fathom out how to actually design and make up the memory book - I'm using the company that prints my photos so we were able to upload the photos direct from my computer but that in itself took close to a couple of hours. My sister travelled down from London on Saturday and was here for eight hours! We were working solidly for virtually all of that time - and we are only half way through! So I have the rest of it to do, placing the photos and adding captions. I'm very tempted to order a book for myself - it was great looking through all the pics, brought back so many memories. But don't expect much in the way of posts this week either!

I'm still getting to take a few photos while Mary of Forest Walks fame is away on holiday, just local ones but there's plenty to take. Here are some of my recent favourites. The hoverfly was minute - barely longer than my little finger nail.
