Macro Monday

It is Monday again… and all is quiet on the western front… tempers are back in check and there are no leaks! Whey Hey!

Back in 2015 we visited a place called Riverhill Himalayan Gardens in Sevenoaks, Kent. We have often driven by the signs for Riverhill Gardens on numerous occasions, but have never stopped. So, on this photography jaunt we decided to stop at Riverhill. Riverhill is a privately run garden, which is now closed for the winter. However, they will be re-opening in March 2023.

And I am sure we will explore there next year when it is bluebell season, as they do have a wonderful, wooded areas.

So here are a couple of images from that visit for Macro Monday

Both images have been processed using Adobe Lightroom Classic Software.

Happy Macro Monday everyone!

  1. Nice macro shots Bren. We also have several places that are well known for blue bells. One of the most well known is the Haller Forst (near Halle next to Brussels) –

    1. I love bluebell season… Our local woods are full of them… I just hate it when they get trampled on as it takes them years to recover.

        1. I know it is such a shame.. I keep my dog on a leash during bluebell season xx


  2. I always love your flower shots and the beautiful delicate edits you use, and these are great examples! Why is the garden called ‘Himalayan’? I assume it’s not mountainous but do they have mountain-hardy plants?

    1. Do you know what Sarah, I don’t know πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ However, from their site I read this

      “Their design is a fusion of strong contemporary land forming, inspired by the cultivation terraces in the Himalayas with elements of a traditional garden – truly inspirational.”

      1. Aha so it’s the terracing – we saw a lot of that in Nepal so it makes sense. Thanks for checking πŸ˜€
