A few weeks ago as Spring began peeping into awareness, I went out for an early morning wander through Christchurch's Botanic Gardens with my camera. One of my favourite little places to pass time there is the Heather and Rock Garden. It was a brisk morning with dew drops clinging to all of the tiny flower petals, and hues of lilac and mossy green everywhere. I felt like I could have been in the garden of a Scottish castle! The early morning light looked like crystals in the dew drops and made for beautiful lens flare in my photos.
As you can see I was still rugged up in warm boots and a coat as the mornings are still chilly!
It was so nice getting up early and having some time to myself before getting into a hectic week- are there any little rituals you have to bring some zen into your day?
