I’m well aware that reading a thousand words of finely-crafted prose isn’t really what you want to read on the weekend (well, unless it’s smutty fan-fiction, then perhaps…) But that’s okay, because I didn’t want to write prose today; I just wanted to take photos, and share them with you!

Here are some pretty photos from a barbecue we had earlier today. Roses and sunsets… enjoy, and have a nice weekend!

(I was shooting up into the sunset, but I had no idea it would look that pretty!)

(I think I like this one. I love the colour/texture of the grass, but the clouds are a little too busy.)

(It was a bit of a surprise to find a little spider amongst the roses, but I think he’s rather pretty… and very green! Anyone know what species it is?)

Insomnia, but not quite?
