24.03.14 - Redcurrant

Who needs to plant flowering shrubs when the ones from your neighbour's garden poke through the fence? :)

I took this on Sunday but only got round to processing it yesterday. We had just had a short rain shower and my son Jack told me to come to the window and look at the redcurrant bush sparkling in the sunshine. It is often difficult to capture on camera that "sparkle" that you sometimes see with your eyes, because a lot of the effect comes from movement and is lost in a still image.

Thank-you for the wonderful comments on my vintage scrapbook collage yesterday. For those of you taking an interest in the knitting project for "Tell Them of Us" here is a new and growing gallery of all the wonderful creations from around the world;
