The Old Forge (Sunday 22nd March 2020)

These red daisies were potted up by Refna a year or more ago. They have been providing colour in the front yard ever since, including right through the winter, and have been visible through the kitchen window. They have been flowering more profusely now it is getting warmer and lighter. They are Bellis (Pomponnette Red).

Old Forge series


We are going to have new ways to occupy ourselves to get through the next few weeks, it seems. I will be settling in different rooms of the Old Forge to do what I am doing in the hope of fresh perspectives, for one thing.
The other day I blipped an iPad photo and this led me to think that I had never used the camera on my old iPhone, so I used it to photograph the emerging camellia flowers.
Taking the photos was easy, transferring them to my PC for processing was nigh on impossible. The iPhone was almost full and was telling me to delete apps, e-mails to myself wouldn't send because the files were too large, other options failed because of passwords and log-ins. Apparently they were backed up to the iCloud but I haven't tried to download from there before and don't yet know how. Finally I installed an i-Flash gadget that let me copy them to an SD card, once I'd installed yet another app. So that's one way of filling a morning.
I also took a picture with my K-x and a kit lens as back-up, from the other side of the camellia, where it caught the sun (see Extra).

Andy Dio and the Highwaves - Daisy Belle (recorded August 1958, New York NY)
Not the greatest rockabilly record in the world, but it has a raw charm and fits the theme. This is on one of my Finbarr Rock'n'Roll Party compilations.
