On Sunday, the 15th of the month, I took some video from my garden for my Bloom Day post. I am perhaps a little late in adding my post to Carol’s comment list of 104 tonight but I plan to anyway. Carol won’t mind – it’s the taking part that counts.
My Friday posting has already shown some flowers of the moment but it might be assumed that from these photos my garden was a blaze of colour. Not so, as you will see from my videos below. The flowers are really sitting in a sea of greens. I love the way my garden is looking at the moment. Soon more flowers will burst into colour but I like this time just before when green is still the dominant colour.

I have a new video camera that I just haven’t had time to experiment with properly. The quality of capture is much better than my old camera but after my initial video upload to Google video tonight I was unhappy with the viewing quality. That is why I have tried out Blip.tv for a change.
I am trying to find a way to show clearer video with the camera moving. This is tricky over the internet. Although the videos above are still not of the original quality they are much improved and I am fairly happy with them. You will perhaps notice that there is a toggle button to full screen but for a better image I would suggest you view it the size given above. I enjoy experimenting with moving film as much as with my still camera.
Finally, I have to add that I do have a few other flowers that have not made it in this posting as they were still in pots at the time of filming on Sunday morning. It was a very busy weekend and I do have a very special story to tell concerning one of the plants I bought and a garden visit I made on Saturday. I will keep you waiting a little longer for that!
The videos shown above were taken in my garden on June 15th 2008.
