I was feeling a little hard done by that I am pretty much limited to stuff in my house or garden for Thematic Photographic pictures at the moment; I can't just take a trip out to find some cool photos.
Then I realised that so far I've had plenty of material right here, and I should appreciate the things that surround me every day... I think these make into the 'Branched' theme:
Ivy.. something we are not short of in our garden!
Thistles, these are over now for the season but when in bloom they attract large numbers of hive bees, bumblers and other bee-relatives.
