End of Month View : June 2014

I was totally inspired by Helene from Graphicality-UK.blogspot  who posted a short video of her garden to last month’s Patient Gardener End of Month View,   Since then I have been turning my hand to movie making, although I am not sure if I can manage doing anything other than a very short movie.  This month I recorded over 10 minutes of film on my iPad, and once I uploaded it to my PC and set about cutting it down to a manageable and interesting 3 minutes I was almost beaten.  It took me most of the afternoon!!

However, I hope you will take just over 3 minutes of your time to watch – it’s hardly worth buying popcorn for, but I think it will give you more of a feel for the garden than just photos which I will be reverting to again, as videos are too much hard work to do too often.

This is just the back garden. The Day Lilies in the front are looking fab but I am saving them for another blog post.

Enjoy the movie! You may wish to turn your volume down as I can’t quite master the volume control when adding music!

 

The music is a Royalty Free download called “Chill Jazz (Royalty Free Music for Restaurant, Wine Bar and Lounge)”

    1. Hi thank you I’m so pleased you enjoyed the post. I used the Windows Live movie maker that came with the Windows 7 package. It’s fairly simple (!) if I can do it anyone can…good luck!

  1. Well done, a great success and just lovely to watch. The white hydrangea is gorgeous. I’ve just bought a solitary Astrantia very similar to your’s so I’m hoping it spreads in the same way!

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog. Your movie is wonderful and makes me think I should give it a try. It certainly presents a different view than our typical still photos. The music was perfect and just right volume on my computer.

  3. Well done with your movie making, it made a lovely change from photos! All your plants are looking so beautiful and healthy with the rain that we have had. I have the same white hydrangea and also think it is the best!
    Many thanks for leaving a message.

  4. Shows how much work you put into your garden (when not putting it into video making!) You might even have a bit of a chance of converting me to (some!) hydrangeas with this.

    1. Hi! Thank tiny for your kind comments about the garden. I let it go a bit last year so making up for lost time. The white hydrangea is very much bigger than I imagined it would grow but I just love it. The flower heads are so large that just one fills a vase. Excellent value!
