splendour in the grass: base camp

Splendour. Five Stars.
Splendour in the Grass. FIVE STARS!

Finally! Here are some Splendour in the Grass photos. It took me a while, but I eventually got there. After many a problem with my scanner and then my computer getting a virus (facebook, you are not my friend) and being out of action for a few days, I’m all set. However, I’m not sure how to organise these posts. I think I’ll go day by day. And then maybe by camera (I still have a Diana Mini film to scan in). Rest assured, there will be many, many more posts to come. In the meantime, have a sticky beak at our camp site. More photos after the jump.

Do not recommending camping underneath trees with BEES.
These trees were full of bees. And the yellow flowers shed everywhere and covered EVERYTHING. We had to camp underneath them. Do not recommend.

Blue skies and bubbles. Not a rain cloud in sight. Hurrah!

Hide out.

    Soph, words cannot express my extreme amount of jealousy right now!
    The trees are stunning, regardless of their little buzzing inhabitants.

    Looking forward to more and more!

    Much love,
    Norah x
