A photo blog connecting life and the natural world in and beyond the garden.
A place to create
A place to hide
A place to contemplate the meaning of life . . .
Love the flower Macro shot!
My favorite too! Hope you have the time to look at other posts. I do alot of macro shots.
Looks lovely Bonnie. Your sunflowers are enormous! And I thought my fennel was tall – do you feed it some secret mixture!
Actually it’s dill, maybe that’s why the disparity!
Wow, for me that is even more amazing! Our dill rarely gets bigger than a couple of feet!
So lovely…especially your shed.
It was one of the selling points of the property!
Poor dog . . . what’s with the thong around its neck?
. . . and yes, it does look like a lovely place . . . and lots of work to keep it looking nice. Nice shots.
So glad to read your comment hope that means the flames have dissipated. As for the thong, it’s that or rolling in poison ivy or running under a box truck!
Call me old-fashioned if you like, but I much prefer these ‘nature’ shots to the heavily processed, atmospheric ones, Bonnie. Showing my age and grounding in film photography, as opposed to artistic ability, perhaps.
Still, with or without HDR and Photoshop, I’d still like to be able to take photos as good as yours. Keep doing it :-)
Thank you! Your words are validating!
Lovely setting! Funny things about sunflowers, at least when you are in a coastal fog climate, the leaves look awful (and I’m trimming them off) and the stem is covered in powdery mildew before the stunning beauty of the flowers is revealed. Glad to connect and thanks for following Late Bloomer!
Is that gravel between your stepping stones, top photo? I didn’t have much luck with elfin thyme. The area doesn’t get much direct sun. I thought I might ask at a native nursery.
Yes it is, a crushed red stone. I too tried thyme but it would either dry out or mold. I have used Creeping Jenny but often need to trim it off the pavers!
Liked the garden photos. You might like the ones I have from my gardens on the shores of Lake Michigan. It is the blog that has the most photos of nature etc. http://www.gardensatwaterseast.blogspot.com Jack
