Woodland shade gardening with a purpose – pleasure, creativity, rainwater collection!
I thought I heard a plant, or a garden faerie, whispering “Just LOOK at me – put down the camera and just LOOK at me.”
Well, you know I didn’t really think I heard that, but maybe it can be good advice. While sitting at the computer looking at some photos I had just made, I saw a spot of bright yellow in one. Quickly I went outside to examine the Eva Peron Bed, and realized a Louisiana Flag Iris bud was the spot of yellow that surprised me in the photograph! This is only April, but there was a nice, colorful, fat bud, which opened fully only a few hours later! What a delight! And here is also a photo of the yellow Baptisia beginning to bloom.
Now, I’m going to go for a stroll through my gardens, with Emily and Katy, and just look and enjoy. The camera will not be with us this time. But I promise to take it with me SOME of the times I stroll in my gardens, so I can share the gardens with you in photographs.
