I’m getting the hang of this now. I didn’t think I’d keep up a weekly post for long but, like Nick over at Sweetgum and Pines, have found that the discipline involved in a weekly snapshot of the garden pays dividends as I now have, for three weeks anyhow, a better photographic record of it than I’ve ever had in 26 years here. I follow the same route every week, trying to photograph the same things as the previous week (if I can remember!) as well as adding whatever’s newly come into bloom. Then it’s just a case of picking six from maybe 50 or 60 photos. Yep, it’s a good thing to do.
So thanks to The Propagator for coming up with the idea in the first place.
I’ll admit to cheating just a bit. I took the photos last evening when the sun suddenly appeared from behind the clouds. Then I selected eight photos and drafted a post. Then, this morning, I nipped around checking that things were still there and hadn’t undergone some drastic metamorphosis overnight. A quick deletion of two photos (the text is in the captions, see?) and I was ready to publish before I’d finished my Shredded Wheat.
These pics are in sequence as I walk out of the breakfast room door and down one side of the garden. The back’s currently “in between” and the other side’s getting there but not yet ……….
I wonder what next Saturday will reveal. Till then, enjoy your garden.
