For years now I’ve been posting about planting a photographer’s garden. Sometimes things take a little while (or a few years) to come about. Well it has.
This morning’s walk in the garden.
I love dill. I do not use it as a culinary herb but I love it. I love any kind of full, frilly flower like dill, Queen Anne’s Lace, and Yarrow. We’ve got all three in our various gardens this year. I love these plants because of their beauty and how they draw beneficial insects.
This is a flower that’s planted in one of two beds full of just flowers. It is pink but when go through my film emulation software and hit on this setting I liked it so much I used it.
No garden is complete without sunflowers and we’ve got them. As you can see, the bees love them too.
This is chicory in bloom. Chicory is a member of the sunflower family. It only blooms in the morning. Legend suggests a maiden turned away from the Sun’s advances, so he turned her into a chicory flower that needed the Sun to live but faded in its mighty light. I need to set up a camera and do a time-lapse video of it in the morning. That’s on my list of to-do’s. I’m going to be off work tomorrow, I might just do it. I love the flowers – the rabbits love the plant. It is also a nature dewormer so I cut some for the goats and sheep to eat. Chicory will be on my list of seeds to keep in our forage garden.
This, I think, is the top of a wild onion plant. It looked so cool this morning and I like it in black and white. It looks like an alien plant.
Not sure what this plant is – it is planted in one of the two rows of flowers and herbs that I have planted along the border of the main garden. I liked the drops on the petals and the shape of the petals.
Today in my public speaking class I had to make a speech. I did not prepare for it as well as I should have. I hope I pulled it off. I did it on feeding rabbits a forage-based diet instead of rabbit pellets. I was almost late for class because I went on this photography walk-about in the morning. Glad the speech is over.
Until later …
