I spotted the flowerbed arrangement, shown at the top of this page, early in May. I loved the contrast between the dwarf barberry "concorde", the flowering chives and the variegated iris in the background. Telephoto lens with the camera firmly seated on a tripod allowed me to take this beautiful picture.
Last fall whilst visiting a beautiful public garden in Toronto, I photographed some wonderful beds of Perovskia (Russian sage} and Echinacea (Cone Flower). Brushing against the drifts of Perovskia, bowing over the path, released a wonderful fragrance, and the drifts of colour excited my visual senses. The golden light of fall seems to offer such warmth and glow for the garden's final show. Photographing the beds was indeed a pleasure.
Gardening can be such a wonderful past time for all to enjoy. Whether you enjoy the feeling of getting back to the earth, working the soil, nurturing plants with care and patients; or, just enjoy being in a garden that someone else has prepared. Sitting in a corner on a bench quietly reading or listening to the birds, and watching butterflies and bees make a living as they visit their favorite blooms gardens bring unlimited pleasure to all. Whatever your reasons for enjoying being in a gardens, they act as a way of being one with nature.
