Garden perspectives

I have been trying to capture the feel of my garden with a camera....I just don't think it is possible....especially the soft breeze, the fragrances, the birds singing......the nearness to heaven I feel as I walk around here...  the thrill of a new seedling emerging through the soil, the colors, the textures, and the absolute abundance of beauty that surrounds me here in my garden...

I am going to try to share a little bit through these pictures...I have used a 1960's filter on them because I just like the way it looks...like treasured photographs from an old homeplace...I plant heirloom plants and trees in order to stay true to the era of our house..built in the 1930's....



















I hope you can imagine what it is like to be in this garden of mine..maybe one day I will open my garden for tours..one day....like my Grandmother did..she had people from all over the nation come to see her gardens and admire her daylilies and other flowers....she made an impact on the plant world from right there in a little south Georgia town.....she was a true example of  Bloom Where You Are Planted...the key is being planted in the right place...and then it is easy to BLOOM!   from looking at these flowers, we can see how exceptional it is to bloom....these blooms reflect that......they are just responding and opening to the SUN!  we can do that too...

                                       thank you for stopping by today..I hope to see you again soon...


                                                      I hope your garden is filled with blooms....

  2. Mona, the 1960's filter do make the already stunning roses more so. We do have a whole lot in common...ballerina china and such. It was nothing for 45 pieces at an estate sale and I went back for it a week later. Do take pics of yours. Your Japanese Maple is gorgeous too. They are difficult to photograph for me but so lacy. hugs, olive
