Evening in the garden

Something about the light in the evening inspires me to get the camera out and photograph the growing plants in my garden. The slanting sun (sometimes behind clouds) lights everything up with such a beautiful glow.

I am just astounded at how much I am transfixed by plants these days. Since I've started planning the redo of the front garden I can't stop thinking about them. The other night I realized that I was reading a plant reference book in the bathtub.

When I was younger I liked plants just fine but now I find myself obsessed with them. What an incredible variety they show--and what beauty!


  1. Wow. That's some garden you have there.

  2. the two photos of maple leaves bracketing the blue hostas is wonderful! I love the color contrasts as well as the shapes and textures.

  3. Thanks for your comments. The garden itself isn't that special--but the plants are the stars, especially when you hold the camera right up close.


I really appreciate your comments.
