Garden Photography Is Enjoyable
It is quite refreshing to take photographs in any garden. Honestly, I love looking at pictures I take of plants from assorted gardens and compiling these into photo slideshows. My garden photography might even serve as inspiration for a future art project, or a print photograph might just a beautiful thing to admire on its own. So garden photography has so much to offer, and can even help the avid gardener to plan next year's garden. Reading gardening books is still one way to learn about new plants and gardening techniques, but online articles about gardening and photo slideshows can also serve as inspiration for novice and seasoned gardeners alike.
One of my favorite things to photograph is tomato plants. Tomatoes are also one of my favorite fruits to eat. You thought tomatoes were a vegetable? No, these are most certainly a fruit and taste wonderful in salads. I highly recommend growing tomatoes over buying the mass produced ones at the store. Spring is upon us, so it is time to start growing some tomato plants.
Taking pictures of the garden is fun and soothing. I love watching the tomatoes and the banana peppers grow. Banana peppers are tasty pureed with tomatoes into a savory and fresh salad dressing, and I am dreaming about all the things I can do with produce from my container garden right now. Spring cannot get here fast enough, and I want to start growing some vegetables in my garden again.
The white and pink daisies in these containers are so inviting, and I love looking at flowers when I wake up in the morning.
Above is a photograph I took of the beautiful planted carnations, which I think are a highly undervalued flower. These are so vibrant and pretty, and I am not sure why more people do not appreciate this unassuming flower.
Here is a video I created of photos I took of flowers and plants in the container garden.
As you can see from the pictures above it is quite easy to grow flowers and vegetables in a container garden. Why spend money on a few cut flowers that will soon wilt when you could buy potted flowers that will last much longer?
Here are a few pictures I took of a garden up in the San Bernardino Mountains. The red chili peppers are so vibrant, and conjure up memories of lovely salsas, and spicy potato bakes. I love gardening because this gives me an opportunity to make some lovely food.
The black-eyed Susans are charming and vibrant flowers for any garden.
The tomato plant laden with juicy fruit makes me dream of salads, and my own take on hummus that I eat with a spoon. I make a hummus that is more like a soup by adding less tahini than is usually called for, and lots of raw veggies blended in. It is quite scrumptious, and tomatoes always make a lovely base for these.
Above is a video of the photographs I took of the garden up in the San Bernardino Mountains. The large sunflower was very inspiring to me, and one of my favorite pictures.
