Garden Photography In The San Bernardino Mountains

Updated on August 19, 2016

There is something invigorating about photographing a garden up in the San Bernardino Mountains. During the summer months the climate is ideal for growing a variety of fruits, vegetable, and flowers, which is something I documented with my camera back in July. Come with me for a virtual tour of a garden with the photogenic Sweety cat prancing about. If you enjoy garden photography like me, then grab your digital camera and take some photographs of your garden to share here on Hubpages. So what is your favorite fruit and/or vegetable to pick in the garden? I would have to say mine are chili peppers and tomatoes, just to share.

      Those vine ripened tomatoes made me wish I could reach right into the screen and pick some! They looked luscious!!! My mother-in-law used to grow nasturtiums and use some of the spicy flowers in her salads. Not only did they add a spicy note, but they were pretty as well. Enjoyed viewing the growing pumpkins, morning glories and fruit laden apple trees. What a bounty!

      Hi Barbergirl,

      I really love morning glories, and I think their name is well deserved. Thanks for your nice comments!

      Hi Marie,

      I love blackberries too, but I think those are one of my sister's favorites. Thanks for your lovely comments!

      Oh, Julia, this is so beautiful! The morning glory and the roses seem so touchable from my screen. I like all of your work but this one is by far my favorite!

      My favorite garden fruit is blackberries, yum.

      I think my favorite picture was of the morning glories... it seemed like they were glowing in the picture. It is amazing how many pictures you can take of everyday items and still come up with something amazing!

      Thanks, for sharing. I like your use of color, which comes naturally from your surroundings. I especially like the morning glories and your use of light as well. My favorite of course, is Sweety Cat on the garden steps!!

      Hi Claudia,

      I love blackberries, too. I have never tried to grow those, but that sounds fun.

      This reminded me of a time I visited Chicago's botanical garden and saw a very exciting orchard where they were growing many things, including eggplant, leek, tomatoes, chili peppers, zucchini, spinach, chard, beets, apples, pears, blackberries (which are my personal favorite to grow), etc, etc, all of it lovely.
