Beautiful Garden Pictures

Updated on August 31, 2016

Some of my earliest memories are playing in a garden and eating fresh vegetables and fruits. One thing I enjoy doing while tending a garden is taking pictures of the beautiful sights, sounds, and aromas. As a photographer, I love to take pictures of other peoples' gardens, and I truly admire those who have green thumbs. Walking around the paths of a garden brings me joy each day, and I am always excited about what I will take a picture of next. Join me on the garden tour as I share more vibrant and beautiful pictures of a lovely garden in the San Bernardino Mountains. There is nothing more enjoyable the scent of pine trees on a warm day in late summer, especially when you are eating ripe red tomatoes. Takes me back to days in the 1980s when I was a child picking tomatoes in this very garden.

So have you never planted a garden before? Why not take pictures of your lovely flowers and veggies in a friend's garden? People who live in apartments can plant container gardens, which make for many lovely closeup shots. Even if you do not have a garden, it is possible to go to the local botanic gardens and take pictures of beautiful sights. So grab a camera and start taking pictures of a local garden today.

Potted plants with fresh herbs that I will use for making delightful recipes.

Vibrant red chili peppers are ready to be picked for a delicious salsa dish, or to dress up a salad if your taste buds are more on the mild side.

Beautiful fresh salsas can be created if you plant a vegetable garden. Just buy some tomato plants, cilantro plants, onion plants, and chili pepper plants, and then you will be able to make fresh salsa.

On of my favorite things to eat and photograph are chili peppers, and the long red one are especially enticing. Looking at all of these chili peppers reminds me I need to use up the ones in my refrigerator and make some fresh salsa.

      I really liked that picture, but I was told by my sister to delete it. She did not want her picture online. I thought it was such a cute picture, but guess she did not like it.

      I enjoyed looking at all the garden pictures. Is the first one a photo of you and your sisters? It is such a happy memory.
