Garden Designs Photography
There is something tranquilizing about walking through a garden up in the San Bernardino Mountains. A human maintained garden makes the perfect contrast to the pine trees and other wild vegetation that abound on the surrounding hillsides. One thing I can tell you about gardening in the mountains is that it is not easy with hard clay rocky soil, and it often takes lots of digging and enriching of the soil to dig a proper garden. People who grew up in the Mid-West where gardening was easy because most anything you put in the ground grows on its own are often puzzled by the stubborn soil in the mountains of Southern California. You need to enrich the soil with manure and make a compost pile if you want gardening to work well for you here. Mostly I just love to take pictures of morning glories, squash plants, tomatoes, and assorted other flowers, so here these are.
