Garden Photography Essay

Updated on September 7, 2016

Garden photography is inspirational for anyone who wants to start a small garden. If you enjoy looking at gardening pictures, this photo essay is for you. It is quite enjoyable to grow vegetables so you can put these in dishes, and save a bit of money. I appreciate how the garden pictured here has pathways that are easy to navigate for watering the plants, which allows a gardener to get into many small and tight spaces. Although I am allergic to bees, I was very impressed by the little insects I saw buzzing along in the garden. Also, it was a lot of fun to see the miniature tractor in the garden, which made it almost seem like the plants where super-sized. I love taking pictures of tomato plants, and the pear tomatoes were the most enjoyable to photograph. So join me on a trip to the garden to see are the beauty of nature and good food that is growing for a delectable meal.

See the bee on top of the flower?  I am allergic to bees, and glad I have not been stung by one in years.  Bees are wonderful creatures that pollinate flowers, and provide this wonderful service of nature.

As I walked around the garden I was mesmerized by the bees sitting on top of the flowers, which made for the perfect photo opportunities. The bees and wasps have generally left me alone when I do not swat at them. I thought it was sad when people kill bees as these are wonderful insects that pollinate our flowers, which allows vegetables to grow. Killing a bee is not cool, and you better no do it around me!

Garden Tomatoes

Growing lots of tomato plants in your garden is always for an ideal option for design because these are relatively low maintenance compared to many other crops, and most people love a good tomato in their salad, or on their sandwich.
