Lots of photos, a few words.
Props to my hubby for the cute paths between the raised beds. The bamboo in this pic came from friends who have a ton of it growing behind their house. Bad for them, good for me!
Very disappointed in my tulips this year. Only 4 from the 20 I planted in the fall came up (wtf?!). And all of them (those and my old ones) have only really lasted a day or two because it was hot when they bloomed. Lame. I need better tulips that will do better for me year after year. Suggestions?
…more to come on my winter sowing efforts and some mystery seedlings in my raised beds.
I’ve decided to enter this month’s Gardening Gone Wild Photo contest. Many of the blogs I follow take part, so what the hell? This month’s theme is “awakening.” I considered a few photos…
This daffodil photo was taken in March 2009 after a rain.
So was this one. I love the angle, focus, and vectors all pointing to the daff, but the colors aren’t as vibrant as I wanted, even after I fooled around with another version in Photoshop a bit.
In the end, I decided to enter this one. This photo of my flowering quince was taken last spring. I actually used it as my desktop wallpaper for quite some time. I was rather pleased with how pretty the sky looked and how it contrasted against the pretty salmon pink of the flower.
Think I picked the right one???
