This quarantine has been hard for me – I like to be out and about with my camera as much as possible and that has been limited this Spring. People who know me, know that I LOVE photography (I get grumpy when I am away from my camera too long) and gardening.
This Spring I have been super busy in the gardens of the house we moved into in November. The house sat empty all last Summer and the gardens have needed a lot of work. This has also provided me with an opportunity to photograph a lot of flowers. And I am very lucky that my neighbors let me photograph their gardens as well.
When the weather hasn’t cooperated with my for gardening, I have been working on various photographic projects in the house (with some strange looks from my pups while doing so I might add!). And I am currently working on revamping my photography blog while waiting to see what ‘normal life’ will be like after the virus.
As Albert Einstein said “Creativity is contagious ~ pass it on!”
I planted columbine in my garden this year and didn’t realize that there were different varieties.
My neighbors have the most gorgeous peonies and I loved photographing them.
I love watching the sunset and photographing it. I have two different fields near me where I love to go.
These are some of the creatures that I have seen recently.
In the 1930’s the Iris was chosen the state flower of Tennessee by state lawmakers even though the Passion flower had been named state flower 14 years earlier by a state commission. In 1973 the state legislature orchestrated a compromise and named the Iris Tennessee’s state cultivated flower. These beauties are what are growing in my garden.
