Was out at the Plateau Discovery Gardens and had fun photographing this guy on the lavender!
This year I planted peonies in my garden. I have never had the room to plant these beauties before and was so happy to see them bloom.
Woke up to a familiar screeching this morning and I knew right away I had a visitor in my tree out back.
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!”
These are some of the creatures that I have seen recently.
These beauties are growing wild along the side of the road here in East Tennessee.
The Rose of Sharon is a member of the Hibiscus family and it’s large, flat blossoms and nectar attract hummingbirds and bumblebees.
