I have gardened all my life. It has brought me much pleasure. Another dimension of pleasure was added when I began to photograph my gardens and plants. The camera picks up detail often missed by the naked eye.


The pictures are becoming keepsakes, and ultimately, a means of sharing with others around the world.

I haven't had camera as long as most of you. I've just been picking up bits of information as I need it. I wouldn't know an 'f' stop from a short stop with the New York Yankees. I've always heard though about the wonders of early morning light. It is a great time to take pictures.

Me giving tips on photography is a bit far fetched. I know almost nothing on the subject. Still, we all had to start somewhere, and each of us might have picked up some different things along the way.


My tip is 'Experiment with close up photography. You might be pleasantly surprised'.

You may not have many (if any) flowers blooming in your garden right now, but the winter season still offers some great opportunities for photographing your garden.

A lot of us are proud of our moonflower vines. We like to take pictures of them in bloom. With the blooms opening at night, we aren't always able to get the picture we would like.


Some cameras take better night pictures than others. Even so, the more natural light available, the better.

Throughout the spring and summer, snap photos of your gardens so that when planning the next year's gardens, you can refer to photos and decide what to plant where, what needs to be moved to where, etc. Unless you have a steel trap mind, this is very handy for remembering!

Today I went outside and was enjoying my garden so much, and I had an idea. I went around with my cell phone and took pictures of my favorite flowers in bloom. I have about 8 pictures that I can use as wallpaper on my phone.


These pictures will to remind me of my lovely flowers in the dead of winter. I also managed to get a picture of a beautiful yellow monarch on our butterfly bush. What a treat!

This is a beautiful photo of the work of spring, both gardener and wildlife. Take floral photos with an interesting theme. Normally it is a patience game, just keep an open eye and have a little free time.

While I was taking pictures of my roses, I decided to get really close. This is what it looks like with the sun shining through it. I love it!
