My passion for gardening and photography go hand in hand! One fuels the other. Here are a few of my horticultural "babies" and my attempt to capture their persona on film. Amex Potentialist Canada #PotentialistCanada
We all have dreams, things we want to accomplish in our lives, but how many of us realize our potential to accomplish them? American Express Canada thinks there are quite a few Potentialists out there …
With a rectangular lot, it's defined easily by the front garden and back garden! Cold winter winds make this part of the garden a real challenge - we often loose specimens here. The deer also eat half the stock! We hope to deer proof with some black netting next year. We hope to still let the wild life visit and the winds blow, but keep our view interesting and as natural looking as possible. #PotentialistCanada
Old rusty cow bells hanging from the rafters of the potting shed. I would love to learn how to make my own garden sculptures out of plaster or wrought iron and then tuck them half hidden amongst the plants.
Autumn Sumac's in front of the piercing October sun. I love these little trees and have rescued them from being annihiliated in our neighbourhood. They are not invasive here, too cold, but add such great colour in the fall - how could anyone hold a grudge against them? #PotentialistCanada
This euphorbia spurges gives a shot of citron exactly when you need it - in the spring. Tricky to get a good shot, but I think this one passes. I use this llittle guy all over the yard to add some interest in the duller areas.
This is taken in full colour! Winter is a gardener's time of mourning and research... I feel photography and gardening go hand in hand. One passion fuels the other. This photo, as cold and dreary as it is, shows the bones of the landscape and inspires me to research new ways to enhance mother nature's architecture. The vivid colourful photos from the other 3 seasons, provide comfort during the long snowy months in winter. #PotentialistCanada
