Garden Dreaming

I planted a first sowing of peas in my community garden plot this week. Here at home my tomato seedlings are just starting to get their true leaves. I’m spending too much time on Pinterest gathering ideas, planning, and dreaming of gardens. My day and night dreams are filled with all things garden-related.

Part of our assignment for the Be Still – Fifty Two class this week is to print some of the photographs we’ve been taking and then use them in some new photos. I’ve got some ideas, but need to print some photographs before I can try them out. I don’t know about you but I take many photographs but print very few.

Since I didn’t have any of my printed photographs available this afternoon–my self-proclaimed Photography Practice Day–I decided to do something a bit different. Taking inspiration from my teacher Kim Klassen, and other talented photographers I’ve been following on Flickr and Instagram, I captured some simple images that reflect what I’m focusing on these days. I tried a square crop for a change–it does give a different feel, doesn’t it?

Nothing fancy, just simple photographs reflecting my simple garden dreams.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things.

  1. Your photography is really blooming. I wonder if I should start following other photographers on Instagram. Can you send me a link or two? I have been occupied with the software side of digital photography and am spending a lot of time learning Lightroom and Elements, and organizing, keywordimg and backing get up the 50,000 photos I already have. Can’t wait to get back outside with my camera.
