I know we already had one Daily Garden today….but I just don’t want to put this off until monday….now that I have these images uploaded from my camera I am giddy to share them with you.
I got a Macro Lens for my birthday and I have been doing a little playing around with it. My Foxgloves are just about to go off now, but I snapped these pictures about a week ago. This little corner of my own garden is about the only area I am mostly happy with at the moment. I look around and all I can see is projects. When I get overwhelmed (constantly) I cast my eyes back to this, take a deep breath, put my head down and keep chugging away in other areas. Eventually it will all be this beautiful and I can look in any direction I want from my garden chair (which desperately needs to be repainted) and feel the smug satisfaction of “yeah, I created that”.
oh — and the foxgloves (which really are show stopping) — 6′ tall, from seed, scattered haphazardly, 3 years ago, by my then 4 year old.
