As I’ve mentioned earlier in my “Hard Work Pays Off” blog entry I would share more photos of my gardens as the perennials change throughout the seasons. This photo is one of the several perennials I’ve taken pictures of this week.  I just didn’t find any of my other photos good enough to make the cut for entry.  This one photo deserves to stand alone in this post.

Sempervivum, Hens-and-chicks, Houseleeks
The rosettes transform into thick stems and create clusters of starry flowers at the top. This biennial is a great groundcover and does very well in most conditions (even with little soil).

Hard Work Pays Off

Gardening time!  I love it!  Fresh air, sounds of the birds, staying fit, being creative, and getting my hands dirty.  Not only do I do gardening for work, but also for enjoyment.  My yard has a few established gardens after eight years of maintaining, dividing and transplanting, and plant swapping with other gardeners.

With a request for botanical photos, I decided to use what I’ve work so hard at doing right in my own backyard and use what I have as my subjects.  Here are a few for you to view.  As the seasons change, so do the flowers.  I will post more photos as the perennials change.

Survival

I have two varieties of tulips in my garden and have been watching them cycle through another year. After a week of constant rain, this tulip managed to keep together where all others dropped their petals.

With the month of May not even over, the records of precipitation the last several days have pushed the total precipitation accumulation toward all time record levels in the Manchester and Nashua area.  It has rained for over a week now and I didn’t think it was possible to capture anything on camera in this weather pattern without ruining the camera body or lens or having to dodge the rain drops. With slight breaks between rain storms and or sheltering my lens with a waterproof jacket, I managed to overcome the rain and get some really good photos this last week.

One Late Evening

I’ve been experimenting with night photography using a spot light as a flash.  I wanted to draw your eyes toward the rock wall, White Birches, and the small garden shed by using flash.  I used a slow shutter speed 30 SEC to capture the quick “off camera flash” and allowed time for the ambient light in from the sky and stars.

Evening Delight

It’s nice to come home to see three smiling, tail wagging dogs. Each one of them wanting to fetch the ball, eat dinner, and harass me while I unload my truck from a day’s work-all at the same time. No matter what age they are (seven months, eleven years old, or twelve years old) each one of them greet me with unconditional love and excitement.  They give me energy when I don’t think I have anymore left at the end of the day.  Each one barking and/or herding me to go for a walk, run with them, pet their tummy, throw the ball, throw the stick, go for a ride… Each dog wanting different things at the same time. They instantly make me smile (even when I think I don’t have one left to show).  My dogs are a great addition to my life.  Thanks to my four-legged, life-long, friends.

Need I say more?

A sunset like this one can only enhance the importance of the simple things in life and reintroduce the beauty that’s right in my own backyard. I live on a hillside which allows me to see, appreciate, and sometimes capture moments like this one on camera. Every sunset is unique. The days I have to travel for work, I try to get home before dusk. This allows me to be greeted by my dogs and settle-in from the day’s challenges and responsibilities, before the sun closes off the day.

The evening I captured this sunset was a great distraction and couldn’t be missed. Sometimes I feel I’m the only one that can see it. Or, as if I have front row tickets to the most important show. The brilliant colors, the shades of blue layering the hills across the way, and the sun’s size and brightness grabbed my attention. Each piece and all it’s spectacular colors, drew me in to a peaceful mindset.
