Photos, few words

After a busy and tiring weekend in the garden, I don't have much to say this morning.

So I'll just share some of the photos I've been capturing over the last few days.


There's no theme to them, no explanation. If you're curious about the identity of a specific plant, please ask in the comments.

Sometimes it's best not to talk too much or think. After all, a garden is for the senses, right?

I love the close up on the first crinkly leaf and the wrapped up leaf :)

Beautiful! This is like Wordless Wednesday times 10!

Hi Alan, I found your blog a few weeks ago and really enjoy it! Lovely photos!

You got it! I love all the textures you captured.

I agree ... these photos do all the talking for you! Beautiful!

Love the bleeding hearts. We've got them flowering in our garden at the moment. They're a real joy in the spring.

Cool how your garden is so colorful already. We just got about 1 cm of snow accumulation today, and it barely got above freezing so nothing is making progress, at least for the next few days.

I like the sempervivums. I actually get so many that flower so that I've never taken pictures of them, but I'll be interested to see how each species turns out, and if you leave them alone, they do drop tiny seeds that germinate, at least the kind I have. The cuttings I have keep getting bigger, but no signs of making chicks yet.

You're a great photographer and gardener. You have an eye for details. Awesome!

Monday blues? Anyway, your macro shots are great!

You must be as fond of macro photography as I am - especially when photographing your plants. These are beautiful shots!

no need for words with such great images - enjoyed the colours and textures on their own. The green one (image 6) has tweaked my curiosity though

PatioPatch: That's a Colocasia gigantea leaf unrolling. They're all crinkled up in a "tube" since the leaf emerges from the stem of the previous leaf, then they unfurl. I'm excited to see how big this will get this year after I put it in a larger pot.

thanks for the feedback Alan - a bit like hosta then only bigger and more beautifully bizarre

You don't need to say anything. Your images do all the talking with how beautiful they are.
