Welcome to my Blog.

 

As a nature photographer I enjoy getting out of doors to go shooting flowers and what better place to find flowers than in gardens. I am fortunate to have a number of friends here in High River, Alberta, who are fabulous gardeners so I have plenty of opportunities locally. I also love to travel and wherever I am I look for gardens to visit. I recently created a gallery of gardens, here on my website, that I have visited. I am now creating a series of blog posts designed to share my garden experiences with whoever happens by.

As we head into winter, still under the shroud of Covid, I will continue to add gardens I have visited to my list here. I would love to hear from readers of this blog - have you also visited some of these gardens? Are there gardens near you I should definitely put on my "must visit" list? Or just say "Hi"!

Take care and stay safe.

In the Artist's Studio With Joyce Brown

I'm taking a bit of a departure from my usual virtual garden walks today. I have been a member of a group of artist's who sell their work out of Highwood Gallery & Gifts in High River AB for about a year and a half now. The artists struggle to share the word about the gallery and the work they offer there. In an effort to help out I offered to re-...

It All Began in a Garden - Patti Frostad's Peony and Alliums

As we wait and wait through this long winter I sometimes wonder - will Spring ever come. Then we have a few mild days like yesterday and today and I truly believe! Yes we will have Spring - we will visit lovely gardens again. It's still a while away and until that time comes I hope this virtual garden walk will help you pass the time.
