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 a garden. 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 a new gardening season, albeit, 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 drop a line to say "Hi"!

If you would like to be notified when I put up a new blog please send me a message with your email address by clicking the Contact link and I will make sure to drop you a note whenever I post a new one.

I promise I will not share your email with anyone else.

As you may have noticed I am flip-flopping between It All Began in a Garden and  In the Artist's Studio, and I hope you are enjoying the change of pace. As I run out of artists from the Highwood Gallery & Gifts to cover, I will reach out to my community and beyond to interview other artists. Is there someone you would like to have covered in one of my writings?

From time to time I may add other topics of interest to me, I hope they will be of interest to you too.

 

Take care and stay safe.

I talked a couple of friends into joining me - it wasn't hard after all no one had been much of anywhere for a couple of years! The date arrived and we dusted off our suitcases and headed out. What a wonderful weekend! Tha...
