The Real Thing

I have been asked why I only use photos from my garden versus the perfection you can find on the internet… I think it is beneficial to see plants and flowers in a natural, 'normal' setting. My garden gets moderate care, I use compost and manure, no commercial fertilizers, no pesticides. I share with the bugs and the bunnies. Yes I could have more abundant, larger, perfect blooms but that is not my style and that is not realistic for many gardeners. My garden photos represent what a ‘regular’ gardener can enjoy. So you will see spent flowers in the background, a weed peeking in the greenery, a slug bite here and there… the real thing baby!
