Photography and Gardening

Gaillardia

My gardening hobby is beneficial to my photography hobby. I can grow my own subjects!

This poppy is so elegant and charming. I’ll be planting more of these.

I’m not a big fan of roses but these Knockout Roses bloom until the first frost if I’m diligent about pruning the faded blossoms. They add a tremendous amount of color to the front of our house and remind me of the rosa rugosa or beach rose so often seen on the coastline in Maine.

  1. Beautiful! I love that poppy. I’m not a big fan of roses, either, but they do add a splash of color to the yard. (My husband’s the one with the green thumb, but I’m learning.)

  2. Wow, a pink poppy! Love it! I ended up with a big ol’ orange one mistakenly in my garden. It clashes with the other colors there, but it is quite persistent, so it lives.
