It’s been a while, but I’m back at it. For the last year I’ve been trying to get back to my garden blog, because I love writing about anything that has to do with gardening or plants or visiting gardens. I’m not the best photographer in the world, but I have started to enjoy taking pictures of things outside. And once my friend showed me what the flower symbol on the camera was for, I was hooked. I dare any buzzing bee sitting on an open flower to deny my snappy shutter.
Here’s a little buzzing friend that I caught on the nice patch borage and Phacelia and clover in the OPW walled garden in the Phoenix Park at Bloom this year. I’m not sure if this says more about me or about Bloom, but this patch was one of my favourite things I saw that day… I’m still debating on whether or not I’ll even talk about Bloom, though I fear that my delay answers that fairly clearly. Plus, it was such a lovely bright day that my photos came out kind of crap. I still have yet to master bright sunshine photos.
I did really like this potager show garden at Bloom. (Look at that, I am talking about Bloom… but not much). I took no note at all of who designed what garden and who was sponsoring it or who supplied the plants. Why not, you ask. Because I don’t really care. What I did care about were the really cool raised beds in the garden above and how they were made out of ash saplings or branches. I even took a close up…
If you’re not blinded by the searing sunshine in the photo, you can see that the raised beds are really cool. Good way to use the ash branches that you have to keep cutting back as I have to all the time.
So this is just a quick post to get myself back in the swing of having to consistently create. More information will follow as I go along. I think I’ll just ramble on a bit, taking this path and that path, until I find my feet.
Here’s one last photo before I go. Enjoy and we’ll see you back here in the west of Ireland for more garden stories.
