Changes in the garden.
Over the past few years I have spent a considerable amount of time working on a couple of personal photography projects and have neglected a few things that are important to me – my garden and it’s fascinating inhabitants.
I was sat looking through some old images of the garden recently and it struck me how different and almost bland the garden seemed today in comparison. There was plenty of green and the odd patch of colour but, sadly, nothing to shout home about.
I’ve also noticed that the number of insects seems to be down too. Whether this is because I haven’t been about to see them as much or because I haven’t had to time to sit, watch and photograph them or because they have found a nicer place to visit – I just don’t know.
What I do know – is that I have missed photographing the little critters and I have missed pottering about in the garden so I’ve decided there will be big changes next year!
What’s around the corner?
A chance meeting at a recent macro workshop has given me some much needed inspiration and a direction to go in. I know what I want my garden to look like – a cutting garden. One that will primarily attract the insects and secondly provide me with all my floral requirements throughout the season. And, I know just the lady to point me in the right direction but more on that another day.
In the meantime I’ve written a list of things to do and the changes I need to make to reach my goal, and believe me they will take some time to complete, but when they’re all done it should look good.
First job on the agenda is get a new shed for my garden tools and then return the greenhouse back to what it should be used for – growing things.
