Playing catch-up with the garden
Just in case it's hot where you are, I thought I'd print a picture of the garden last winter:
And here's a view in the fall:
I say "catch up" because I started a gardening blog in RL, hoping to do at least one complete seasonal cycle of daily posts, but discovered, for reasons to become clear, I hope, shortly, that I couldn't maintain the post after 180 or so. (Also, WordPress made a technical change that destroyed my traffic.) So, through the month of July, I'll do some catch up and then, assuming woodchucks or deer don't destroy everything, I'll start showing this year's full glory in August.
A note on the form: The photos are taken with an iPad (I know, I know...), an infrastructural improvement I treated myself at the end of last year. I then annotate the pictures with arrows and text using a free "app" called Skitch. The whole project was really about teaching myself to see, or notice, better by focusing on the world through the iPad screen. And this did work, more from the discipline of finding something to photograph every day.
So, herewith. I think the annotations are self-explanatory, but ask me anything....
NOTE For those who remember last year's posts, the milk jugs are out. And thereby hangs a tale, which I'll get to....
