In the morning garden July 1st, 2014

Okay, it's like this. Somehow, even though I have more time to do things since I retired, I often feel like I have no time, meaning time available. I've been pushing off getting back to this blog as I am the type of person who would like to have things just so, and so on, and so forth, etcetera ad infinitum. And I should tell you first about Solar Hill, all properly illustrated with my own photographs, of course. I have a garden there within a much larger garden; and I should tell you about the gardens and some of the idiosyncrasies of the place, like the silent walkers. I do and don't want to note my frustrations trying to use the cheap point and click digital camera I purchased last year which I am still trying to figure out how to use, or to be more correct how to make do what I want it to instead of what it wants to do because it's a cheap point and click digital camera.

So, if I don't start posting a few of my pictures I'll never get this story started. It does take awhile to tell. That's the way gardens are. 

Early on the morning on July 1st, 2014...

A picture is worth a thousand words I've heard, even with a cheap point and click camera. Gorgeous colours in that last photo. How I wish you could come and 'fix' our gardens. We have no skills (or ambition).

Delores, there was a time a few years back when I made a little money by "fixing" other people's gardens. It's probably more work than I can do now, especially since I'm so busy fixing my own. But I did find it interesting to see how other people thought out their gardens, or sometimes just threw things in that they like(d).

Geo - thanks go to mother nature and point and click cameras. (giving credit where it is due)
