Hello dear friends !
Like photography, gardening is another passion of mine. Every day I tour my garden and check the growth of each plant. I like to witness every stage of a plant’s growth up until its apotheosis, the blooming of its beautiful flowers. Irises, among other plants, are blooming right now and I captured them bathing in the soft light at the end of day.
I also wanted to do a still life photo with a very old book of mine. It’s an almanach dating back to 1915 which has been in my family for quite some time. The book has been fragilized with the passing of time, its jacket has many wears and tears. Its binding is not too bad considering its age, but I rarely open the book to try to preserve and keep it in the best possible condition.
I also did a bouquet with lilacs to bring their sweet perfume into the house and also to photograph their gorgeousness. I did some still life photos, here are two of them.
I was so glad when I saw this vintage music sheet with my name on it !
Here’s a little bouquet I made after I did some more still life photos with peonies and catmint from my garden
With all the summer activities like biking, kayaking, gardening and the many chores around the house, the pool and the evenings spent on the porch on the rocking chair, there’s not much time left for visiting blogs. Summer is so short, something’s gotta give. But next fall and winter I’ll have plenty of time to visit your wonderful blogs my friends !
I’m leaving tomorrow morning for Montreal where I’ll spent the whole week, I will be answering your comments when I come back.
A happy and sunny week to all of you !
