This evening, after a dinner of salmon and asparagus perfectly grilled by the men in my house, I pulled out my new super zoom lens and started snapping photos from the comfort of my patio chair.
|Pine cone clusters grouped like bananas at the top of my old white pine|
|Dahlias just starting to bloom among the tomatoes and squash.|
|Peeking over my fence into the far corner of our vegetable/flower garden. |
And as I realize the ability to capture images in the far distance with this lens, I absentmindedly comment, "I would make a great stalker."
|A cluster of containers going up my back stairs.|
|The pepper corner with Chili Chilly Pepper and Purple Flash Pepper. |
A comment to which my #4 son responds, "Mom, I wouldn't be saying that in public places." (Which is why I am so writing this on my blog.)
|Oakleaf hydrangea "Pee Gee" |
And #1 hubby chimes in with, "Maybe you can say you would make a great Private Investigator." He's always looking for ways to not be embarrassed by me.
|Peeking through the Ginko tree at the neighbors crepe myrtle. |
So I'm thinking I'll start the #1 Ladies' Plant Detective Agency. Yes, that would be Precious.
|Spring and Summer I have to coordinate container plantings with our canoe's seasonal storage spot. |
Because you never know what may be lurking near where you store your canoe,
Or what's coming up in your garden jungle.
So stop by for a cup of red tea and between my new powerful lens and a few years of plant nerdiness, let the #1 Ladies Plant Detective Agency work with you on solving the greatest of plant mysteries!
