Tales from a garden

Yesterday, I visited a friend’s garden. It was late afternoon and the sun had just come out to play. The light was perfect for a little bit of documenting of her gorgeous plants, so here is a set of photos from that moment.

Tales from a Saturna garden…

Clematis blossomsHer plant collection is impressive, and with her expert care, all plants thrive. Including exotics like Himalayan blue poppy:

Caught my Eye… Photo Wednesday

My 2012 resolution consisted in not making resolutions. Most of my past resolutions involved eating better, sleeping more and getting a lot more exercise. Most of those resolutions were abandoned fairly quickly, or followed sporadically. So, in the spirit of keeping things simple, no silly resolutions in 2012.

Seriously, though, I resolved to work on my photo skills. Once a week – on Wednesdays – I’ll post a picture to mark my progress on the path of “eye-training”.

Here is the inaugural pic. This 2 CV was parked in front of a café terrasse on Avenue du Mont-Royal, in Montréal, last summer. I loved that cheeky saturated green! It cheered that whole side of the street.

I especially liked the statement in the back window: “Ceci n’est pas une voiture … c’est un art de vivre”. A little bit like Magritte’s “Ceci n’est pas une pipe“…
