I can’t stop taking pictures of my flowers, I’m sure I’m boring my family and friends with the non-stop focus on every new bloom, I may need an intervention lol. Flowers are so beautiful and unique and it’s not just from flower to flower, but also from year to year, each bloom emerges as a singular expression of genetic history, evidence of climate effect and an entire host of other factors. I think that is why I am continuously fascinated by my plants, it never gets boring from my perspective because my garden doesn’t remain static, it’s a dynamic entity constantly changing and being shaped by both internal and external conditions, many of which are out of my control which can be a source of frustration at times. I often need to remind myself that I don’t particularly need to control the physical appearance of my gardens, I should be happy watching nature unfold organically and be grateful to be able to document it with my cell phone.
