Seasonal Bouquets

Our untidy yard is happily filled with plants, including a profusion of vegetables, herbs, annual and perennial flowers.   The shrubs spread, vines climb and an generous overabundance of wild plants that happily inhabit our yard and provide a home for birds, bees and butterflies.

This series is selection of photos taken during the months of April through December to document the foliage and the flowers in our yard or nearby.

In these photographs, the April photos indicate the first delicate flowers of the season as well as those leaves who have overwintered.  May provides the most delicate photographs of the season, as the flowers are not likely affected by drought, disease or too much sun.  June, July and August include a vast and rich assortment of the flowers and vegetables, herbs and  ornamental plants. The autumn months indicate the stark beauty that exists after flowers have died.  The series finishes with a frosted bouquet of December.
