How I know God guides my photography.....

"The heavens declare the glory of God, and the skies announce what his hands have made. Day after day they tell the story; night after night they tell it again. They have no speech or words; they have no voice to be heard. But their message goes out through all the world; their words go everywhere on earth."
Psalm 19: 1 - 4 (NCV).

Every time I look through the lens of my camera I see God working. Every day He reveals His majesty. Every night He shows me how He creates beauty even in the darkness. Even if I had not known Him before I started taking photos, the moment I looked at His creation up close (or far away) I see His glory and He guides me to see His beauty in all He has created. Photography just allows me to capture an image of what He has created.

Between the garden and the camera lens…

Between working in the garden and taking time out for
Between working in the garden and taking time out for
photography, Spring is really a busy time of the year for me.
Having a perennial English garden to look after and having a
hobby like photography, is really a double blessing. I am
allowed to grow many of my own subjects.
In this posting I'm just going to share some of the many
varieties of plants I am able to grow in my part of the country.
Over the years I've traveled extensively and seen many
beautiful gardens and fantastically beautiful plants. I've
brought some of the plants into my own little corner of the
world and have been able to adapt many that I was told
would not grow in the heat of the Central Valley of California
(the climate I live with for four to six months of the year).

After all the hard work in the yard, comes the fun part… sharing. In the years since I first moved here (1971), there have been many redevelopments in the garden. Today, through photography, I’m able to capture many of the changes and share them with others. I hope you enjoy what I am able to view every day and you get as much pleasure out of the pictures as I do with the actual plants.

As the year goes forward, I'll be posting more and more pictures of the garden... It has a habit of changing throughout the year... so each posting will be just a little bit different. It changes constantly between the garden and the camera lens...

And yes.... "Memories are the Sweetest Flowers in the Garden".....

How beautiful! Thank you for sharing Spring at your place! I love the honey bee. Those little fellas are hard to photograph. I feel like I can smell the flowers from here!
