For March’s Picture This photo contest over at Gardening Gone Wild the theme is Awakening. I just got back in town yesterday and went to Conservation Garden Park to take pictures of the garden. On the to-do list for this fall is to plant more early blooming bulbs in my own garden.
First my entry
Here are some other photos. I had a nice time photographing for the little while I was there. I was quite surprised to see busy bees already about their business. I found two beds planted with crocus and sedums mulched with colored glass. I love purples and blues so I spent a lot of time around this bed below. This is where I saw the bees so they must love the blues too!
I’m sure this bee would not be happy that I was posting a picture of its behind on the internet!
This bed wasn’t as pleasing visually for me. I guess it was the green glass, but it does contrast nicely with the burnished sedum heads.
I really liked the bulbs contrasted with the needled evergreens. In fact I like needled evergreens with everything.
And back to the blue glass bed again. I liked the groupings of crocus throughout this picture. I think that may be tricolor sedum planted in there. It sure is pretty.
I hope you enjoyed my spring awakening photos. Photography and gardening tips are always welcome. Thanks for visiting.
