It’s garden tour season here in Maine. I’ve missed the first few weeks, but I finally made it one last Friday and then to the George’s River Land Trust Garden tour yesterday. Here is the garden from the Belfast Garden Club Tour on Saturday.
One of the things I love about garden tours is that you get to look at real garden (at least most of them). I realize that my garden is just as great as most gardens. We often forget when looking at magazines and Pinterest photos that we’re looking at gardens that have been nipped and tucked, clipped and cleaned beyond what most of us can do. As a photographer, I also know that you can shoot around certain things, use depth of field to hide others, and use the light to get things to look different than they do in person.
Do you ever go on local garden tours?Filed under Maine | Comments (5)
