Share Your Garden Photos
        At both the March and April monthly meeting, we asked members to consider sending pictures of your favourite garden plant or garden renovations for posting on the Greely Gardeners Group website.

        One consideration is to submit your favourite garden photos of the 2015 season. In the spring, our gardens are changing almost every day with perennials pushing up at different times. This is an excellent time to capture these beautiful plants in the various stages of development. Some our the best pictures can be taken on a bring spring morning. Why not take some pictures of your favourite plants as they return to your garden and send them to us. Naturally, your favourite plants could show themselves best any time of the year:  spring bulbs and brilliant roses in May or June; native perennials at the height of bloom in mid-summer; vegetables as they ripen; or the brilliant fall flowers and leaves as September comes around.

        As a second consideration for picture taking, it was suggested that a few pictures could be taken if you are planning a change to your garden. If you are planning to design a new garden bed, to redesign an existing bed or to add a structural element like a trellis or pergola; an obelisk or possibly a statue; a pond or water feature; or a work of art, it would be interesting to see your project as it develops. Take a few pictures of the project -- before you start, during your work and of course after you have finished the 'new look'.  A useful thing to remember is to take each picture of your project from the same spot, trying to hold the camera in the same way for each picture. A series of close-up pictures and a series of pictures taken a little further away will result in showing the details of the new plantings as well as the overall effect of the changes that your have made.

        If you have photos to share, please send them to us at:
