I moved to the lovely city of Providence, RI last year, and I am really enjoying the city lifestyle once again. I love the fact that I can walk to dinner, to the train, and also to the mall (a big "yay" for Nordstrom's). I am an avid gardener, and I was a bit lost after the move, due to the fact that I had to give away and sell my vast orchid collection. *sniff, sniff* But I was pleasantly surprised when I found that 1. I have enough light in my northern exposure windows to grow a few orchids. 2. They have a garden club in my building, with a space on top of the parking garage for some raised bed garden plots. Yay!
|This is just 5 WEEKS or so along, planted May 1. Still can't believe the growth!|
|That's my building. It's an old foundry converted to really cool loft style spaces. I love it!|
|Someone's allium. Not sure what it is? This one might be garlic.|
|Cornflower (Bachelor Button) and daisy from another plot.|
|My dahlias. So gorgeous! I didn't enhance the colors either!|
|How can you not love daisies?|
I love taking photos of many things, but flowers and plants always seem to fascinate me the most. Mother Nature never ceases to amaze me, it doesn't matter what season it is, and I'll always be her most passionate student.
I'm also constantly amazed at the quality of the photos that my little iPhone4 takes. The flower pics were all taken using Hipstamatic app.
Oh, and if you want to Pinterest any of my artwork or photography from here, please attach a link to this blog and give me credit. If you don't, I will find you and hurt you ;)
