Today I am wandering where we had our boat last year, in particular, the flowers that greeted us each time we wandered to our slip. The folks at Annapolis Landing always had fun flowers to see and photograph. I love taking pictures of flowers. I suspect that comes from my father, who took pictures of flowers all over the world. In the best sense of fairness, so have I. I have pictures of flowers that my father took, and that I took.
Part of the fun every week was to see when they changed the flowers. They did so three times. There was a wonderful mix of perennials and annuals, with the yearly versions of some flowers swapped out roughly once a month or so. The colors aren’t truly captured by the digital camera, even though they are fairly high-quality images. The color of green, blue and then the flowers aren’t easily captured by the overall pictures.
The most interesting thing for me about taking pictures of flowers is the one moment when you catch a bee in or around a flower.
One of the things we used to do when we lived in Indiana (and had a lot more yard) was rotated our flowers more. We don’t rotate them as much now, as we don’t have a lot of yards. There are flowers along the front edge of the house, but beyond that, we don’t have a lot of flowers in our current house. I would say we would add them, but as the opening statement said, we don’t really have a lot of yards to do so.
