THE LOVE OF PHOTOGRAPHING FLOWERS AND RAISING VEGETABLES

in photography •  22 days ago

Well, another week has come and gone. I have been gathering photographs of flowers, but also some vegetables plants and the start of my outdoor garden. I had a little difficulty narrowing down photographs because I had so many to choose from; but that leaves photos for next weeks post if it is needed.

These first few were easy to choose for this weeks post. It is a flower that brings back memories of my childhood with their beauty and scent. I am speaking of my Peonies. I have two plants currently in bloom with more varieties to come. This current one is actually a young plant, maybe 2 years old. I will let the 3 photos speak for themselves:

IMG_2090.JPG

IMG_2106.JPG

Next is a nice macro photograph of another variety of petunia:

IMG_2095.JPG

Next up is a so called "weed". I do not know what it is called but was amazed when I took a closer look at it. Then when I put the photos on my computer was really amazed at it's beauty:

IMG_2121.JPG

Now for a few gardening photographs to change things up a little. First you need to be aware that gardening where I live can be challenging. I live at approximately 2,211 feet (674 m) above sea level. I live below some foothills of a small mountain. Cold air comes down off the mountain and settles by us. Typically our summers are hot and the nights cold. Our typically night time temperature in the summer is 45℉/7.222222℃. Even now that we are in June it gets even lower temperatures. 2 years ago I lost my entire garden on the 15th of June to a hard freeze. Even a few of my cold hardy plants did not survive. In that light I found I need to grow some vegetables in containers. I use both soil and hydroponics. I also grow some things in a greenhouse.

This first photo shows on the back wall some cucumber plants that I have on a shelf in the back of a small greenhouse and train them to grow across the ceiling. If you look close you can see some some fruit just beginning. To the right you will see one of 4 tomato plants growing in a pot. Usually I am eating these fruits by now, although to health issues in the family I am behind on all my planting:

IMG_2068.JPG

next are a few plants grown in containers. Cauliflower, onions, and a couple of small pepper plants. The photo is not of the quality I like but it does show what I am growing.

IMG_2063.JPG

Next I have a photo of some vegetables I grow in containers on a trailer so I can push them in and out of the garage until the weather is warmer.

IMG_2064.JPG

Next I took a photograph of a small portion of my garden after planting potatoes. In the forefront are my onions and shallots. I have enough space that I rest sections that were planted last year.

IMG_2076.JPG

This last photograph is of my rototiller I rely on to work the soil and of my riding lawnmower with an old trailer I found and refurbished.

IMG_2077.JPG

That brings us to the end of this weeks posts. I will be adding gardening photos as we move deeper into Summer. Today I have plans to plant tomato plants in a larger greenhouse/hoop house. The soil and irrigation is ready. I have so much more to get in but I am being patient as we are experiencing below normal temperatures currently

One note I would like to leave is on when you leave comments and you want to leave more than one comment, please place your second or more comments as a reply to your first comment. I know some of you do and I appreciate it. It makes it easier on me and it should not be looked at as spam. When I get a lot of spam I mute the person. I at least do not see them, although you may see them. So make it easier on me and it is easier for anybody reading comments to follow your writings.

Thank you very much for visiting my blog post. Feel free to resteem my post. You can even use my photos as long as you give me credit. I try to put my logo on each photograph. By the way the logo was designed by @ikrahch. She takes some wonderful photographs herself, and other good information in her post.

I would like thank Alfat Qira @qira for the post yesterday https://steemit.com/familyprotection/@qira/lying-is-not-good-2c7f017808854 (and all the comments people left). I highly recommend you read this post. I have numerous comments because it has to do with what I have been going through, and some disappointment I have been experiencing. It will be leading me to handling a few things differently from here forward.

I do not like closing out a post on a down-note, so here are a couple of more photos from my flower garden:

·

Thank you.

When all the world appears to be in a tumult, and nature itself is feeling the assault of climate change, the seasons retain their essential rhythm. Yes, fall gives us a premonition of winter, but then, winter, will be forced to relent, once again, to the new beginnings of soft greens, longer light, and the sweet air of spring.

·

Thank you. Great words.

I personally appreciate all of your photography and at the top of your blog post I have enjoyed a lot and you have done quite a few flower photography which are very good for a lot of good resolution and look. 📷 📽

·

Thank you very much. I am still learning photography as I take more and more photographs.

Pleasant photos, I valued you, as a result of plants and blossoms so wonderful and pleasantly developing from garden,Other thing is so upbeat, bcz when the natural products roll in from the plant. Garden work is It invigorates the brain.

Thank you very much.

Sir, @r2cornell your photography shows that you are willing to live a happy and healthy life, it's so sad to hear about what had happened last year on 15th june but your strategy this summer is brilliant and most interesting part of your gardening is you are using trailer for moving your vegetable plants according to weather conditions. 😇
Many blessings on you and your family.

·

Thank you. I have more containers to plant, but only the one flat bed trailer. I am still thinking it out on how I will do the remainder of the containers.

Wow! So Amazing beauty of all these gardening photographs of flowers.
petunia is another different kind of flower i've seen. Fantabulous!!

·

Thank you for Sana. I appreciate it. The Petunia is grown a lot in the USA. It can handle the cooler weather in the Spring. Glad you enjoyed

·
·

Awesome

I'm become a fan of your macro photography cause I'm loving each of the image which you shared from last month to this one. I made logo for you because you deserve it and it was an honor for me too.

I love the yellow and purple macro shots in this post!! :)

·

Thank you very much @ikrahch! I always liked the yellow one growing wild in the fields...they look nice, but when using macro-photography it really brings out the detail of an exceptional flower.

I can never thank you enough for the logo!

Adab sir,
Thank you very much. Thank you so much for giving me a very nice picture. I like this picture. I am a photographer. I like the picture. I'd like to share some of my own pictures with you. @r2cornell

Spectacular. I love the brick wall behind the pretty flowers.

The way you have done photography, it has attracted me too much because it is very important to know about camera functions for your camera's choice and the best way to use the lens as you know every single piece of content on each camera, because each of your pictures It's very nice to have a And print out the images in resolutions of each image slice is striking that takes too much of your images when the display is excellently presented.
