The brief:  capture our theme, connect, through your lens.

Connection is such a lovely thing on the internet and I just want to hijack this lesson to say a big thank you to all the people who follow along with all my gardening antics.  To non gardeners like Hubby the Un-Gardener, it is just white noise in a crowded space.  Although I still can’t comprehend that there are people out there who actually hate gardening – I know!  Shock Horror!  But it’s ok, I have now reconciled myself to this and can move on.

To those of you who get it and know what it means when you find your favourite potted tomato is now contorted and broken in three places thanks to a fall from a shelf, and can share in the bereft feelings of utter disappointment, (it happened today!)  I really appreciate you and your comments of support.

Seasons change, but a gardeners green thumb is always itchy.  So to those of you in the north who are expecting snow, maybe I bring you some sunshine in exchange for those sunny days I borrowed from you over the last few months.  And for my fellow southerners lets swap tales of zucchini gluts and too many tomatoes.  Sharing is caring.

    1. Hi Julie. Exactly! I can fully sympathize with you over that one. I hope there was time to grow more. I had to go out and buy a new tomato as it was supposed to be a prop for a stall I am having this weekend at a garden ramble and Christmas market to sell my books, and I’d given away all my spares the day before! The staff at the garden centre teased me about buying tomato plants.
      Cheers Sarah : o )

  1. I sent the tent city post I wrote yesterday to my spiritual community and considered that action as meeting the Photography 101: Connect assignment. Reading and seeing this post from you reminded me of a photo I have that would be right on for this assignment. Thanks!!!

  2. Oh BUGGER on the tomato plant :(. My suggestion…throw it in the compost heap ;). Seriously though, I love that image. It perfectly describes the communion within the gardening confraternity. You can be walking along and see someone bums up in their garden and lean over the wall and say “I love your “X” ” and before you know it you are walking away with cuttings of “X”, a box full of seeds and seed pods and 6 hours has disappeared and you just made a new friend. Gardening does that to people. It levels them out and once you recognise the inner gardener in someone, you can bypass all of that social stuff and head straight to that addiction and know, within an inch of your life, that this person “gets” you 🙂

  3. Your photo of the pea tendrils reminds me of my cucumbers hanging onto the window handles this summer. Looking at them behaving in this way brought home the fact that plants really are alive.

  4. I’m growing peas too! I just wanted to drop a comment and let you know that I think your pea tendril photos are really beautiful and I can’t wait to see more!
