I don’t know if it’s being a new homeowner, but my eyes are a little more open to the flowers blooming and plants growing around here right now. I always hated yards and yard work growing up. My grass and pollen allergies didn’t agree with me and the raging Florida sun/heat/humidity triple threat was a real deterrent.
As I’ve got older, I’ve grown to like gardening a bit more. There’s something satisfying in knowing I made my house look little nicer. I do wish the entire lawn was xeriscaped, though, and I’m not sure how it will look after our first summer.
I mentioned to my mom how beautiful all of the blooming camellias look right now and she brought us one back from our town’s big plant and garden show that we missed. Ours will have pink blooms, not those crimson red ones that are below there. It’ll take years to grow to a good size. It’ll be fun to see it grow with us here at our house.
I swear I’m not turning into a flower photographer. This 50mm March is pushing me to find something interesting to shoot every day and this is what’s around me right now.
