Camera Corner

Posted: 03/11/2013 at 13:59

I was looking for a quote for the 'silly quotes' thread when I came across this one and thought it suited 'camera corner' quite nicely....

*It pleases me to take amateur photographs of my garden, and it pleases my garden to make my photographs look professional.*

BL its a nice surprise to see a new flower so late, hope it is winter flowering.
SS im a puttererofferer as well.
Not had the garden day I thought, put off by rain, put off by cold put off by lethargy, but sun out now and lots of leaves on the front drive to collect for leaf mould.even put off because I need to get changed! Ok I'll get a grip!

I put the washing on the line a few times in the summer to make it rain so I'd not have to water the garden.

Sorry, Im now resorting to copy and paste after googling, but some fab garden quotes out there...

My green thumb came only as a result of the mistakes I made while learning to see things from the plant's point of view. 

God made rainy days so gardeners could get the housework done. 

When one of my plants dies, I die a little inside, too. 

Don't wear perfume in the garden - unless you want to be pollinated by bees.

Oh my word....just had a walk round the garden. I got 3 jasmine cuttings from a house / plant sale in the spring. They were only labellled as yellow jasmine. Put them in 3 different places and one is now in flower! So any ideas , is it a summer jasmine going overboard or a winter jasmine (thought winter ones were white)???
