Have you ever considered #growing a cutting #garden? Here are my thoughts about mine. #flowers #flowerphotography
I used to read about cutting gardens in magazines, and while I was attracted to the idea, I felt overwhelmed at implementing it. Creating a cutting garden seemed difficult and out of reach. Maybe I had too many responsibilities like college, marriage and raising children. I could only manage a small garden back then, and that was [...]

#Wildflowers I grow in #Oklahoma to celebrate five years of Clay and Limestone's Wildflower Wednesday. 
In honor of the fifth anniversary of Gail Eichelberger’s Wildflower Wednesday meme, I want to share some of the wildflowers I grow in Oklahoma. Over the past five years, my garden has leaned closer and closer to a wildflower pollinator haven. Whenever I must remove a rose because of Rose Rosette Virus, I tend to plant a [...]

Just beautiful. Take me there.
 
Greenhouses, Tufford Road
    – (HDR)

I was on my way back from my printer (person, not machine) and noticed the sun and clouds on the horizon were likely to yield a very colourful sunset. Hence I took the back roads to pass a group of greenhouses I have been meaning to photography for a couple of years, but never got around to. I managed to find a place to park the car on Tufford Road (East of Beamsville, Ontario) and quickly set up. As luck would have it the sun was just in behind the greenhouses and the skies did light up as I had hoped. A few quick exposures and it was gone. You may notice that the right-most greenhouse is missing a significant amount of glass. The ones further left seem to have been given some necessary attention. And of course, the pond is what made it for me. Partly luck, partly scouting in advance, partly anticipating what would happen. - JW

Date Taken: 2014-12-10

Tech Details:

Taken using a tripod-mounted Nikon D7100 fitted with a Nikkor 18-105mm VR lense set to 24mm, ISO100, Aperture priority mode, f/8.0, three auto-bracketed exposures spaced at EV+/-2.0 around a base exposure of 1/40 sec. HDR processing was done in free Open Source Luminance/Qtpfsgui using the Fattal tone-mapping operator to emphasize colours, settings as indicated below. PP in free Open Source RAWTherapee: use the highlights/shadows controls to bring up the shadow areas slightly and also preserve the highlight detail in the brightest areas, boost black very slightly, apply noise reduction, sharpen. PP in free Open Source GIMP: make a small adjustment of the bottom 10% of the tone curve to darken only the darkest areas slightly, select the grassy area and boost the green saturation and brightness slightly, sharpen, add fine black and white frame, add bar and text on left, scale to 1800 wide for posting.

Amaryllis and other #bulbs grown indoors make great #holiday #gifts. I've already given away three of my four red pots this year. One young friend named the red 'Double King' #amaryllis I gave her from +Longfield Gardens 'Bing.' I hope Bing blooms for her right before #Christmas.
