Our Best Garden Photos of 2012

I love gardening, and I also love taking pictures. Publishing Senior Gardening allows me to combine both avocations. Most of the photos below have appeared somewhere on Senior Gardening during the last year.

My favorite photo of the year turned out to be some tiny petunias growing in egg cartons on a kitchen windowsill, just like my mother used to do it.

I do turn the camera for vertical shots sometimes.

Here's a couple of shots of our cover/soil improvement crops in the east garden. At left is a large planting of buckwheat with zinnias behind it. At right is some alfalfa that did just so-so.

Something a Little Different

I put this page together in 2019! Having done "best photo" pages for 2013-2018, I decided to work a bit backwards and see what I came up with. Things started well, but somehow I forgot that 2012 was a year of drought. Even so, we got some nice photos along with some delicious vegetables in 2012.
