Our Best Garden Photos of 2018
November 3, 2018

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 our first pumpkin to ripen.

I do turn the camera for vertical shots sometimes.

And then there are those dandy galvanized buckets my sweetie bought me that keep filling up with good stuff.

Photo Gear

I haven't changed any of our photo gear recently, so I'll just provide a link to that information for those who might be interested in what I use.

Not as Many Shots

This year's best photos page has a lot less shots, and I think the quality of them is not really all that great. I tore up my knees early in the season and ended up taking a lot less pictures than usual.
