Our Best Garden Photos of 2021
November 20, 2021

I love gardening, and I also enjoy 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 a spring shot of apple blossoms. We didn't get any apples this year, but the blossoms were gorgeous.

This was sort of an off year for our gardening. Two days after taking the two images above, I fell off our porch head first. The fall did some pretty serious spinal damage, and my gardening was limited the rest of the season. I'm slowly on the mend and look forward to another full season of gardening next year.

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.
