Our Best Garden Photos of 2022
November 2, 2022

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 some dill in bloom. Besides enjoying the lovely blooms, we save dill weed and seed.

All other use requires prior consent, massive royalty payments, your left pinkie finger...grin (Actually, I'm a pretty soft touch on non-commercial use of my photos, especially for educators. Just , please.)

This was another off year for our gardening. I blew out a shoulder early in the season, so our East Garden never got planted. I'm slowly mending 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.
