My Garden in Macro

The only limit to your garden is at the boundaries of your imagination. ~ Thomas Church

If you knew me, you would never trust me with your plants. Despite my efforts, many plants have died under my tender care–even the heartiest of succulents have come to their premature death under my watch. I just don’t have a green thumb.

My husband on the other hand is a superlative gardener. He is hands-down a far better plant whisperer than I can ever dream of becoming. Under his care, our modest little garden has flourished.

Our garden is a mish-mosh of perennials, herbs, vegetables and small variety of fruits that thrive in Waimea’s cool temperate climate. We keep it simple, basic and as low maintenance as possible – especially with my gardening handicap. Our long term goal is to cultivate a thriving edible garden. I’m sure that with a little coaching from my husband and more playtime in the dirt, our lofty dream will surely sprout delicious grub.

For the time being, I’ll stick to what I’m good at–weeding and photographing the makings of our dream garden.

    Such Beautiful pictures you may have an eye of a professional photographer it might be time to rethink a career change perhaps if you are not already a photographer. Asides from your pictures who doesn’t like a home grown garden? I someday may grow some fresh herbs of my own, Both Healthy and rewarding to see your fruits of labor. Keep up the good work and I enjoy reading all the post on Aloha

    • Mahalo BRODRUEZ! Really appreciate your kind words and support. Photography is one of many hobbies I enjoy. I’d like to say that gardening is another, but we all know now that I lack the “green” charm. Credit for our modest garden goes to my partner (aka the plant whisperer) and of course mother nature.
