This is Jim’s Garden. Home of Stone Bunny, Gloriosa Daisy and all their friends.
This site is the story of one small piece of the Earth – specifically a 2.7 acre (1 hectare ) plot near the 40th parallel of latitude in central Indiana, U.S.A. It is one garden, changing all the time. Our goal is to watch it progress through the year, capture some lovely imagery, and have fun.
The story is told in real time. Various narrative tools may be employed, at the author’s whim. Simple, happy verse is a favorite, though the plants and garden statues are prone to speak up as well.
All photographs are taken from within the bounds of the property, unless noted otherwise. The blog would probably be really cool if it showed pictures of lions tackling zebras and such, but we don’t experience that kind of thing around here so we don’t show pictures of it. Squirrels robbing a bird feeder or woodland flowers blooming in the Spring – that’s our idea of cool and exciting In Jim’s Garden. Of course there are those highly competitive, wildly dramatic flowering plants. Talk about exciting.
Come, watch a special piece of ground change with the seasons.
Photographs are taken either with a Canon T3i camera, usually in manual setting, or a Sony Cybershot, usually in full-auto setting. Cropping and ocassional light control may be performed in Photoshop.
Thanks for visiting.
