This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

valentine's day rose

a valentine rose

I have a hard tome photographing red and magenta with my camera. These Valentines roses were a real challenge. The petals are marbled, reminding me of old tulip varieties. I can't say the photo does the rose justice, but its my best attempt. Happy Valentine's Day!

I have yet to find a camera that can correctly photograph reds and oranges. This photo looks great though!

You did a great job photographing that rose. I also have the most trouble photographing reds and purples. I love the way light shines on the petals.

What breed is your dog?
