"While I am up here", I thought, "I might as well take some wide shots. Just in case." "For the meme!".
So I did. Then I went out front and took more wide shots there. Like so.
|These wide views don't allow much appreciation of new plants recently placed (due to scale) but next year! Next year I'll be happy to point out new blooms in the mix.|
One of the results of editing wide shots was a renewed resolve on my part to get out and weed more. I have no excuse not to at the moment. The path and bed weeds are all taking full advantage of my laziness. Raking those pecan leaves off the front curb and putting them in the compost would be doubly beneficial.
Yup. As October closes out and plants begin to go dormant, these wide shots remind me it is time to do a little less appreciating and a little more maintenance.
While I'm temporarily using a narrowed frame, let's hear it for passalong plants, and natives to boot. Tina of My Gardener Says is the source for these welcomed natives. (Thank you, Tina!) Hopefully as time goes by, I'll have my own extras to share. Out front? Yarrow!
In this instance passalong plants are acting as a "favorites" cognate. As in, "my favorite kind of beer is cold and free, not necessarily in that order". Out back?
Shared plants are part of the repertoire in nearly every bed. Pavonia! More skullcap! Maybe a goldeneye?!
Here we go, back to the wideness for one last shot. Bidding a fond farewell to The Hub's Plethora of Potted Plumeria.
And there you have it. This post, digression and all, is my end of October - beginning of November contribution to Heather at Xericstyle's monthly wide shot meme. Hope you'll join in and share your very own wide views of the places you care for.
