Postcards: Spring Garden Flaneuring

Of the four seasons, I think I like spring the best.  Perhaps more so this year as Calgary had such a long, long winter.  I love spring because of the intensity of the colour - the flowers are almost  almost neon-like.  They are also very sensuous. 

Given that spring ended this past week I thought I would share with you some postcards from my almost daily flaneuring of my garden and others.

More Than Just Flowers

  Backstory: This and the next photo are from the backyard of an architect friend in Saskatoon. I am so jealous of his man cave.  Since I could never have my own garden pavilion, I got him to take me to his birdhouse maker so I could get one of the birdhouses.  I loved them so much I got two.

  I love our front yard birdhouse.  We even have chickadees nesting in it this year.

Last Word

I couldn't help but play with hybridizing some of the photos with the Union App to create the follow photo collage artworks.  Hope you have enjoyed the show.  

Send me your garden photos - I'd love to see them.
