A year in the gardens, Introduction


There are gardens all around my house where I live. I love walking around them and finding what is now growing.

Certaines périodes de l’année n’ont pas de fleurs dans les jardins mais il y a toujours des plantes qui sont intéressantes à regarder, à peindre et photographier.

I feel that there is magic in the growing plants. Like my father always told us when the first plants started appearing in the Spring, `the magic is happening again`. But to really appreciate it, you have to have our 4 seasons. 

Et il faut aller marcher dans les jardins, dans les sentiers, dans les quartiers.

I present to you what for me this year enchanted me, one month at a time.
