Who is reigning over your garden this spring?
A Christmas gift of Hippeastrum first flowered with six blooms, now on its second flourish with five blooms.
Plants can provide not only pleasure, also optimism with a feeling of wellbeing, very welcome during the dark days of January.
What is giving you joy in your gardening world?
Welcome to brimfields.com, thank you for visiting.
This is my new blog covering two interests in The Life of Brian, photography and gardening.
I recently started to develop a blog about my photography alongside my other blog Our Garden@19, which I first published two years ago. These two have now been merged into brimfields.com
The pages, Photography and Gardening, explain more about these interests and my level of “Expertise”.
Photography has always interested me (I think it was the lifestyle of Patrick Lichfield that appealed to me!) I began to develop my interest in visiting gardens as a member of the Black Pear Gardening Club and privately. These visits provide pictures I can use on the club website, my original blog Our Garden@19 and in my gardening presentations.
In this I have received great encouragement from the gardening club’s Webmaster, Douglas Gregor, who is an excellent wildlife photograph. Please visit his website Here
This is one of my favourite photographs, posted in Raindrops under Plant life.
I have always gardened to some extent. When growing up, my parents and Grandparents, who lived next door, both had a large traditional garden with vegetables, flowers, orchard, chickens and bees. From an early age my brother and I were given a small plot to look after and I still remember my pleasure when my nasturtiums, covered with flowers, spread every where.
My family are the most important feature in The Life of Brian. Irene and I have two daughters and two granddaughters. You can read more about them in the Garden page under The Garden Team.
The birds that visit our garden provide an extra source of pleasure and if you are lucky a photographic opportunity. This is my favourite wildlife picture so far, posted in feeding time under wildlife.
I hope you enjoy reading brimfields.com please leave comments, one of the joys of blogging is the communication with fellow bloggers. I will reply as soon as I can.
