Todays post is about that very shy species, the gardener. I look at a lot of garden blogs from all around the world. What struck me yesterday was that the huge amount of photo's of plants, flowers, tree's, shrubs, Cats, a Hare eating a dandelion salad..
I know only two bloggers who actually have displayed photos of themselves.Step forward Trey
and Angela from Northern California.
Every other one has other pictures within the profile box but not face pics.Im dying to see what people look like.
Do you visualise a gardener from their photos, choice of plants, and their hands (which come into shot sometimes to hold up a flower say at a better angle)?
I do try to imagine them.
Then there are those who photograph themselves from the back so you can see either a hat, or their hair..
Step forward Sigrun (queen of the obscured pic of mr Wanderful, and i know she has dark hair from behind)
And today Old roses, first time in front of the Camera.She has a cool hat though..
Why do gardeners photograph everything in the garden, and visit other gardens for inspiration but never get a photo of them by a prize plant or border..?
You have to be brave to put your photos and prose up with some of the outstanding gardens and blogs that are online currently.
Do you all feel shy about showing yourself to the world?
I worry about putting my picture on the blog.I have done it twice that i remember in 18 months. Are gardeners shrinking violets when it comes to displaying their faces?
The question is why do gardeners not get photographed themselves in the garden, getting a better half to photograph them. Has anyone got there photo on a recent post from the front view?
