As well as recording the loveliness of the garden the camera can be a very useful design tool.
Yesterdays photograph showed me that the narrow borders I was cutting around the front lawn look mean and pinched - I only realised it when I looked at the photograph. The camera is completely objective. Next time I cut I will make them twice the width of the mower.
I have in the past recommended photographing your garden in the snow for the way it shows up the form of everything - the contrasts between solid and lacy, between clipped and loose, between bold and delicate - variety and balance in these things make for all year interest. Unless you are reading this in the southern hemisphere you may have to wait a while to try this (though you never know!).
Apart from grass cutting, what would you say are the most time-consuming and labour intensive jobs in your garden?
Roll on summer!
