And a very good morning to you and your pets,
I get a smashing welcome every morning from four little pets who once must have hated every day when they we’re all ill treated,
But when i open the stable door and they all pile out it’s worth a million pounds to know tomorrow will be a repeat of todays welcome,
Weather here has started off nice and it’s forcast sun later
so thats something to look forward to,
Im hoping for a full “stay at home” gardening day today
Ive no plans to be going outside the gates (except for walkies with these 16 paws bearing mutts)
I was thinking about how gardening has changed and some of the kit we now use,like cameras, and mobile phones to take pictures of our garden’s,
It’s a bit like people always want the quick way out,
I mean taking a picture now and sending it to somone is via the inter-net and all done in minutes,
When did you get down to writing a letter to your family or friends with pen & paper, and then going to the post box to post it?
Whats happend to people who cant string a few words together to say “hello”, ?
Everyone seems to be walking around with a mobile glued to their ear’s pretending to have some fantastic chat!
But we all know half of these people we see in the rush hour trip to work along the pavement phone stuck in ear are not really talking to anyone, they didnt learn how to communicate and so the moble is like a stick the person who cant stand up on his own two feet needs, (a mobile crutch)
Ive seen people pretentending to have these wonderful chats and then when the very phone they’re using starts to ring in mid chat & laughter !!!!!
They feel the fool they are looking. " Sad but oh so true.
This has all come about due to me being in my workshop yesterday and having a coffee with my friend john, as we sat near the desk ive got in the workshop i opened a deep drawer and there i found my camera case with a camera i bought years ago along with verious lens etc,
It made me think of using it again to keep a record of todays life as we know it " a record before things change never to be the same again.
The inter-net cameras are all well and fine and are proberly better than a lot of home camera shots, but ive the camera and im thinking of using it again to capture some of todays scenes, not just the garden but the dogs and “she who must be obeyed”,
I think the shots when your subject isnt expecting it are the best ones?
Yes these days gardening has taken on a complete knew meaning when it comes to how we do things and the quicker ways of doing them,
Pity weeding has’nt come along these lines “but” we must’nt kill the gardening efforts by inventing the perfect looking garden at the turn of a switch or the drop of some chemicle and all turns out perfect
“it just wouldnt be gardening”
And with that note i’ll say have a better day than you did yesterday,
Get the old camera out and see who you can surprise by just pointing it (no film inside) at them and say “CHEESE” i bet they smile.
Have a nice day in your garden.
