More from Amy's Garden, Bartlett Pond, White Horse Beach, Manomet, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA



It is difficult to capture the width and breadth of Amy's Garden. This image is an attempt using the Photoshop Elements Photomerge panorama tool in post-processing by stitching two images together. The detail is sharper than using the built-in panorama function in the camera but, frankly, for blog purposes since most readers view it on a smartphone, the difference is minimal - click to view full width if your device supports that action. Regardless, no image captures the full beauty and grandeur of standing here.

The blue thistle is starting to blossom into its classic fireworks explosion appearance.......



....... I'll have another post about this beautiful wonder in a few more days.  This image captures less depth of field than the previous one so the distant background is blurred more. I couldn't decide which of the two I liked better so, I included them both - you decide.



It is hard to beat a warm summer evening in New England in Amy's Garden on Bartlett Pond.

Amy's Garden, Bartlett Pond, White Horse Beach, Manomet, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA



I am not a gardener - but Amy is - wow, is she ever! For seventeen years she has toiled and trimmed, dug and planted, slowly but surely shaped this patch of land to yield maximum beauty. Now, for the brief time at the peak of a New England summer, she gets to enjoy and share the visual bounty of her efforts. Her vision, hard work, coupled with water and sunshine has wrought such staggering beauty from the earth.

I say my blog mission/goal is a "photoblog about beautiful and/or interesting sights in our world - some close by, some far away." No sight more beautiful than right here at home - in Amy's Garden.

The images speak for themselves.........























































Life is good on Bartlett Pond in Amy's Garden!
