A garden world


Through the summer, I spent time soaking up all the incredible diversity that lives within our garden.  Its winter now, and comparing the rich tapestry of life of summer to the crystal stillness of winter is almost impossible.  Here are some of my photos from the summer – many shot with macro extension tubes on the camera.  Shot with Nikon D5100 / 18-200mm with Extension Tubes.
