Here's a time lapse of my basil getting unwilted. It's rather relaxing to watch.

I have always found gardening peaceful.Though I am still a bit of a novice in the area I actually enjoy gardening more at home rather than doing it outside this could be because I don’t have a good sized backyard.I recently found a blog online from rbc clean that mentioned some tips on how to properly maintain indoor plants (You are not allowed to view links.

I garden outdoors, but indoors too.  I grow fancy lettuce inside all Winter.  Nice additions to the daily salad.  I have a 4 shelf stand that sits by the south-facing deck door.  I think I will dig up a few bell pepper plants this year and see if I can get anything from them.  They are naturally perennials.

My roof garden is shaping up for the summer.
Will plant 3 rose bushes next week.
The weather has turned cold and rainy again.

Youactually have a red-leaved japanese maple in a container?  I'm slightly-to-very in awe.  Whta do you do with it in Winter?  Or does is survive outside where you are?  I'm considering one.

I have 4 acers in pots for many years.
No problem with winters, it is in a sheltered place, not much frost.
So far so good.

We do not get hard prolonged frosts here. Snow for a few days, maybe every 10 years.
I live in the South of England, and we have the gulf stream to moderate the weather.


Hobbies: Photography, gardening, computers/technology, reading, music, cooking and long walks.

I have a photo album of my patio every year. Enjoy.

Utterly impressive!  Those are all spectacular and great pics too.  I don't have a good collection of pics, but you can get a good idea from this one post on my cat-blog from last year...  You are not allowed to view links.

Nice kitties. I am sure they are lots of fun, not to mention the good company.

Here is a rose I planted yesterday. Arthur Bell
The photo was taken some years back but lost it. This is a replacement.

Must admit, I never saw one.  Very pretty.

Not to overlook your great flowers in the least bit, but what kind of camera are you using.  My good digital camera  on a tripod at macro setting won't take pics like THOSE!

@ Cavebear

Canon 7D with a Canon 60mm macro lens which I have sold since with all the lenses and accessories.
All I have now is a Canon G7X and the Oneplus 5T cellphone. Still making good photos.
Not forgetting Photoshop and Lightroom.

I gave up on serious cameras when I discovered that f stops made as much sense to me as E=Mc sq.

I get good enough pics for my blogs with a Canon Powershot ELPH 1130 IS (and that was a step back from a previous camera that was harder to manage)  But it takes pretty good pictures...
