Colorful vegetable garden harvest

Our vegetable gardens can feed not only our bodies, but our souls, too. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of walking out to your garden right before dinner to harvest the ingredients that will be featured on your plate that very evening. Feeding our families delicious food is a big part of the gardening experience.

But, what about the more intangible benefits of gardening? If we let them, they can be so much more than a place to grow our own food. Our gardens can also serve a bigger purpose of feeding our spiritual, emotional, physical, artistic and creative selves. They can be places where we find a beauty that touches us on a deeper level and sparks a feeling of joy that can only be found through nature.

My own garden brings more meaning, beauty and purpose into my life in ways that go beyond the food I grow. In the last few years I’ve been practicing the art of garden photography as a way to immerse myself in the beauty of my garden instead of always looking at it from the perspective of what tasks need to be accomplished. Playing with my camera is pure pleasure! I often sneak out to my yard with my camera early in the morning to catch the sun caressing my garden in its flattering light.

Looking through my camera lens is all about searching for the best of what my garden has to offer – vibrant colors, striking combinations of texture and form, dainty insects, and colorful harvests.

As this season comes to a close, I thought it would be fun to share some of my photos with you and see which ones speak to you and your own sense of beauty and wonder.
