Gardens are not made by singing “Oh how beautiful!” and sitting in the shade. ~ Rudyard Kipling
This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge was “In The Background“. Although I think the idea was more oneself as a reflection — and part of me is definitely front & center in this photo — this is still my contribution to the challenge. When the garden is planted and in bloom, the gardener will be in the background. The blooms will be the stars of the show! Think of this as a visual synecdoche; my gloves and soiled gardening clothes representing all of me.
