Winter...A Time for Rest

I'm teaching at the Southern Gardening Symposium at Callaway Gardens this weekend. Yesterday, I was out scouting potential shooting locations. It was a peaceful day in the garden--overcast, quiet, still. Thanks to the hard freezes we've had recently, there weren't any vegetables growing in Mr. Cason's Vegetable Garden, but I enjoyed my visit in that part of the garden anyhow. It felt more like a working farm, and the way a farm should feel in winter. And that suited me just fine.

Only a Few Days Left to Register for Callaway Gardens Workshop

As part of the Southern Gardening Symposium at Callaway Gardens, I'll be teaching a half-day Garden Photography Workshop on Friday, January 29. Even in winter, Callaway Gardens is a magical place. In fact, winter is among my favorite times to photograph landscapes and gardens--quiet scenes, compelling texture, interesting seedpods, and the role evergreens play in the garden. We'll spend some time in the Conservatory photographing a variety of dramatic plants as well. Class size is limited and was filling quickly, so register soon if you're interested. I'll also be giving a presentation on Water Gardens on Sunday morning as part of the symposium. Other speakers for the January 29-31 symposium include Erica Glasener, Pam Baggett, Pamela Crawford, William Cureton, George Sanko, Dr. Mark Windham and June Mays.
