About two years ago Gav and I headed for a day out visiting a garden in North Yorkshire. After an hours drive we arrived and looked dumfounded at each other. We had been there before and forgotten we had. No matter we are National Trust members so entered the garden for free and enjoyed a revisit.
Four months after that it happened again. We turned up at a garden we’d seen before. Clearly some sort of record needed to be kept. Not just to stop us revisiting places, we often do that on purpose, but just so we know where we’ve been.
So I began to wade, and I mean wade, through folders of photos trying to pin down which garden was which. I made a few Photoshop templates for a title page, photos page and map of the garden location and had every intention of making a scrapbook album all about the Gardens we have visited.
I spent perhaps three weekends editing and sorting photos and then I got truly bored with the process.
Fast forward to today. As part of my click tick list I want to photograph 100 gardens from this book. I wanted to keep going with the album idea and I thought it would be good to blog about all the gardens too.
So I am starting to do just that and as I write about our visits I’m going to add them here on the blog. I can use the writing within the physical album too.
So basically I hope you like reading about gardens as there are quite a few…….
