You know, this might be the earliest announcement for the Infomaniac Garden Photos Event ever published? If I could be arsed I'd do some research to check, but I can't, so you'll just have to go along with it. Unless you'd like to check for yourselves, of course?
Anyway, as I've treated myself to a day off work and have got shit all else to blog about, I have taken The Very Mistress's advice (command? order?) and come up with this primer for this year's Event, complete with photos of the pre-Spring blooms here at Hexenhäusli Device!
. . .
Oh, before we go any further, here's a musical accompaniment to your downward scrolling: The Procession of Celestial Beings, composed by Joe Hisaishi and performed by the New Japan Philharmonic World Dream Orchestra (from The Tale of Princess Kaguya - which I watched the other day).
. . .
Right. The Event. This year will be much like previous years in that I'd like you to send me photos of your green fingered & thumbed efforts - big or small, indoors or out, proletariat pansies or prize-winning passionflowers - in time for a grand show in November.
However, as well as the usual growths from this year (and some Terrifying Triffidery, of course) I'd also like you to send in one or two (or more) photos from your garden(s) of years past - a theme that came about thanks to some reminicences from Dinah. It would be great to see how your garden has changed over the years, or if you've moved house, what your previous garden(s) looked like and what you grew. For the old hands at this, if you can find something that hasn't featured in a Garden Photos Event before, even better! If you have any questions, thoughts or ideas, please leave them in the comments.
Anyway (again), here are the rest of the Hexenhäusli Device flowers:
. . .
I think that'll be it from me for February. See you in March!
