View from the bottom up
surrounded with plants, makes me enjoy creating and planting different corners of the garden, admiring scenes that are never the same twice. It’s never the same scenery, even though it’s with the same actors – plants :) What matters along with the plants is also the point of view, the way we look at them. This Sunday I took a look a little differently, from the bottom up.
Eschscholizia californica, commonly known as the California poppy, is a must-have in home gardening. It’s commonly found in flowerbeds, on border fronts, in containers, along paths.
It’s one of the flowers that especially attract my attention these days, since it has now begun to flower.
I planted them in the company of other plants on vegetable beds in my garden. With their gold-orange petals in June and July I’m not the only one to find them attractive – bees, too, are constant visitors on these sunny days:) I stop for a little while and take a look at them every day I pass by. Over this warm, sunny weekend I took some pictures of these beautiful yellow-, orange- and white-coloured glowing California poppies – with the thought that I’d share the selected one with you.
The same way I looked at them - I made photos of the poppy from three different perspectives, from the bottom up, from the side, and from upside down - I also try to look at daily challenges and opportunities from different perspectives, try to look at the beauty of nature from a wider viewing angle, as this allows different precious details to be seen. Try it - it can be really interesting, and you might just see something different, discover something more, something new.
Starting with some precious gardening experiences at home as a child and landscape architectural projects as a student, I’m looking forward to working on Urbanscape Green Solutions projects at Knauf Insulation with great co-workers. Can’t wait to blog more with you. Till then, have a nice summer :)!
