I was thinking would could all post pictures of some nature in our neighborhood, city, or even state. :p Whether you live in Iowa (like me), New York City, England, etc ... post 'em!

I'll be back in a bit with some of my firsts. Can't wait to see them all! :D

Very photos Brian! :D The bright bright read one with the water droplets on it is really good. Thanks for sharing.

I'm currently working in Photoshop to get some more photos (of nature) to post here. They should be ready by today. I'm crossing my fingers. :)

Thanks Ben, all these were taken in my own garden, and they manage to grow without any help from me.

Very nice. :cool: What kind of strange plant is in that second picture (http://i194.photobucket.com/albums/z245/brianaclift/Nature/js1024_Pictures_from_Canon_01080-2.jpg). :p

CMANDALA, more great pics. :)

Ben, the red flower is a Poppy. I don't know what variety it is as I didn't plant it or sow the seed.

It grew itself, probably from a seed taken by a bird from the nearby bird feeder and dropped there.

Oh wow. Very nice. You're lucky to have tropical-like plants like that in your garden. All we have here at my house are the traditional perennials. I've found myself making frequent trips to the park, due to the plants that are blooming right now, including this tree. (http://fc03.deviantart.com/fs28/i/2008/144/1/c/Bloom_by_thebenniest.jpg)

I really love this time of year.

Here are two I took recently. Fortunately, I found a day where it wasn't raining here. :confused:

Nice photos.
You who have gardens are so fortunate. When I was a child I did all my parents' gardening. Neighbors thought they had a pro service coming in, I was so good. So much color and texture. I'd get happy when they let me order bulbs each fall. They never had to buy produce all summer with me around, my tomatoes were a sight. I still have my green thumb, but now I can only use it on two window boxes.:(
One day I'll have a garden again.

We don't really do a lot of gardening here, although we have do have a big enough backyard to do it in. I might try doing some this summer before I head off to school in the fall.

I bet it would be hard to go from a big garden to 2 windows to set small pots on. :confused: Are there any community gardens near your apartment that you could set up?

Definitely not in midtown. Even in other neighborhoods the city has seen many of the community gardens cleared for development.

That's horrible. There needs to be some kind of gardens and green areas throughout New York City besides the parks that are scattered around.

Riverside Park. From 2007.

I did a search for (community) gardens in the Midtown area and, like you said MTG, there were slim to none.

Along with Brian's post, I found this (http://www.washingtonmarketpark.org/pages/garden.html). It's a community garden in Washington Market Park that offers 60 individual plots to community members. Although a little ways from where you are MTG, it's just something to think about. :)
