An Ending and A Beginning

I can’t believe that it is September already. The entire summer has gone by and I haven’t written a thing. At least not here. I haven’t done much gardening either but that’s another topic. I have, though, been practicing with my new camera.

I tried to write gardening posts, but the screen remained stubbornly blank. The cursor blinked at me, mesmerizing me. Scrolling through my pictures did not result in any inspiration. Cataloguing each new blossom seemed tedious. Blogging about my garden had become a chore; something I no longer enjoyed.

It is time to move on. I considered keeping this blog, just moving it in a new direction, but that also seemed too difficult. Too many changes would have to be made. Too many explanations would have to be given. And I like this blog as it is or was. It served an important purpose in my life.

In the end, I decided on a fresh start. I’ve created a new blog, A Photographer’s Garden that incorporates more of my photography and allows me to go off-topic, something that I never felt comfortable doing here. The new blog is not a garden blog. It’s not a photography blog. It’s not a personal diary. Rather, it is a combination of all three.

I hope that you will join me over at A Photographer’s Garden.
