Lens-Artists PC: Garden through seasons

This is my family’s garden in Ljubljana in as many seasons as I have witnessed since moving away.

It’s been five years since and even though I return as much as I can, it’s usually only summer or winter. This year I’ve added October and November to the mix.

In my previous bedroom, just a few houses down the street from this garden, I had four photos of the same tree in four seasons on the wall. This is the closest I can some to that.

You will notice that spring, or better entire months of February, March, April and May, are missing. Next year we need to fix that, at least in part. You never know when seasons could be taken away from us and how we will miss them.

The first gallery contains images taken from the same window. You’ll keep seeing a bunny.

And here is the window from which these were taken and some additional seasonal photos. The bunny was a gift to my mother from her cousin, the same whose painting the card tournament winner took home two years ago.

If you enjoy such a seasonal drive-by, here are four previous ones from Tuscany:

  1. Can’t believe that snow came and went so quickly!

    I like the silhouette of the tree in January light. I like to look up at trees as I walk past and see what patterns the branches and leaves make against the sky. It can be as wondrous as cloud-gazing or star-gazing!

    1. Oh yes, Pistachios, I like to gaze up trees too. Not much else to do around here, really. 😀 We can have much more snow in Ljubljana, but that time it was only falling for a little while and not much of it fell.

  2. What a wonderful study of the tree with different focal lengths and seasons through your old bedroom window!
    This was a photography lesson in one of my classes many years ago. One focal, one tree through the seasons to get to know how your camera sees. I have many images of the Gingko in front of my house, but they are not nearly as pretty or storytelling as your compositions. So, they remain out of sight, and unpublished.
    This is why you’re far more the better photographer than I will ever be!

    I loved the winter images and the one through the blinds. Great stories!

    1. Ohh, Deborah, I’d love to see your Gingko!! I’m sure it’s interesting to see the passage of time with it as the main star. Thank you for your kind words but I think you are exaggerating. 🙂 I’m glad you see stories in my images, though. ❤ Be well and happy!


    1. Hehe, Norm, the bunny is quite big in comparison but I’m sure they would settle the differences. 😀 I didn’t think to mention it but can it be that the focal tree is a Canadian maple? I think I can see your flag emblems hanging off it. 😉
