Castle Kennedy Gardens

Artists have their creative blocks, from which photographers are not exempt. After all the exciting times snapping wildlife in South Africa, scrambling up the Thukela Gorge, and striding out on the Drakensbergs, the humble pleasures of home life are insufficient to allay the ennui of quotidian existence. Simply put, I'm bored after adventures in foreign lands. However, I've been partly shaken out of this depression by the thoughtful words of my friend Deb-e-ann who said why not show some flowers like her! Indeed, I have been busy capturing some plants and trees at some Scottish locations in the interim, and here are a few from a visit to one of Scotland's most famous, if somewhat hidden, gems - Castle Kennedy Gardens, not far from the port of Stranraer in Dumfries and Galloway.
The Gardens are part of the Earl of Stair's estate, the present Earl, the 14th, is related to our Royal family; predecessors have served the country in major positi

It's my son's birthday today. Every year I ask him what he wants to do on this day that's the anniversary of The Most Important Day He and I Will Ever Share. He laughs and I laugh and then we plan to do something together. I tell myself, he laughs 'cause he knows I wouldn't actually guilt-trip him. At the same time, I recognize, it's a little more comfortable for both of us to not come over all mushy about “my little baby boy who’s all grown up now.”  So I say the words, which I actually believe in deeply, and I say it with a guilt-trippy delivery (no pun intended there), and I laugh. At least, that’s how I see it. He’s a member of DA, so he may read this and disagree. But I don’t *think* he’ll disagree.

This year we’re hiking through some conservation land to an area that has waterfalls. We’ve each heard about this place for a few years now, and just haven’t had the right conjunction of circumstances to go check it out. Being the mom that I am - and according to him, “your mom is always your mom, no matter how old you get” - I’ve got the environmentally-sound mosquito repellent and the bottled water.

For a present, I bought him a strandbeest model. If you don’t know strandbeests, your life is impoverished and you need to fix that immediately! Go to www.strandbeest.com and view the video. His won’t be that big, but it will be spectacular, all the same.

We’re taking our cameras, too. I don’t know what to expect in terms of potential photos. I know the area is wooded, and there’s always lots going on in the woods, and I always see stuff, mostly if I pay close attention on a micro level. I hope to come back with new images to share here.

Maybe at the end of the day, what we’ll have is simply the experience; the day and the strandbeest.

And of course, the anniversary of The Most Important Day He and I Will Ever Share.
