Capturing the beauty of green living in my Healing Garden - Radix Talini Paniculati (土人参)

"People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us".
~ Iris Murdoch

I don't know those small tiny plants/herbs (some with flowers) in my garden are so beautiful, till I look into my photographs!

I started to take photos for my plants and herbs since I got my new camera. Even I have not started my photography classes yet till now. Thus, I'm lazy to read on this subject as I've lot more important subjects to focus on. So, my hubby just gave me very brief explanation so that I can start working on my 'project' :P.

Best of all, my plants are absolutely love to pose for the camera! Since then, they blooming beautifully and make me can't stop capturing as much as their photos to see them growing each day! I just love and wish to capture that beauty in my photographs. It look great and elegance while the sun arise in the morning.
