Ok I'll go first

We have daffodils, tulips, roses, a lilac tree, azaelea bush, impatients, double impatients, marigolds, sweet williams and peonies. A whole bunch of cilantro somewhere. It's good because they bloom at different times! Here's whats in bloom now.

I have absolutely no idea about gardening and neither am I interested Tongue
We don't have a garden in Hyderabad, all the open space is done with stone tiles.
We didn't have a garden till a very long time in Jeddah either, but a few years back my dad & stepmom started growing one. It's usually daddy dearest who does all the work. I've attached pics and except for the roses, I have no clue what kind of flowers they are Smiley

Asalaamu Alaikum bro

Doesn't mowing the lawn also count as gardening or is that not considered green thumbed (or green fingered) enough? Wink


But continuing on the horticultural theme, here's a link to the 'Libya' garden which won at the Chelsea Flower Show this year!!

Salam alaikum

Awesome flowers and plants, mashaAllah!!!  Our garden just succumbed to the cold, unfortunately, the roses are dying and the grass is going brownish... they lasted long though, mashaAllah, as winter came early this year, and they may have been holding out for a last bit of summer.

Will post our pics in spring (thats autumn and fall where you guys are)...am I the only person here in the southern hemisphere?? madinaflag

Ws,

iA after you start working you can save up and buy a Canon! Check out the different kinds and diff lenses. Also sometimes real photographers like to sell their old one's and old lenses bc the technology changes so quickly! so maybe you can find some kind of photographers hobbyists circle in ur area and check it out. also get a book on basic photography stuff, like about techniques, angles, colors or take a class, it's a lot of fun and u don't need an SLR to try out all that stuff!
