doodle by andre: caught in the act

photographic_evidenceBRINGING NEW MEANING TO THE PHASE ‘HOMELAND SECURITY,’ right? You all may not know that in his former life, Andre the Doodler was a photographer, and garden photos were his specialty. Like these:

Click on the first thumbnail to start the show, and toggle from slide to slide by using the arrows. Note: You may have to scroll to find the arrows below the verticals, in particular. Enjoy.

What are all these images, and where did they come from suddenly? My beloved Nebraskan-English-Transplant correspondent explains (imagine this with an accent if you can):

“My mum has begun to send me cds of all the pictures I have taken–so much of that stuff I had to leave behind [in England]. Anyway, a few garden pictures are coming over and so I thought you might like to see the old English garden tools I used to photograph. Am just sorting them now so will send you more pics as and when they arrive.”

We cannot wait, Andre. (I see there are already some here, at your old photo site.) I especially love seeing that you and I, of course, were separated at birth (which I always suspected): Putting green and red together, and not just at Christmas, is our “thing.” Wonderful. (Just like the photo of Andre and Pickle stealing a recent nap, below, presumably shot by the delightful Mrs. Andre.)

    Oh, sweet dreams of gardening, Andre and Pickle! The photos are lovely. I did wonder if perhaps Andre had been “Away to Garden” at Margaret’s — I’m sure he could find very similar subjects at your place!

    1. Margaret says:

      @Andre: And we all love you (and Pickle and Mrs. Andre). xoxoxoxoxoxoxooxoxox ad infinitum.

      Welcome, Michelle. Glad that Andre got you to say hello formally, and hope you will chime in again soon. :)

    I know that feeling, Andre. I sometimes wonder what people think when I’m examining their yard because something caught my eye. I’d like to take pictures of a certain gate I pass when I walk the dog, but am not sure that’s appropriate.

    It’s even worse when my husband starts looking in peoples’ windows to see their art work (he’s an art and antique appraiser).

    What a joy to find this after coming in from an afternoon of miscellaneous chores, tasks, what have you. The photos are great – sure do envy that nap time, too.
