By Season

Many of us travel to exotic locales for picturesque sceneries, but beauty can be found a step away (or just a few miles away) - if only we took the time to stop and look. Most of the photographs on this site were taken in the photographer’s garden or within a short distance of her home. We share with you pictures fresh from the garden (or the woods or the fields), capturing the moment, time fleeing, rain droplets being dried by a breeze, a leaf just before a gust of wind blows it away, buds on the cusp of opening…  a mere moment in time... soon to be gone.

Because people tend to write less than in the past, a hand-written note is cherished by its recipients. Laughing Duck Gardens notecards make your message even more special.

The thumbnail of the card boxes below give you an idea of pre-made boxes what we offer. 10 cards and matching envelops in each box (5 different pictures, 2 of each): $20 + tax (shipping, if any, is additional). We can also make a custom box for you.
