Marie has created a wonderful garden of flowers and food at our home in Thunder Bay, Ontario. I primarily photograph wild plants, animals and the landscapes they inhabit but since Marie has created a garden I have become interested in photographing domestic plants. Since wild flowers have evolved to attract pollinators, they are alluring to bees, flowers, flies, butterflies and other small creatures that have senses very different from ours. Fortunately, most of them also look attractive to us. Domestic flowers, on the other hand, are designed to be appealing to humans and consequently tend to be both big – some are huge – and many are intensely and strikingly coloured.
