garden tripod A Redbubble Country Gardens come grow with us Group Members Magazine Welcome to our 13th edition of the Garden Tripod. Gosh .. we are now a teenager .. how time can fly ! Our editions seem to be getting bigger by the month and to top this we have announced the news of our shiny new calendar that will go on sale next month. Continuing from last month we are still showing text in the raw, as it has been written, rather than trimming and tidying. We felt we was loosing contact with the person. So spelling mistakes and grammatical errors are now included for free, and we meet the real people, unpolished, unaltered. Some of the awesome selection of images for you this month are including gardens at dusk challenge and the spotlight of last months Regal blue challenge winner Jeffrey Van Daele Our office temp has been looking round a botanical garden Also we have teamed up with The Book Group to spotlight the challenge winner Andrew Coogan. A look at awesome Fractal images by by Ross Hilbert, who also explains the working of these creations. Then we have Moons, Rainbows and lots of wonderful pictures of white flowers Also an appeal from your editor on a new project idea, see next page for details ..

Project Just a few days ago I was looking at the street view in a well known map web site, when I found I wandered off down a road that I knew very well from my past.. Walking down the virtual street it was amazing to see buildings and open greens that I used to walk so often quite a few years ago. Then I virtual walked past a house of what was once a very good friend and horticultural work mate. He had passed away some years ago and his home was now lived in by strangers to me. Looking forward to seeing how his amazing garden has grown from when he left. It used to be full of dahlia plants that he grew and exhibited. Some being recognized by the RHS. From the street view his garden could be clearly be seen … A neat lawn .. Not a plant in sight .. To say I was disappointed is an understatement … So tapping the screen of the iPad I moved down the same road to another friends house also a horticultural work mate and keen exhibitor .. He left this world about the same time as the first chap .. His garden was full of strange plants for the area.. The garden resembled a small jungle with many layers of different plants and a wonderful greenhouse full of cacti. I must admit I cried, the garden was completely covered over in concrete … A car was on the once lush planting and a circular washing line in the middle of what was the jungle of loved foliage. I still feel a great sense of loss remembering these two friends and their gardens.. (Photo’s in next column) There is no record of the gardens as they were.. It’s been erased from all but memories.

So I have a project for you all, I do hope that some of you are able to take up this challenge .. It will be put together into a book if we get enough of you all doing this… Your challenge is to record your garden or a friends garden, with their permission .. Photographing,documenting, and listing all in the garden. Drawing a ground plan and marking where the plants are growing. You will be recording a little bit of history, making the garden immortal with the photographs and the records you have made. Then if in the future .. Some one who used to know the garden as it is now can look back and revisit it. The questions they may have will be answered within the notes you have made. If I could go back in time and record these two garden I would do it in a heart beat … But I can record the garden I have now .. Do please join me in this project… It will make an awesome snapshot of time for a book.. And a great article for inclusion in the garden tripod magazine.. email to .. gardentripod@yahoo.com Stay Safe Agen the Editor and Founder of Garden Tripod Princess Summer the Office News Hound

A little word from our

Office News Hound Hi Folks .. I am officially the office dog for the Garden Tripod Magazine. This month the magazine has no parties, no candles to blow or bark out .. but it has a fantastic selection of images to show you. Also letting you into a little secret .. behind the Garden Tripod we have getting ready to launch our first Official Garden Tripod Calendars .. Think there will be two or three to choose from and they are amazing. They should be available via Red Bubble and all the profits made go back to the artists that appear in them. in the form of redbubble vouchers. I have picked Jacaranda by PollyBrown as my fav image this month. Gosh how wonderful it must be to wonder in all those petals. They match the colour of my fancy walking harness I have to wear to stop me hurting my neck when bouncing off to say hi to all the birds, butterflies, and anything else that moves when I am out walking on my lead. (need the lead attached to my owner just incase she wanders off and gets lost in the woods or runs out in the road. As I am a princess I would never do anything like that myself, would I !!!!)

Botanical Gardens

With your vacation at your doorstep you will all have some free time on your hands right? I did anyways. This year, my husband and I decided to stay home. It’s hard to go somewhere if you have 3 dogs, 2 pigs, an ever increasing number of chickens, a pond full of koi and a cat. Someone has to feed, clean and walk them (well, not the fish) and with most of our family members on vacation, we decided to stay home and enjoy the peace and quiet. Well, that…and going places to make an insane amount of photos since we kind of are addicted to that. So we did a zoo, a butterfly farm, a few bird hides, a nature reserve, a visit to the countryside etc. Great times, loads of pics and many hours of editing. And just as I thought we were running out of ideas, my husband suggested we`d go to a botanical garden. I had never been to one, I didn’t know what it was really. Sure, I knew they are big gardens where you can walk around in, but I didn’t really know anything about their purpose. I was just interested in many lovely photographs! So we went there and I was shocked. This was so beautiful! So much better than I expected! This particular one was built on old fortresses, so there was a lot of difference in height. It had water and all kinds of wildlife like kingfishers and other birds, bumblebees, bees, butterflies…I couldn’t get enough! There was color everywhere, I saw the most amazing flowers and the weirdest plants all around me. And magnificent trees too. I thought about it for a little while and decided to do the overview photos in HDR, and make use of that wonderful fisheye lens, and I also brought my macro lens for the flowers and the close-ups. So…with changing lenses and going uphill and seeing so many new and wonderful things around every corner, it took me almost 6 hours to get everything I wanted. And believe me, the garden wasn’t THAT big! This was a great idea, I had a wonderful time. As a bonus there was this little teahouse where we had lunch, surrounded by hungry jackdaws waiting for you to either give them the crumbs or an opportunity to steal them. The perfect ending of a perfect day! This particular garden belonged to the university of Utrecht, in the Netherlands. And when I got home, I decided I wanted to know more about botanical gardens, because we have so many of them in the country! And of course Id share the info with you.

Garden Tripod 13 ~ page 50

Wikipedia told me a little bit: A botanical garden (or botanic garden) is a well-tended area displaying a wide range of plants labeled with their botanical names. It may contain specialist plant collections such as cacti and succulent plants, herb gardens, plants from particular parts of the world, and so on; there may be greenhouses, shade houses, again with special collections such as tropical plants, alpine plants, or other exotic plants. Visitor services at a botanical garden might include tours, educational displays, art exhibitions, b o o k ro o m s , o p e n - a i r t h e a t r i c a l a n d m u s i c a l performances, and other entertainment. So…where does this idea for a botanical garden, originate from? Because I sure would never have thought that up, for sure. Had to have been someone very special. I found out the first garden was founded in Italy, somewhere in the 16th century. Didn’t surprise me a whole lot, if you can make cars like Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Lamborghini and even the Fiat Multipla, you certainly are a creative bunch of people! They started out as medicinal gardens, but through time their purpose changed. Today, the gardens are often used for study and research programs in plant taxonomy. (I already looked that up for you: Plant taxonomy is the science that finds, identifies, describes, classifies, and names plants, amongst other things) So usually there are run by universities and other scientific research organizations. And this particular one I’ve been to, tried to find a good balance between their research, history and nature. They made different areas especially suitable for certain birds or insects. As you know, bee`s for instance, don’t do so well lately, and I saw a LOT of bees at that garden. They made absolutely sure, the bees would find everything they need, and nothing they don’t need. After a chat with one of the students tending to the gardens, we learned they are constantly improving everything, by building clay walls for the kingfishers for example. And they built it all on restored old fortresses, giving them a great purpose. So if you find yourself lost in all this free time that comes with vacation and you really don’t know what to do, grab your camera and find yourself a botanical garden. It’s worth it!

Garden Tripod 13 ~ page 62

Not just a snowflake Like other mathematical ideas, fractals involve numbers and equations. Unlike most other mathematical ideas, fractals can be used to generate complex, beautiful images that appeal to mathematicians and children alike. Swirling spirals, endless self-similar repetitions receding into the distance, geometric objects arranged in infinitely complex patterns, plant-like creations, geologic designs, clouds, and more, comprise the fractal landscape. These wondrous patterns defy logic yet owe their very existence to mathematics and computers. Fractals are an example of a type of art called algorithmic art (also called computer generated art) which results from executing an algorithm within a computer program designed to produce algorithmic art. A fractal image is created by evaluating an equation or by performing a sequence of instructions, and feeding the results back into the equation over and over again. During the iteration, you accumulate statistics and map the resulting data to colors, creating the fractal image. By varying the equation or the instructions, you can create a countless different types of fractal images. The classic algorithm used to generate fractals iterates a fractal formula with respect to a sample point on the complex plane, and colors each sample point based on the size and characteristics of the resulting iteration. This method is used to generate several fractal types, including Mandelbrot fractals, Julia fractals, Newton fractals, and Orbit Traps. Another popular algorithm used to generate fractals iterates a fractal formula a fixed number of times, equating the formula result at each step to a point on the complex plane. During the iteration, we keep track of which points were visited, how many times each point is visited, and additional information related to the sequence of points generated. Each point is colored based on these accumulated statistics. Sierpinski Triangles, IFS fractals, Strange Attractors, Dragon Flames, RepN Tiles, Apollonian Gasket fractals, Circle Inversion fractals, Symmetric Icons, Symmetric Attractors, Mobius Dragon IFS, Mobius Patterns, Grand Julian IFS, Elliptic Splits IFS, Splits Ngon fractals, Frieze Group Attractors, Wallpaper Group Attractors, and Hyperbolic Attractors, are all examples of this method of generating fractals.

Garden Tripod 13 ~ page 64

Other algorithms produce additional fractal types that include Hyperbolic Tilings, Kleinian Groups, Schottky Groups, L-System fractals, Apollonian Gasket fractals, Circle Inversion fractals, Ford Circles, and Unit Circle Group fractals. The Fractal Science Kit fractal generator is the program I use to generate fractals. It supports all these fractal types (and more) and can produce beautiful mathematical art from the fractal data, combined with complex transformations, color mapping methods, and other supported features. All of the details related to the fractal generation are handled by the program, and you can explore the different fractal algorithms and play with the numerous options to control the fractal image creation. A large set of example fractal properties files can be downloaded to get you started. The download contains the fractal properties files used to generate the images in the Fractal Science Kit Image Gallery. You can use these files as a starting point for your own explorations. For programmers, the Fractal Science Kit provides a programming environment to allow you to develop your own fractal programs but most users simply use the built-in programs to explore the world of fractals. Hundreds of builtin Programs are included and most of these provide options that yield countless variations. A fractal image is the result of combining a fractal equation with data collection methods, complex transformations, and color controllers (the instructions that map the data to colors). By choosing different combinations of these programs/options, you can generate countless fractal images without ever writing a single line of code.

The moon orbits the earth in a period of 27.32 days, going through a series of phases from new moon to full moon and back again during that time. Its average distance from the earth is some 384,000 km and it is 3,476 km in diameter. The bright and dark features which outline the face of ‘the Man in the Moon’ are highland and lowland regions, the former heavily pockmarked by craters due to the impact of meteorites. The moon has no atmosphere, and the same side is always presented to the earth.

Super-moon 23 June 2013 A super-moon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth. The technical name is the perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system. The term "super-moon" is not astronomical, but originated in modern astrology. The association of the Moon with both oceanic and crustal tides has led to claims that the super-moon phenomenon may be associated with increased risk of events such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, but the evidence of such a link is widely held to be unconvincing.
