In memory of Gene Den Hartog, Kindra’s grandfather.

I was helping with sorting some slides Gene collected and was able to scan in a few to play around with.

The lighting in this photo is what captured my attention. I believe that this, in addition to being on the cover of the Gardeners of America / Men’s Garden Club publication, placed first in the Iowa State Fair.

I will probably be posting more as I have time to scan and archive these amazing photographs.
