When a gardener chooses wallpaper for her iPhone, she considers many options.
She can choose a close up picture of a single hydrangea bloom…
Or maybe step back to use a picture of many hydrangea blooms.
She can maybe choose a snippet from one of her t-shirts…
Or choose a picture of the back of a chair her sister saw for sale.
She can use a copy of a picture she made with some secrets on it…
Or use a picture of an old-fashioned book, just because its nice and green.
She can display a picture of the view from Biltmore to remind her of the recent garden bloggers fling,
Or display a picture of her own gardens to remind her of home.
She might even consider a green bandana background to show she’s in the club.
Regardless of which picture she chooses, when a gardener chooses wallpaper for her iPhone, she almost always chooses something from the garden.
It’s a nice reminder that she is a gardener, just in case she might forget.
I have a picture of the large rhododendron in bloom as my wallpaper…
-And on my computer at work I have an over-all view of the garden. Whenever I get too stressed at the office I close down everything, sit back and look at what the garden is like on a summer day with a couple of friends lounging in the sun.
I never thought of using old book covers or t-shirt designs. Fab, fab, fab idea! I have an old copy of "The Secret Garden" that would make a good choice. I also have a t-shirt for xmas that is a xmas tree with all sorts of gardening tools on it and under the tree it says Hoe, Hoe, Hoe. It is too small for me now, but I have hung on, hoping. Now I know what to do with it! Thanks!
And one can always tell one's phone apart from the non-gardener of the family!
When a gardener decides to wallpapaer . . . .
Mine's a sky shot I took on a walk with Mr I!

First I thought it was wallpaper for a…..wall!! My 'wallpaper' for my not a smart phone is a sunrise shot. Don't plan on getting up for many now that we are retired, good reminder of what it looked like. 🙂
Right up there with gardens photos are those of family and grand pets.
Now you inspired me to change my pictures on my desktop, not on my phone yet as i love what is in there, that is undersea landscape. I can't scuba dive so have to be content with that. At least, the gardens and flowers i always see on land. thanks.
Guess I am a gardener then… I have a picture of my peony in bloom on my phone.
it is so nice that i'm not the only one that does that when choosing an iPhone wallpaper, and a wallpaper for my laptop 🙂
