Nature Gift Cards

Ever since I picked up a camera, one of my joys has been photographing nature. By turning my pictures into photo greeting cards, my hope is they inspire you to write to your friends and loved ones more often. Each boxed set comes with six, blank gift cards, featuring some of my favorite botanical images from the Gail Russell Photographic collection.

Growing up, I lived across the street from a nature preserve. I spent many hours learning from the plants and trees – just sitting and listening, opening myself up to receive what was being shared. During this time, I developed the belief that much like myself, Mother Nature is compelled to express herself through her creations of plants, animals, and the overall environment around us.

The photographs for this greeting card set are from one of my Gail Russell Photography exhibits called “Green Universe.” Many of them come from my garden right here in Northern New Mexico. Whether you use them as gift cards or to stay in touch with your friends and loved ones through a heartfelt, handwritten message, my hope is that they inspire you to create the same way nature does: continuously and without reserve.

When I was very young, I spent many hours learning from the trees and plants in the nature preserve that was across the street from my house.

Later, a very special book greatly influenced my understanding of, and attraction to ,the Botanical world."The Secret Life of Plants" by Christopher Bird and Peter Tomkins (1973) revealed a whole new understanding for me. This was a fascinating account of the physical, emotional and spiritual relations between plants and humankind. My love affair with the botanical world has been a life long journey.

I continue to learn what I can and receive the beauty of the plants Many of these images are from my own garden in Northern New Mexico.

These photographs are part of an exhibit called "Green Universe" the Images that make large framed pieces are also made into greeting cards. I hope you enjoy them and be inspired to write more often to friends and Loved Ones.
