I’m fortunate to work from home. HR types call this “location independent.” While my remote status is a result of the pandemic, I worked mostly from home for five years prior to 2020.
I don’t miss the soul-sucking hours wasted in traffic. I do miss my cubicle packed with gardening books and tchotchkes. My desk was a pit stop for friends to stop by and chitchat about gardens, kids and food, all of my favorite subjects.
These days, I convey my love for gardening with virtual backgrounds. They’re dandy conversation starters. I jump on calls early and the first folks in the meeting will say Hi and ask about the gardens behind me.
Sometimes, I use my own pictures, but I mix it up with favorites from other gardens. Here are my favorites for you to bookmark. They’re easily downloadable and free to use:
