The Changing (Floral) Landscape

We recently renewed our two-year family membership to the wonderful Norfolk Botanical Garden (has it been two years already?), and wanted to get back to see if the day lilies were in bloom, and to see what else the season had brought. We were not disappointed!

Red Dahlia - Scott Thomas ImagesBefore even entering the visitor’s center we were greeted by these lovely red dahlias, so couldn’t resist a portrait. Once inside, Ruth asked if I wanted to visit the orchids. “Well, yes!” Those haven’t been processed yet, but look for them soon!

The day lillies were out in force (and yet, there will be additional lillies out soon, that were not ready yet – so another visit is being planned!), as well as several other lovely flowers, and even a few azaleas still going strong. What a lovely walk. It left me with many images yet to work through, before they are ready to share!

  • Something Slightly Different … and now for something completely slightly different!

  • What are Floral Portraits? Lately I have enjoyed creating and sharing several “Floral Portraits.” In fact, the latest of these, Peppermint Camellia, is below. But what is a “Floral Portrait”? In one sense, Floral Portraits is simply the name of an ongoing series of images I am in the process of creating. In another sense, a more personal sense, they are [...]
