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!

  • Light at Bass Harbor During our recent trip to Maine, we made a point of getting to Acadia National Park. While we had visited Bar Harbor, Mount Desert Island, and Acadia many times before, because of the relatively steep entrance fee ($25 per vehicle – up to 15 passengers –  or $12 per adult, all good for 7 days, [...]
