A Day at the Botanical Gardens

Web challenge purple flower


I visited the Longwood Gardens website today and this was the inspiration for my page. Earlier this year I went to the Orchid Show at the Bronx Botanical Gardens. The orchids were spectacular and I was able to get some great shots. This one is one of my favorites.

Thank you so much Jesse77! I use a Panasonic Lumix 7.1 camera and I love it. My favorite thing to do is take pictures of flowers. I use them to make Christmas gifts of mousepads, calendars and books. Here's the link to my web gallery, if you would like to see the rest of the orchids. http://www.me.com/gallery/#100249 Thanks again and Happy Halloween!

I am humbled. Thank you so much Ruth. I had them myself at one time but when I moved to my present location, they died. So now, whenever I can, I go to all the gardens I can and enjoy them there. I hope you enjoy the pictures. You can also download the hi res file from the site if you wish. Marina
