Spring photowalk at Longwood Gardens

Spring photowalk at Longwood Gardens 

Life is better when there are flowers to photograph


Much of our spring garden has been planted and the painters just finished the exterior work at our home.  We are expecting rain that will be perfect for the flower bulbs that are already sprouting. 

When I photowalk through our Kentlands neighborhood in Gaithersburg, the spring flowers grab my attention.  It is easy to set aside the problems of the moment when your focus your attention and your camera on a beautiful flower or spring blossom.

Give photowalking a try for good physical and mental health.  You will want to fully enjoy the colors of the season.  And, you will have photographs to share in your blogs.

The photographs in this group were taken on April 21, 2013 during a day trip to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA.  Let me know if you have a favorite.  Life is better when there are flowers to photograph.

Hi Roy and Delores,

Great shots of the spring flowers in the Kentlands.

Here in Carlsbad, we can't have a garden this year. The water restrictions are too high.

Even the grass in the yard cannot be watered.

We are in a Three year drought with no end in sight.

Have a great day in the Kentlands my friends.

Best, Clint McKie

Thank you very much for your comments.  It is always good to receive your feedback.  It is a bit confusing to see the change in the order of comments, with the last appearing first.

I love the Anemone at the top.  It almost looks unreal.  So beautiful.  The poppies are also a favorite of mine.

The backwardness of the comments IS weird!  But the anemone on top is beautiful.  I always know if I want a pick-me-up to look up Roy Kelley and Longwood Gardens!

I fear that our cold weather has damaged more of the DC cherry blossoms.
