Running around in the Gardens with a Camera

My crafty juices are finally flowing again, but the project I wanted to post about this week isn’t done yet.  (Well, it is… but it isn’t.  YOU’LL SEE WHEN I POST IT!)  So for now, here’s some photography:

My dad and I have a family membership to Longwood Gardens, which is only about a 10-20 minute drive from my house.  Since the membership means I get in free, I like to go there over the summer and take photos/sketch/play in the children’s garden.  It’s a lot of fun, and I sometimes come home with great artwork.

This is a macro of some leavy/viney thing that spiraled onto itself.

Another leaf.  I’m a sucker for macro shots XD

A shot taken from one of the treehouses in their current display (Longwood hosts cool displays all the time, but I like their outdoor summer ones the best.)

A white plant.  The bush that this came from looked like a fluffy pile of snow in the middle of all the green.

Like many small-minded creatures, I am easily distracted by bright colors.  Pretty orange flower!  *snap*

Pretty pink flowers!  *snap*  This is some kind of orchid.  I intend to go back and find the specific name.

Next week, I should have finished the sewing project that was supposed to be in this post, and have a drawing project started (my model is going to rot soon!)
