Photo Post – Spring Edition

With spring trying hard to establish itself in the DC area, it’s a good time to be out photographing nature. So, here are a few shots from two visits1 to our Northern Virginia gem, Meadowlark Botanical Gardens2.

More from my gallery is here and Kathy’s much better photos are here.

PurpleJust loved the vibrant purple in these flowers.

Turtles and ReflectionTurtles taking advantage of the bright sunshine.

DaffodilThe park features daffodils (and daffodil-like flowers) in a variety of beautiful colors.

 

Cypress KneesThanks to a well placed marker, I finally learned that these growths are called cypress knees and are part of the tree’s root system.


1. Trip one, at the start of April, was cut short by a thunderstorm.

2. Right around the corner from Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts, another great location for a photowalk.
