Arboretum Trip

Purple Ball Flowers

Yesterday was a wonderful day. Hubby and the kids took me to an arboretum, giving me loads of flowers to photograph. It was crazy hot for a mid May day and we were all really done by the time we made a lap through one of the heavily treed trails, but it was awesome.

Sadly, I have no clue the names of about half of the flowers I took pictures of, so I apologize in advance for the ignorance in that regard. This particular flower was one of my favorites. They had a variety of colors and they were tall and the ball of flowers was good size even if the flowers themselves were on the tiny side.

It was a perfect time of year to go, even with the temps, because there were so many things in bloom. I do wish we’d gone either much earlier or much later in the day because being there in the middle made the lighting weird at times. I took nearly a hundred pics, but too many of them just didn’t come out in the end because I really didn’t like the lighting. I still had a ton that came out beautifully. Enough to be able to post something new for several days.

I am a slightly sane artist, amateur photographer, book addict, wife, mom and raging introvert. I have more hobbies than I can count, so it is beyond shocking that I manage to find time to do any of them, let alone most of them and still have time to do anything else. Of all the talents I claim, writing wasn’t one of them until my muse dropped the idea for a book on my head.
