Today was cold and rainy with temperatures that just chill you to the bone. I had a long, long day of work and training sessions. For my photo today, I chose to once again review some of my photographs from last year – as I anticipate what will be coming into bloom in the coming weeks. It’s been a great exercise to look over last years spring photos as it reminds me what to look for in both the native and public garden environments on the island for the rest of the month.
The above shot was taken at Asticou Azalea Garden and is a beautiful peony that I stumbled upon last year. When I downloaded this photograph last year, I realized that the one flower was somewhat obscured by a bud that was hovering in the foreground. But, I still love the photograph. The rest of the flowers and the petals are in good focus and capture the essence of this delicate flower. I plan on photographing this same plant this year – and hopefully do a much better job of composing the picture! 😉
