Rhododendron Species Garden Visit

For a while I’ve been meaning to head out to this garden and take some photos, particularly of the “meadow” of Himalayan Blue Poppies. You can see for yourself how “meadow”-y this space turned out to be, but it was a lovely day even without the vast slope of space I was anticipating.

There are so many of these that only some of them will be full size. I’ll try to be reasonably artistic in my arrangements…

And I have no idea what at least half of these are called. You’ll know the blue poppies when we get there, trust me.

  1. I’m not sure which is more impressive, your eye for the shot or your camera for capturing it. Either way, it’s a great combo!

    • Wow thanks! I love that camera, but the funny thing is that I had 4 years in art school and never developed an “eye” for composition. Frankly, I stank at it. Somehow, in the intervening years, in addition to all the other wisdom I’ve gained, I seem to have found my “eye” at last. No idea how/when that happened!

  2. Wow, I’m staggered by the beauty of these flowers as you’ve shot them. Glorious! I’ve never seen a blue Poppy before-heavenly, as are the irises; some of these pix are fairly transporting. What sweet payback for your spring/winter rains suffering. What an upper! Thanks.
