It would seem that Mom and I hadn't had enough togetherness during our recent trip to New York City, so the Thursday after we returned, we found our way to the Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory in Ft. Wayne (IN). Our American Horticultural Society membership allows us free admission, so we use it several times during the year when we want a nice, relaxing stroll through their gardens.
Never does it feel more like a respite from the outside world than it does in winter. The colors of the flowers and the aroma of "green" does a person good, physically and mentally.
Each time I visit the conservatory, I try to photograph something I haven't before or things I have, in a different way. And some things are just so beautiful that I never tire of photographing them any way at all.
From the day's visit:
