    What a pretty flower! I don’t think I’ve seen that before.

  2. You get great shots at the botanic garden… do they have special photo hours or are you simply skilled enough to get awesome backgrounds without people? This one is stunning!!

    • Thank you!
      No, no photo hours. It wasn’t real busy when we went, and all you really have to do is make sure there’s no one standing behind the flowers, which wouldn’t have been that difficult even if there were a lot of people, because there are signs everywhere, asking people to stay on the pathways.

    • I wish I knew them, but that day I took pictures of the little signs next to them, that told you what they are. Unfortunately not all had a sign, and sometimes I forgot to take a picture of it πŸ˜›

    • No, it doesn’t. It just looks like a happy little flower. Yup, definitely! You just have a dirty mind πŸ˜‰

  7. I love all your beautiful photos from the Fort Worth Botanic Garden. I wish I had such a place around here. Our Botanical Garden has a greenhouse – and there are plans making this bigger and better. But I think I will go there soon – it’s a long time since I have been there. Thank you for your inspiration!

  8. Beautiful!

    I had to come see it, wondering if it was in any way related to the Ohio Buckeye. Then it occurred to me that I really don’t know much about the Ohio Buckeye (the one that is a tree, not a college student). So now I’m off to learn about it, see if it flowers, etc.
