Today I made a run to Longwood Gardens. I wanted to see the Orchid display, and see if the Blue Himalayan Poppies were in bloom. I met Jeff Wolk in the parking lot at 9:00 and we headed in. I had not been shooting for two weeks and I was looking forward to making some new images...but really didn't have a mission. It was quite a warm day and carrying my gear through the green house was work. The orchid display is nice but I don't think there are as many as last year. I had to get my photo mojo going again and it took a little visual warming up. I never did make any orchid images, and after three hours I was working on a headache from the heavily perfumed air from the star gazer lilies. So we had some lunch and regrouped. After lunch we dropped our serious gear in the car and enjoyed a stroll outside around the grounds in early spring like weather. It was nice to get out and enjoy the fresh air..
