Franklin Park Conservatory

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

A few weekends ago, we went to the Franklin Park Conservatory. It was fun to be in a tropical environment for the afternoon, while it was cold and gloomy outside.

Also, I LOVE flowers and especially enjoy taking millions of pictures of them. I have been wanting to practice using my new camera on something other than the pups (even though they are cute...ha!) so this was the perfect opportunity.

I did take a million photos (or maybe around 130), and these are my favorites that turned out pretty well. I mean I am no professional, but I was super excited about how these turned out.

I totally want to go back again in a few months for the butterfly exhibit (starts March 9!!), so expect more pictures in the future :) Right now they are featuring orchids, so there are beautiful orchids all over the place!! It totally made me want to get an orchid...hopefully soon for our new guest room/office!

Hope you enjoy, and let me know which ones you like. I like them all, but I am also totally enjoying #7 of the hibiscus flower. Oh and of course love the one of my partner-in-crime, aka photography assistant :)

  1. I'm not a flower person as in, I can't grow anything to save my life...but I do enjoy botanical gardens more than the average person...and def more than my husband who always puts up a fight about going to any! New follower from the hop!


We love hearing from you!
