Spring is still in bloom

 I finally made it to Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens this year! Thanks to my company giving us half a day off on Friday, I made my way over to enjoy the late, cool, almost cold and overcast spring weather. Friday was also the first day of the Butterflies Live exhibit, which I missed last year. They will be there until October and I plan on going again and actually reading the informational posters as I was, as always, more interested in taking pictures ;-)

While I was in the conservatory, I had to take a look at all of the orchids and other tropical plants.

While I could have spent another hour in there, there were plenty of other things to look at, including the rose garden.

I spotted a cute little family of geese quietly gliding across the pond before making my way over the bridge.

So many things to see!

  1. Buy an annual membership, it’s a good value and you get 2 free guest passes to use within that year. Even when you think you’ve shot absolutely everything there is to see there, there’s always something unexpected. Like the time I saw a goose sitting on her nest, or a snake in the pond, or almost bumped into a hawk.
