Mum Fest 2017

Hello! Today I wanted to share a few photos from the annual Barberton, OH Mum Festival at Lake Anna from this past weekend. I went with my mom, and we always look forward to this event every fall. I love being surrounded by flowers, and have such fond memories of Lake Anna from when I was a kid. The only thing bad was that the temperatures were above 90 degrees this weekend! Oh, it was a scorcher out there!!! Enjoy the photos!

Soft Focus

Hello!

Today I wanted to share a few photographs I took in the garden last weekend. I looove our Rose of Sharon bush (and I’ve shared photos of it before!). But, this time I challenged myself a little more and took some soft focus photos. Dreamy! If you don’t have a soft focus lens for your DSLR, I suggest you purchase one and just enjoy what it can do for your photographs!

Thanks for stopping by!

Azalea

Our azaleas in the garden are in full bloom right now. I love how gorgeous these flowers look. Here’s a little info I found about this beautiful flower: a strong symbol of womanhood; softness; fragility; passion; also to take care of oneself. A lovely gift for this Mother’s Day weekend, don’t you think?

Spring

This spring’s weather has been up & down- one day it’s 80 degrees, and the next it’s 45 and with a cold rain. Ugh. But, the garden has not disappointed! Here’s a look at what’s been popping up in the garden so far!

Orchids

A few weekends ago, we went to the local greenhouse to attend their annual Orchid show. Every March, I get really antsy because winter starts getting on my nerves and all I want to see are new blooms! So this show comes at a perfect time! I can get my flowers fix while winter dredges on…

Here are a few photos from the event.

Rain, Rain, Rain

It’s actually not raining this afternoon!! Makes me happy. I think it’s been raining for the last 2 weeks!! I did get some cool shots outdoors in the rain though!
