Renegging on my promise to post, I will instead offer a double cheat.
I'm letting Shelley at BurningBird give a tour of a botanical garden. Haven't been to one in years, since we left the Washington, DC area. I wish we had one here. They are an excellent tonic both for winter doldrums and hot, muggy summer Dog Days.
Shelley's photos are astounding, as always. The difference between photography and shutterbugging.
