Chasing Butterflies

While at the rose gardens, I wandered over to the Idea Garden. What a fabulous place! I would love to have an idea garden someday, a place where dreams can be awakened and inspiration is birthed. I felt like a school girl as I chased butterflies with my camera. Those flighty little things didn’t like to stay still for long (much like someone else I know very well), but they were too beautiful to not try to get a few shots of them.

The bees were much easier to photograph although the tables were turned a bit as I found myself running from them on occasion!

I have such a fascination with capturing bugs on plants or flowers. I just think there’s something so amazing about witnessing pollination. We serve an amazingly, creative God.

What a great day in the gardens!

Beautiful! I love how you captured so much detail.

What makes a garden an 'idea garden'?
