|Sherwood Gardens, Baltimore, MD--Magnolia, Magnolia, Magnolia!|
Over the last couple of weeks, since we visited my in-laws in Baltimore, MD, I have had quite a few opportunities to photograph flowers, starting with Baltimore's beautiful Sherwood Gardens which is filled with magnolia trees, beds full of multi-colored tulips, daffodils, flowering crab apples and cherry trees. It was a gorgeous, sunny day and I had a great time wandering all over the gardens, taking shots.
And just in my neighborhood, up the street, are two brilliantly pink cherry trees that are simply laden with blossoms (image 4) and scads of pink tulips blooming right in my garden.
I was very happy to discover that in all the construction work on the Capisic Pond area last summer, the Lupine field that had just started to bloom well last summer had been left intact! There are loads of Lupine plants growing, so be prepared for some more flower posts in June (or maybe even before!)

Happy Spring everyone!
