Back to the Gardens

I took another trip to Gibbs Gardens yesterday – I figured since I bought the four season pass I might as well get my money’s worth.  Besides, it is a great place to grab a little soul nourishment.

On my first trip, I was delighted by the millions of daffodils that were blossoming, as well as the friendly frogs that were swimming around in one of the many ponds.  This time, I was captivated by a flock of Cedar Waxwings that were flitting about amongst the trees surrounding the pond that, before long, will be filled with water lilies.

Most of them stayed obscured by branches or a bit out of the range of my lens, but every now and then one would land close enough for me to fire off a quick click of the shutter.


The bright morning light cast such a lovely glow over them.

Several glorious flowers (a few friends have told me they look like Poppies) were blooming and practically begged to have their picture taken.

I know little about flowers, but I find the center section to be absolutely fascinating – like a cross between an undersea creature and something from outer space.

Ah…incredibly simple, yet simply incredible.

My goal (hold me to it!) is to try and return to this lovely location every month as I feel certain their will always be fresh beauty to behold.

  1. Terrific pictures, Kathy. I am already looking forward to your monthly posts. My walks in Holden Arboretum are similar in purpose. I love to watch the seasons change and, like your Gibbs Garden, the Arboretum is a fantastic place to do it.

  2. Wow I loved all the photos Kathy 💜 cedar waxwings are so incredible 😍
    That would be a special treat for us if you visit the gardens every month 😀

  3. Beautiful photos! It looks like a wonderful and very peaceful place to visit! Cedar Waxwings are such a joy to see. I never tire of their beauty. And your poppies are one of my favorite flowers. 🌈💕🌼
