Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden
After torrential downpour, the sun came out. Time to hit the Rhododendron Garden. It’s free from Labor Day until March 1st. And it’s so close to home. Some interesting migratory waterfowl showed themselves. I have yet to see any buffleheads and ring-necked ducks!
I love the entrance, the open-air passageway between two buildings.
The garden’s bridges are a delight. I can see why weddings and photographers are attracted to this garden.
I spy some ducks.
Some flowers still remain.
The greenery in this photo is almost overwhelming.
I spy a heron!
Okay, let me explain this awful photograph. I do not have a zoom lens for my camera. However, I do have a scope. I wanted a close-up picture of the heron. Well, this was the best I could do before my eye got tired of squinting.
Some American Wigeons, Gadwalls, and a female Northern Shoveler.
The sun and shadows on this tree are gorgeous.
What vibrant red!
That beautiful blue sky again.
These delicate pink flowers are unfamiliar to me. I like them quite a bit!
Hello ducks! See you next time!
